Smoked Salmon & Avocado Sushi with Ginger Mango Salsa

Oh Baby! Sushi is one of my fave meals and we have it on our menu at least every other week for sure. So fresh, so tasty and oh-so-good-for-you!

There are no rules, no recipes, no 'must-do's when it comes to making sushi. I don't think we have ever made the same rolls twice:) But, for those of you who haven't made your own sushi yet, here is a 'recipe' for you to get started.

Sushi Rice- add 1.25 cups of water for every 1 cup of sushi rice and cook according to package.

When cooked, fluff with fork and add a splash of rice wine vinegar and a dash of brown sugar.
