Crab stick, melt-in-mouth flying fish roe, buttery avocado, cucumber and creamy mayonnaise. This international sushi roll is a sure winner when introducing someone to sushi.
It was invented by a very innovative Japanese Chef in 1960s in California, US, in order to make sushi more appealing to the American palate. He made the rolls with the rice outside and nori-sheet inside (since Americans were not used to nori) . In fact, it opened them up to try more authentic Japanese sushi and contributed to the spread of sushi internationally.
