Smoked Salmon, Avocado & Cucumber Sushi

A simple and delicious lunch!  

Ingredients to make sushi rice:
[Makes 5 sushi rolls]
3 cups sushi rice
6 tbsp sushi seasoning
3 tbsp sugar
1.5 tsp salt

You can refer here on how to make sushi rice.  However, I cooked the sushi rice like I would normally cook rice in the rice cooker.  Just combine the seasoning, sugar and salt and mix into the rice using a pair of chopsticks to fluff up the rice at the same time.

Ingredients to make Sushi Rolls:

smoked salmon
half a cucumber, deseeded and cut into lengthwise
rice seasoning (Nori Komi Furikake)
