Crab and Avocado Roll Recipe


  • 1 Nori Sheet
  • 1/2 cup - Sushi Rice (Sushi Rice Recipe)
  • 2 - Crab Sticks (or 2 ounces of lump crab meat) -
  • 1/4 - Avocado
  • 2 teaspoons - Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon - Soy Sauce
  • 1 bowl - Warm Vinagered Water (Vinegared Water Recipe)


  1. Chop the crab sticks (or pick through can of lump crab meat for shells), into small pieces that will break up when you mix them.
  2. In a bowl, mix the crab sticks (or crab meat), mayonnaise and soy sauce together.
  3. Take the half sheet of nori and put it shiny side down, with the long side facing you.
  4. Dip your hands in the bowl of vinagered water. The vinagered water is used to prevent the sushi rice from sticking. You want your hands to be damp, not wet.
  5. Gently pat and spread the 1/2 cup of sushi rice in an even layer on each sheet using your fingers. Do not mash or smear the rice on the nori.
  6. Slice the avocado into thin, crescent shaped pieces.
  7. Place the crab mixture horizontally across the nori.
  8. Place the avocado horizontally across the nori.
  9. Roll the sushi using the Maki sushi rolling method.
  10. On the cutting board, cut the crab and avacado roll in half.
  11. Take the two halves, place them side by side, and cut the in half again.
  12. Cut all pieces in half again, which should leave you with 8 pieces.
