Turkey Maki / Roll with Avocado and Cream Cheese

What do you do with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving? Well,for me I like to make various different dish out of the leftover meat.One of the leftover turkey dish that I like isTurkey Maki or Turkey Roll..Have you ever try turkey sushi? If not you should try,it's taste better then turkey itself on Thanksgiving Day!! Furthermore, turkey meat is healthier and lean..I,myself not a fan of turkey but I do like turkey wrap in sushi style..Hmmm...what should I call this type of food? Should I called it fusion food?

For making su-meshi/ vinegared rice

2 cup calrose rice/sushi rice

4 tbsp mixed sushi vinegar ( store bought)

3/4 cup water ,plus extra if it's old rice

2 tbsp sugar


For 4 Large Rolls-

2 cups turkey meat,sliced or shredded

4 oz -1 box cream cheese (cut strip)

4 sheet seaweed paper/nori

2:You need a nori sheet,place nori sheet stretching from you.Make sure you place the nori dull side facing upwards.

3:Spread the vinegared rice out evenly over the nori sheet .Using one hand to prevent rice spilling over the end of nori,gently press down the rice with fingertips of your other hand.

4:Leave about 2 inch free on the far side,and 3/8 inch free on the side nearest to you.

5:Spread sesame seed,some shredded turkey,cream cheese ,cucumber,tobiko and avocado on the rice on nori sheet facing you in oblong shape.(Add in some mayo or rice at the end to hold all ingredients together in case it's fall apart)
