The California roll is also called the California maki. It is a makizushi sushi roll which means it is made using a bamboo mat; the ingredients are rolled into a cylindrical piece. Typically, makizushi style sushi wraps the sushi in nori (seaweed); but it is also wrapped in omelet, cucumber, soy paper, or shisho leaves. California rolls feature cucumber, imitation crab meat, or crab meat. It is one of the most popular sushi rolls found in the United States and has recently achieved global popularity.

Health Benefits

Sushi is an iconic element of the traditional Japanese diet which is typically praised for its health profile. This is largely in part due to fish and seafood being a staple of the diet. Fish is a great source of high-quality protein that is lean and low in fat. It is low in cholesterol and saturated fats and is high in omega-3 fatty acids. This wonderful combo works to lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, and decrease heart disease.
