Keep a small bowl of water nearby. Use your fingers to spread a layer of rice over the seaweed sheet, covering all but the top third. Dip your fingers in the bowl of water if the rice sticks to your hands.

Step 8

Carefully smear a line of cream cheese along the middle of the rice. Then top the cream cheese with salmon & avocado slices. Add a bit of water to the top edge of the seaweed sheet, so it sticks closed after rolling.
