Hey everyone,

A while back I made a thread about convenient foods to carry to school. I've been making some simple rolls here and there, but I'd like to ask you guys for miscellaneous tips/advice. I'm kind of slow and sloppy, and I practice, but you experts must know some secrets.

Thanks!

I'm an by no means an expert, more of a well intentioned novice. But the simplest thing to me is to not use too much filling, rice, vegetable, fish whatever roll your making less is more so you can keep it tight and neat.

I'm always guilty of over stuffing and making a mess.

I always seem to make a mess regardless.

Is there a specific type of seaweed I should be getting?

any sushi seaweed will do(you can bake seaweed about 10~15 seconds for best taste) and make sure use "sushi rice" not "plain rice"!!
sushi rice:
2 cup short grain rice
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
then add any ingredients you like: egg, cucumber, grilled fish, shrimp, crab meat, asparagus, fish egg...etc.
