Cover a bamboo sushi rolling mat with plastic wrap.
Place a sheet of nori on the mat.
Dip hands in water and clap to remove excess water. It helps to keep small bowl of water near you and a towel.
Spread a layer of rice across the nori. You will use about 1 cup cooked rice per full nori sheet.
Cover nori to all edges leaving 1 inch margin on top edge.
Dip hands in water if they get too sticky.
Use bamboo mat to lift edges up and over filling.
Use fingers to tuck roll
Tuck mat tightly into roll shape so only nori with no rice is exposed, pull back and tighten.
Move mat and shape roll, repeat squeeze and shape.
Slice and wipe with wet towel after each slice to prevent knife from getting too sticky.
Cut in half and then each half into 3 segments.
