Salmon, Goat Cheese, and Apple Maki

Serves 2


-2 sheets nori
-1 cup prepared sushi rice (I used brown sushi rice from my local Whole Foods, but feel free to use what you like best)
-1.5 ounces sushi grade salmon, cut into thin strips
-1.5 ounces goat cheese, cut into strips about 1 centimeter wide
-1/4 a Granny Smith apple, cut into match sticks


Lay a piece of nori down on your rolling mat, shiny side down. Spread 1/2 the cooked sushi rice over the nori, leaving a 1/2-inch strip of nori uncovered at the bottom. To make this process easier, you’ll want to keep your hands wet by dipping your fingers in a small bowl of water.

Place 1/2 the sushi, goat cheese, and apple along the strip of uncovered nori. Using the rolling mat, begin to tightly roll the sushi starting at the filling side and rolling away from you.

Using a sharp knife, slice the roll into your desired number of pieces. Repeat the above steps with the remaining ingredients and serve with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and wasabi.

Note: If you’re rolling sushi for the first time, the blog Sushi Day has a very visual demo.
