Salmon and cucumber maki

maki saumon concombreIn recent years Japanese restaurants are popping up all over France, and as in Europe they are popular in Canada. It seems that Quebec is following this trend: restaurateurs are taking advantage of this craze for Japanese cuisine and many chain restaurants have emerged.
Although we love to go to the restaurant it is also nice to be home sometimes. Or when you’re at home and you start feeling the sushi or maki urge, the simplest solution is to call the nearest the delivery man. But is it really difficult to make them yourself? You like Japanese food and you have time ? Well that’s perfect because today I offer you a maki workshop!


– 7oz of Japanese rice

– Rice vinegar

– Sugar
