If you're looking for a combination of both easy and delicious then I would think that a spicy tuna filling would be the best choice. Just google for different recipes and choose the one that you like best.

I like the spicy tuna ones also
but CA rolls are my favorite. Cheap too since you
can use "fake" crab.

I would also say a spicy tuna roll - maybe with some cucumber strips, avocado strips, or even some cream cheese strips. The sashimi grade tuna is ready to eat, the sauce gives it a kick - you don't even need wasabi. That's probably the most simple one and one of the best without getting into the fussy stuff.

i usually make veggie sushi rolls with cucumber, avocado, a little bit of shredded diakon, and a piece of lettuce ( i like the texture of butter lettuce in sushi rolls). asparagus is good, too. veggies are easy for me because i always have them on hand, while i have to go out of my way to buy sushi grade fish.

lol, one time i was making sushi rolls for a party and i got a bit creative and made them with leftover curried spinach rolled up in saffron rice... it wasnt bad!

HA - When I was in New York the sushi chef asked if he could make me something special - I said sure!!! It was sooooooo good - it was a crunchy tuna roll with this wonderful curry sauce in it - it was THE best thing!!!!! So I imagine your curry spinach roll was good too!

I agree tuna rolls are the easiest, bit of canned tuna, slices of avocado and a butter lettuce leaf and its done.

Mushrooms are another easy one to do, slice them into baton/matchsticks or even chop them finely and fry them in whatever you like. Teriyaki works really well with mushrooms (and chicken, and beef, and...).

Actually I'm talking about sashimi grade tuna - not canned. It's pretty available around here. When I have sushi I need my "raw fish fix" - I'm like a wild animal!!!

<---- Poor uni student.

And while fresh tuna (or salmon) sushi is delicious, some of us have to comprimise :P. Plus I find that the canned tuna sushi roll is the 'beginners' sushi.

That is, people who think sushi is just raw fish, they start out with the tuna roll and then theres no going back. It is the gateway drug of sushi!

Ah yes - and I also love to make tempura shrimp rolls for any beginner - they are immediate lovers!!!!! "Gateway drug to sushi" to is appropriate - once you get people to try it with something not raw they are hooked - love that phrase!!!!

It's also good with grilled tempeh (a protein source for vegetarians) and brown rice - dipped in a peanut sauce AND a soy sauce - quite good!!!!
