Cucumber Sushi Roll Recipe – Japanese Food Recipe

Welcome back to my channel, in this week’s
episode I’m going to show you how to make a Cucumber Roll.
What you need to slice cucumber? Is a piece of cucumber, some water, and a
knife. The water is to lubricate the knife so that as you’re cutting the cucumber then
it allows you to slide through instead of not getting bogged down. Now what I’ve done
here is I have already taken the skin off of the cucumber with a cheese knife.
Cutting the cucumber. Keep the blade wet and then just simply move
into it with the knife, and you want to keep an eye on the blade, you can just see it through
the cucumber, so you want to keep it so it’s not too thick and not too thin. If you lift
up the blade like so then you dig deeper into the cucumber making the slices thicker. Now
when you move the blade down like so you will actually come more to the surface and you’ll
cut thinner slices. The right thickness would be about a quarter centimeter which is a tenth
of an inch. Once in a while just take the blade out of
the cucumber, wet it again so that you have more lubrication and then just continue cutting.
I am not using pressure here, just let the knife do the work and you just guide the cucumber,
now between cuts you push it up and then when you cut you bring it down, so you’re always
cutting in one direction. This gives you a lot of control, if you start sawing both ways
in cutting then you’re going to miscalculate and slip up.
Now this does take a little bit of practice and don’t worry too much, just buy a bunch
of cucumbers, try it out, I mean these things are pretty cheap anyway.
Okay now you start getting towards the seeds is when you stop, so there we go.
Cutting some Tuna slices. Alright so now we just roll this up and put
it to one side for later, take a little piece of tuna. With cutting the tuna just simply
put the heel at the corner of the fish, so you want to end the cut with the tip on the
board. It should be one fluid motion, not too thin, you want it quite thick, about a
quarter centimeter to a half centimeter which is one tenth of an inch to one fifth of an
inch. Rolling the Sushi Roll.
Start at one end and you just cover about one third of your sheet of cucumber, okay,
and that should more or less do. Now you add your avocado, a couple slices should do, don’t
overdo it. And a little dab of wasabi. Now you begin rolling, no need for anything
like a rolling mat, simply try to keep it compressed and keep rolling. When you start
to reach the end — now here you could add some mayo or some mascarpone cheese, anything
that will keep it stuck together. It doesn’t need to be that, it could be also yogurt if
you want, keep it healthy. Just something to make sure that it sort of stays together
otherwise it might unwrap easily. Okay, so there we go, and now cutting it, you want
to keep the seal on the bottom and simply just cut the ends off.
Now these are the throw away, throw away. And you just simply want to cut the slices,
pretty thin, about one centimeter, that’s two fifths of an inch —
and that is your cucumber roll.
How to plate the Sushi Roll. Simply place your cucumber rolls on the plate
— there we go, okay. Now your Daikon which is placed here in the middle, a little bit
of carrots just to give it some color and a couple little greens. Now you add some Salmon
Roe, be quite generous. There we go, beautiful salmon eggs. And to finish it off, place a
little bit of soy sauce on the plate. And that’s the cucumber roll done.

    Btw, I really like the look of this dish. I don't care if this look like too much of soy sauce. I'm Asian and I like the taste of soy sauce a lot 🙂

  2. diacetylmorphin Posted on November 8, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    What kind of Chopping-Board do you use?

  3. piranai Posted on November 14, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    why throw the ends away Oo just eat them!

  4. TheAwesomeGamer Posted on December 7, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    i usually eat the pieces you're supposed to throw away

  5. GiveItToFATHER GOD. Posted on December 9, 2013 at 4:34 am

    this salad looks D-Lish! the 1st i've seen that was this Fancy and Exotically appetizing. Nice

  6. Lilymathebeauty Posted on January 20, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    don throw it away….throw to ur month then.

  7. Brian Merritt Posted on February 16, 2014 at 3:00 am

    That's a lot of soy sauce.

  8. Jennavecia Sala Posted on March 3, 2014 at 12:17 pm

    i couldn't hear- what's that white stuff in center? i try repeat and still don't hear ! thanks for ideas-

  9. Jacqueline Woo Posted on March 11, 2014 at 5:29 am

    what a waste…

  10. Davalin Parker Posted on March 13, 2014 at 8:36 pm

    I enjoy your videos very much, but I cringe every time I hear you say throw something away, maybe you could work on that. 🙁 I do realize for plaiting purpose's they can not be used. It is just hard to hear of food being thrown away when people are starving. But on a whole your videos are a great teaching source. Thank you. 

  11. Rafael Mendoza Posted on March 19, 2014 at 7:43 am

    Iam a chef i don't throw food away

  12. Joseph Lau Posted on March 19, 2014 at 1:35 pm

    Your rolling cut technique can use a considerable amount of improvement. Nonetheless, thanks for sharing.

  13. Jacqueline Cheng Posted on March 27, 2014 at 9:25 am

    Before considering yourself a chef, I think you should learn to see the importance of food first. You can't just throw away food even if they're just trimmings. You could eat them yourself, you know. I mean this isn't even in a restaurant setting so eating the trimmings is perfectly fine. And that's a lot of soy sauce you're wasting, by the way. It just makes me wonder if you also threw away the center of the cucumber after slicing it for the sushi skin. Really, what a waste.

  14. MihaelaV68 Posted on April 17, 2014 at 2:24 am

    OMG , I wish to learn how to cut cucumber like that! Great video!

  15. Melonee Tran Posted on April 27, 2014 at 6:19 am

    That was a lot of soy sauce

  16. ThieNoii Posted on May 4, 2014 at 10:15 am

    That tuna look black as fcuk

  17. Bob Bobson Posted on May 16, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    That's not "a little bit of soy sauce."

  18. Christopher Savage Posted on May 28, 2014 at 2:54 am

    be honest… how many cucumbers did you go through making this vid?

  19. RassBrass Posted on June 1, 2014 at 6:09 pm

    I was just thinking. When the tuna goes extinct, could you replace it with beets and make cucumber beet rolls?

  20. sheik da slayer Posted on June 2, 2014 at 6:31 am


  21. Morgan Sudduth Posted on June 17, 2014 at 12:11 am

    Can you make a video where you make a roll using only rice and other stuff, no nori?

  22. guguigugu Posted on June 17, 2014 at 11:03 pm

    i'd probably sever my fingers trying that…

  23. RelatedGiraffe Posted on June 19, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Wow, really nice idea! Have to try that now my knife is sharp again. But that sea of soy sauce seemed a bit overwhelming.

  24. Layla Posted on June 27, 2014 at 7:56 am

    I like watching your videos, and I admire your technique and skill, but a few things in this video don't sit well with me. Won't all of that soy sauce that you poured all over your sushi make it incredibly salty? Also, it would be a shame if all of the excess on the ends of the roll goes to waste…do you really throw it away? O_O I was like, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY?????????" Anyway, your video has made me very hungry, and I now have the need to snack on some roasted nori. 🙂 By the way, great job cutting that cucumber; it must have been difficult to learn how to do that just right. 

  25. Mominaodiji Posted on August 1, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Guys, he's joking when he says to throw it away. That's why he emphasized it so much and said it in that way and laughed. In all his videos he gets comments about him "throwing them away". He doesn't though as in some videos you can see him sneak a piece in his mouth and now he explicitly tells you that it goes into the chef's stomach

  26. Ibrar Posted on December 21, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    Sushi is Quality Art

  27. macyeats Posted on January 15, 2015 at 4:29 am

    that is so much soy sauce

  28. jason bourne Posted on January 18, 2015 at 9:39 pm

    U say just simply ways to much

  29. Leanarda Andrade Posted on February 18, 2015 at 4:52 pm

    Where did u get ur fish from???

  30. Chico Chiwawa Posted on February 24, 2015 at 3:57 am

    I just back on my diet last week. Sushi rice has a lots of sugar and fat. This helping my diet thank you !

  31. rnbdanny Posted on March 18, 2015 at 10:02 pm

  32. YUMMAEH1 Posted on March 24, 2015 at 8:03 am

    Wow this is my first time seeing this technique. Awesome job

  33. Zatoichi444 Posted on March 31, 2015 at 9:05 pm

    Nice knife!  Now that's a real one!

  34. ArcticAstrophysics Posted on April 3, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    seems like a lot of soy sauce but idk anything about making sushi

  35. BloodyxLuv Posted on April 7, 2015 at 3:00 am

    Your accent is lovely, but I can't quite pinpoint it. Where's it from?

  36. Obviosity Posted on April 27, 2015 at 5:32 am

    He looks like a porn star lol

  37. Ghoulie Ghost Posted on May 11, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    He forgot the rice and put fish in it and then I was mad because that's not how I like it.

  38. B O'R Posted on June 19, 2015 at 9:03 pm

    Throwaway= "Chef's cut"    🙂

  39. Adam Li Posted on July 8, 2015 at 3:02 pm

    practice more please

  40. Arries David Posted on July 16, 2015 at 4:21 am

    And to finish it off…add a li'l bit of soy sauce! XD

  41. Shelby Shum Posted on July 19, 2015 at 3:17 am

    I think our definition for little soy sauce.. may vary.. greatly.

  42. Ellen O'Rourke Posted on August 2, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you for making this clear and interesting!

  43. Hana Ko Posted on August 14, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    Enjoyed the video, fun idea for entertaining.  The light hearted comments made me smile, a lot.  Fun crowd for the most part.

  44. Justin Brown Posted on August 19, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Why did you pour half a gallon of soy sauce for 4 pieces?

  45. ImperiousViking Posted on September 16, 2015 at 11:32 am

    Holy shit, thats a lot of soy sauce

  46. Sushi Chef Seven Posted on October 15, 2015 at 6:23 am

    We use same knife,haha,see my video

  47. elisha ellis Posted on October 23, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    can I use smoked sausage and slices of tomato instead of tuna and avocado?

  48. Glenn Kievit Posted on November 23, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    im gonna make this a little differently with salmon instead of tuna

  49. Boziltio Pineapple Posted on December 28, 2015 at 6:32 am

    i'm mad how he says a little soy sauce then he floods it o.o

  50. Uncle Buzz Posted on January 5, 2016 at 10:07 am

    soy sauce huhuhu……..

  51. Charlie Holloway Posted on January 11, 2016 at 5:00 am

    Hey I was wondering if there are other things that can be used for this as I dont eat tuna or avacado so I was thinking salmon and rice maybe?

  52. Travis Hunter Posted on January 15, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    +How To Make Sushi what was the white shredded vegetable you placed in the centre of the plate?

  53. NkoLyn Posted on January 19, 2016 at 1:17 am

    I think it's chef's principle business that manufacturer and sell the soy sauce.

  54. PowPow Posted on February 6, 2016 at 7:29 am

    this guy very slow…but if u do don't need to freakin dip ur knife in water…the cucumber is already super wet…u just need a very sharp knife to do it easier but he teaches wrong and i do this in like 15 secs

  55. Mad Rabbit Posted on March 17, 2016 at 6:04 pm

    Dislike cucumber sushi = No life

  56. Mugduhlena Kuzluwskae Posted on April 6, 2016 at 8:54 am

    whaaaat wjy would you drown good tuna in that much soy sauce??

  57. Aeris Deleon Posted on April 7, 2016 at 3:38 am

    "A little" drowns in soysauce

  58. Thomas Wong Posted on April 10, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    soya sauce soup with cucumber garnish

  59. 0000000Lara Posted on April 19, 2016 at 2:34 pm

    everything was perfect until it overdosed on soy sauce!

  60. step4560 Posted on May 26, 2016 at 2:11 am

    The two ends "throw away" REALLY? what a waste! Get a decent plate or board, put all the pieces on it, stick on some daikon, wasabi and ginger and hands off that Soy Sauce bottle. Shesh! Great vid otherwise, Thanx…

  61. Brent Spear Posted on June 18, 2016 at 1:07 am

    And now we pour the milk on the cereal … oh crap, this is soy sauce … and that's sushi. ruined

  62. matanuska high Posted on September 25, 2016 at 8:35 am

    Wait. You just eat them raw without baking or frying?

  65. lyle kishida Posted on October 19, 2016 at 10:21 am

  66. Bobby Slater Posted on October 23, 2016 at 3:18 pm

  67. tom165983 Posted on October 26, 2016 at 1:34 am

    Well done! You Definately made a mistake with putting too much soy sauce lol but atleast u know better now. mistakes happen. Looks wonderful anyway! Thanks for your time in teaching us man

  70. Andi Amador Posted on March 5, 2017 at 6:32 pm

    Throw the ends away? A 'little bit' of soy sauce?

  71. ProgramThis! Posted on April 1, 2017 at 3:33 am

    nice omega seamaster 😀

  72. Elena Chapman Posted on April 2, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    I love all the different combinations that can be made- and I especially love to show off my creations to my family and friends. Thank you for the videos! 🍣💕

  73. Jim Cole Posted on May 7, 2017 at 7:43 pm

    Cut the ends and eat not toss jackass. Then cut the roll in half then stack together then cut them both in half. Way easier. Cucumbers are already wet don't need water. Good knife skills.

  74. Autistic Burrito Posted on June 6, 2017 at 7:31 pm

    Nigga i ain't throwing nothing ill eat ot ALL

  75. SynthPea • Posted on June 24, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    I struggle with keeping the cucumber sheets or whatever long they always break off :/

  76. Kate Posted on July 21, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    Thats a pretty knife

  77. Jon Prete Posted on August 28, 2017 at 7:12 am

    Panzu sauce would be better

  78. Anita Gomez Posted on September 9, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    I thought soy sauce is barley used in sushi its usually one small dip with no shake and then eat it ?? Maybe it taste better covered in soy sauce idk but it seems like the point is to taste the sushi not hide it

  79. June Passingthroughthegate Posted on October 12, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    That's quite a LOT of soy sauce though. Lol.

  80. Dave Scheer Posted on November 9, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    At our house the ends of the rolls are called chef cuts,unless it's used in presentation those can be used in a salad or rice paper wrap . 🍣. Any ideas on sushi fruit or desert rolls ?

  81. Andy Grigg Posted on December 28, 2017 at 7:07 pm

    This guy doesn't point his finger on the blade, and i hope thats some seriously low sodium soy sauce

  82. Hijab my choice Posted on January 4, 2018 at 2:06 am

    😂😂about the soy sauce.WOW.…..

  83. l b Posted on March 2, 2018 at 3:02 pm

  87. deepbigeyes Posted on July 18, 2018 at 10:32 pm
