Recipe Difficulty Medium


  • 1 cup Bento Sushi Rice
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 1 ½ tbsp rice vinegar
  • ½ tbsp sugar
  • 1 Bento Bamboo Rolling Map
  • 3 Bento Seaweed Sheets
  • 1 package Bento Sesame Seed Mix
  • 6 ounces sushi-grade salmon, cut into ½-inch strips
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, seeds removed, thinly sliced
  • Spicy mayo
  • Pickled ginger
  • Wasabi


  1. Wash 1 cup of rice until there is no starch coming out of it (1 cup = 3 rolls)
  2. Place rice into pot with water (1:2 ratio of rice to water)
  3. Place pot on stove and turn to highest setting, stir every minute (use a wooden spoon)
  4. When water starts to boil, set heat on low so it just simmers and cover pot
  5. After 6 minutes, check water level. If there is no more water and only large grains of rice, then it is ready. Otherwise, cover pot and check again every 2 minutes.
  6. When rice is ready, season with mixture of rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Alternatively, season with Bento Rice Seasoning (1 ½ TBSP). Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  7. Cover Bento Bamboo Rolling Mat with saran wrap and place Bento Seaweed Sheet on top. Leave small space at edges.
  8. Spread thin layer of rice over seaweed and press firmly. TIP: keep fingers wet as you spread rice.
  9. Gently lift the bottom of the bamboo mat up and over the sushi. Press and shape the ingredients into a tube. Roll with pressure so you get a firm roll.
  10. Roll until just the edge of the seaweed sheet is visible, then seal edge with a bit of cold water.
  11. Firm roll by pressing bamboo mat around roll until feels uniformly snug.
  12. Slice sushi roll in half, then slice each half into even pieces with sharp knife. TIP: Keep knife wet each time you cut into roll.
  13. Get creative and plate your True North Seafood Salmon Sushi Platter!
