  5. Extend the rice with wet hands, covering two thirds of the seaweed.
  6. Place the ingredients of each type of sushi:
    • White Tuna sushi: Spread the olive pâté; add two rows of gherkins; in the centre of the two rows of gherkins put the White Tuna.
    • Cantabrian Anchovy sushi: Place one row of mini cucumbers, another with the peeled carrot cut lengthwise, and between the two, place the anchovy fillets, also lengthwise.
    • Mussel sushi.Place a row of chopped avocado, another row with the beetroot, also chopped, and between the two, a row of mussels.
  7. Roll the seaweed with the help of the mat and wet the end of the seaweed with some water so that it sticks.

  9. Place on a tray and accompany with soya sauce or wasabi.
