Lady Tiger Roll - Sushi

30 mins (prep 30)
9 ingredients
1 servings
My FAVORITE. I love sushi but all Japanese restaurants in my area charge outrageous prices, so I learned to make my own in a fun, easy way that only costs about $3.00 a roll (even when buying pre-cooked ingredients.) This recipe makes about 6 big pieces, which always fill me up. If you need more of a meal, try adding a teriyaki chicken appetizer.
