Impressive, gorgeous looking maki. Just follow the steps!
- Place the shiitake in a pan with the retained soaking water and season with the mirin and shoyu or tamari soya sauce. Bring to the boil and simmer until the liquid has completely evaporated (roughly 15mins), then leave to cool. Cut the skinned and stoned avocado and cucumber into long thin strips.
- Place a piece of clingfilm on the sushi mat and the nori on top. Spread the sushi rice over the nori, then sprinkle the green nori sprinkle over the surface. Turn the layer of nori and rice upside down onto the clingfilm so that the nori is now on top.
- Place the avocado, cucumber and shiitake mushrooms evenly down the centre. Roll the mat up from the near edge. Remove the roll from the mat and clingfilm and slice into 6 pieces with a wet knife.
