I love preparing maki (rolled sushi) at home as they make a fast and filling meal. While my workmanship is less than perfect (I need more practice!), they still taste great and cost a fraction of the price compared to ordering it outside. It becomes an incentive for me to make my own kani maki as I always ensure that I sneak in my favourite Japanese mayonnaise into the roll – so sinful but so delicious. Serve it with some miso soup and pickled ginger for a fuss free Japanese lunch.

      Use only sushi rice, short-grain or sticky rice.

    I reccomend everyone to get sushi mold from daiso, its only $2 plus it makes sushi faster and neater. More efficient. The bamboo mat doesnt work well for me.

    Hi, so does the original kani maki have no mayonnaise?

      I have eaten both kani maki with or without mayonnaise (without seems much more common, and also if you take out, it keeps better). As for the original historic trail, I have no idea. It’s totally up to you to include it or not.
