Dynamite Sushi Roll

The Dynamite Sushi roll is a delicious creation popularized in the United States. It involves combining fried or baked sea food with mayonnaise, chilli and vegetables like cucumber and carrots to create a delicious mixture of flavors.

Use water during your sushi cooking

Have a small bowl of water and a wet cloth close by, and use damp hands.

Carefully handling the ingredients
