Some changes between the sushi and the sandwich

Which is the sushi, which is the sandwich?
Can you tell???????*^^*

I know this is not traditional looking!
I love to make the color match
and experiment with little changes.
Also cooking it was a lot of fun.

These will make yummy finger foods at a party.

Ingredients for roll sandwich (serve 4)

4 slices white bread
2 Tbsp cream cheese
150g can tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 small carrot, grated
1/2 capsicum, cut into long strips
1 small avocado, cut into long strips

Trim the crust off the white bread.
Flatten the slices of the bread with a rolling pin.
Spread with cream cheese.
Lay carrot, capsicum, avocado, tuna meat.
Roll up bread, pressing gently to seal.

cut each roll in 3 equal pieces.

for sushi rice (serve 3)
3 cups steamed rice
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
2tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

3 sheets nori(paper-thin dried seaweed)
1/3 cup crab meat(I used instant crab meat), roughly chopped
1/3 cup beetroot pickle, chopped
1/3 cup yellow colored radish pickle, chopped

* You can use shrimp, flying fish roe, pickled ginger...etc.
What ever you like..^^*

 In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, salt and sugar
Mix with rice and vinegar mixture.
Stirring constantly, slowly add vinegar mixture untill incorporated.

Divide the rice into 3 bowls,
mix with 3 ingredients each(pickled radish, pickled beetroot, crab meat)

 Toast nori sheetsin a hot frying pan untill crisp
about 30 seconds each side.

Place nori sheet, shiny side down on dry work surface.
And cover with one bowl from the rice mix.
(Using moistened fingers)
Place a nori sheet on the top, make it level with a rolling pin.
 Spread anather bowl of rice mix.
Cover third nori sheet and make it level with the rolling pin. and so on....

 Trim edges with a wet and sharp knife.
 cover with foil, let it stand few minutes.
Slice crosswise, serve whith wasabi soy sauce.

I can tell your kids will love them.*^^*
