Arguably the most recognisable sushi out there, futomaki sees fresh raw salmon, cucumber and avocado encased in sushi rice and wrapped in nori seaweed. The hardest part about making this is rolling the sushi in your bamboo mat, but Hideki is on-hand to show you how to do it. Ensure your rice is cooked correctly and that your salmon is as fresh and high quality as possible – and be sure not to put too much filling on the seaweed. Watch Hideki in action then give it a go yourself.
