Rolling sushi may seem intimidating at first, but with a bit of practice and the right technique, you’ll be a sushi pro. Follow these simple steps:

- Layer the ingredients: Arrange the salmon, avocado, and cucumber along the side of the nori closest to you.
- Roll it up: Tuck in the ingredients tightly and seal the roll.
With each attempt, your sushi-making skills will improve. And even if your roll isn’t perfect, the taste will be great, the process will be fun, and the satisfaction will be undeniable.
