4 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Soak rice in cold water for 1 hour. During this time, heat up rice vinegar, sugar and salt until sugar is dissolved. Leave to cool. Leave the rice to rest in the sieve for 30 minutes so it can swell.

1 nori sheet
500g (17.6 oz.) fresh salmon, skin-less and bone-less
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 large cucumber
1 avocado
4 tablespoons sesame seeds

Wash the salmon under running water and carefully dab dry with kitchen roll. Cut it in small dices and mix with sesame seeds and avocado oil. Keep in the fridge until we use it.

Peel the cucumber and using a mandolin or a knife, slice it not too thinly. Peel the avocado and cut into slices. In the nori sheet, cut a piece the same size as your springform pan and place it at the bottom. Wet your hands, so the rice will not stick on them, and spread half of the rice, push down firmly. Cover with slices of cucumber and avocado. End up with salmon. Repeat once again the entire process, keep in fridge until ready to serve.

Garnish with radish sprouts soya bean sprout.
