We had some yellowtail sashimi the other day so I made Yellowtail Roll as appetizer.
Unlike other kinds of sushi roll, this thin roll (we call it Hosomaki 細巻き) is really easy to make. Plus, these are not inside-out rolls (裏巻き) which require a bit more practice, so it’s perfect if you are trying to make sushi for the first time.

- 1½ cup Sushi Rice
- 3.3 oz (93g) sashimi grade yellowtail
- 1 sheet nori, cut in half crosswise
- 3 Tbsp. chopped green onion/scallion
- Soy sauce
- Pickled red ginger
- Bamboo mat, covered with plastic wrap
- Tezu (vinegared hand-dipping water): ¼ cup water + 2 tsp. rice vinegar
- Cut the yellowtail into ¼ inch cubes and chop into smaller pieces.
- Lay a sheet of nori, shiny side down, on the plastic covered bamboo mat. Wet your fingers in tezu and spread ¾ cup of the rice evenly onto nori sheet.
- Place half of the chopped yellowtail at the bottom end of the nori sheet.
- Line the edge of nori sheet at the bottom end of the bamboo mat. Grab the bottom edge of the bamboo mat while keeping the fillings in place with your fingers, roll into a tight cylinder. Lift the edge of the bamboo mat and continue to roll it forward while keeping gentle pressure on the mat.
- With a very sharp knife, cut the roll in half and then cut each half into 3-4 pieces. Clean the knife with a damp cloth every few slices. Serve the sushi with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce.
