Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Avocado — Choose ripe avocados that are slightly soft when gently squeezed. To prevent browning, drizzle the avocado slices with lime or lemon juice.
  • Mango — Select a ripe mango with a sweet aroma and slightly soft flesh. Peel the mango and slice it thinly for easy rolling.
  • Black beans — Cook the black beans until they are soft and easily mashed. Season them with salt and spices to enhance their flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • To prevent the sushi rice from sticking to your hands, wet them with water or vinegar before handling.
  • Experiment with different fillings such as grilled shrimp, plantains, or pickled jalapenos to add a Latin American twist.
  • Use a sharp knife to slice the sushi rolls for clean and neat cuts.
  • Serve the sushi rolls with additional Latin American condiments like salsa or guacamole for extra flavor.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add more Latin American hot sauce to the dipping sauce.

Serving advice

Arrange the Latin American Sushi Rolls on a platter and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves for an appealing presentation. Serve them with the dipping sauce on the side. These rolls are perfect as an appetizer or a light meal.

Presentation advice

To enhance the visual appeal, arrange the sushi rolls in a colorful pattern on the platter. Use a mix of different fish slices and vibrant fillings like avocado and mango to create an eye-catching display. Sprinkle some sesame seeds or chili flakes on top for an added touch of elegance.
