Here is another easy-to-make sushi recipe from chef Devaux. This salmon avocado roll is so pretty to look at, yet so easy to make. With this sushi recipe, no sushi rice is used. You can forget about the not so creative part of making sushi, which is washing and rinsing rice, and mixing sushi vinegar while fanning until it cools down.
Preparing the avocado is where the fun begins. With a sharp knife, slice as many thin pieces as possible to create a rolling sheet of avocado with each slice overlapping another. One unorthodox approach to this recipe is using raspberry jelly and a brush to add aesthetically pleasing element to the presentation.
Impress your dinner guest with your own salmon avocado rolls.
From this video, the process of making a beautiful carrot butterfly garnish looks fairly simple, but it actually involves careful planning combined with an extremely sharp knife with good knife skills.
The reveals what to look out for when slicing the carrot and how to shape it. Slicing the carrot and cucumber may require some practice to get it right. These eye-catching garnish will add so much more to your sushi presentations.

Who doesn’t like teriyaki chicken? Unlike traditional sushi, having to fight the stigma of being labeled as raw fish in the West for decades before it finally became mainstream Japanese cuisine, teriyaki chicken was an instant hit. Meat in general, no matter how it’s prepared, has always been well accepted in the US. Teriyaki chicken is now ingrained deep in American food culture. Combine these two inventions from Japan, you have teriyaki chicken roll. The recipe is quite simple and it can be served as a snack or a finger food.
After seeing typical nigiri such as maguro, ebi, and salmon for so many years, it is great to see sushi with a bit of creativity. This Salmon Battleship recipe is innovative in a way the rice is wrapped with a slice of salmon finished with salmon roe filling. I love salmon and ikura just as much. This recipe combines both to provide a new way to enjoy sushi. It is genius and I would love to try it.
