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 7

Smear a line of tuna along the middle of the rice. Then lay the strips of cucumber over the tuna. Add a little bit of water to the top edge of the seaweed, so it sticks closed after rolling.
