First prepare the rice. Rinse under running water for 5 minutes and strain all excess water. Place in rice cooker, or steamer and add 330ml of water. When rice is cooked place in a glass tray. Mix together the rice vinegar, salt and sugar whilst the rice is cooking, and then add to when the rice is ready.

For Tofu Maki: Lay one Nori sheet on a sushi mat and cover all but the top 6th with rice. In a line along the middle add a bunch of chives, the thai asparagus, enoki mushrooms, wasabi mayo and a line of tofu. Bring the end nearest to you up and around the ingredients and squeeze, clutching the roll with both hands. Move both thumbs back under the roll, roll-up with your hands to create a nice circular finish. Now cut the roll in half, and each half into thirds. A wet knife helps to ensure ease of cutting.

For California Roll (Inside-out): Lay one half sized Nori sheet on a sushi mat and cover entirely with rice (1/4” thick) and then scatter with sesame seeds. Turn the sheet upside-down so the clear nori sheet is facing you and the rice is on the other side. In a line along the middle add a bunch of chives, line of crab salad, avocado and mayo. Bring the end nearest to you up and around the ingredients and squeeze, clutching the roll with both hands. Move both thumbs back under the roll creating a nice circular finish. Now cut the roll in half, and each half into thirds

For Salmon inside-out roll: Lay one half sized Nori sheet on a sushi mat and cover entirely with rice (1/4” thick) and then scatter with sesame seeds.
