#1 California Roll
California roll is always a favorite of mine. The recipe ingredients inside this roll are Rice, cucumber, cooked crab meat, and avocado. I first had this roll when I visited some amazing San Diego Sushi Restaurants.
All of those are safe ingredients for any pregnant woman to indulge in. Then you can top it with my eel sauce and toasted sesame seeds as well as some sliced green onions for a delicious bite of sushi.
#2 Tempura (Fried Rolls)
The tempura batter rolls are always so good. We have made them with crab and with chicken. You can use avocado, cream cheese, asparagus and more. The possibilities are endless. You can check out my recipe here.
#3 Spicy Crab Roll
The Spicy Crab sushi roll is a fantastic recipe for people who are just starting to learn how to roll sushi at home. It’s simple to work with, simple to make, and simply satisfying.
This is very easy to make. You can use my sushi rice recipe here and also buy crab in the deli that is already cooked. From that point, it's just about rolling it all together and then enjoying it.
If you need help finding a sushi rice cooker, this post will help you pick the perfect one. You can still make your rice on the stove, but a rice cooker always helps.
#4 Veggie Sushi Rolls
Veggie sushi rolls are chocked full of things like carrots, avocado, cucumbers, and topped with soy sauce and pickled ginger. These are so delicious and super easy to make as well.

#5 Dragon Roll
Dragon rolls have to be some of the prettiest sushi rolls I have ever seen. It starts with a base of a crunchy fried tempura shrimp that is wrapped with sushi rice and nori and then topped with slivered avocados and black sesame seeds.
Then when you dip it into my delicious eel sauce, your sushi button will be super duper happy!
