I do these in like one take as fast as I can, imagine if I took my time and was concerned with neatness? You can add avocado, cucumber, scallions, carrots there is no limit and on the inside out rolls you can sprinkle seasoned salts or toasted white or black sesame seeds on the rice or use fish roe for a nice orange color and flavor/texture burst, have fun and experiment. Cook the salmon if you want, just enjoy. Look back I have made this before.
There is more than just rolls...this style with the fish on top is called Nigiri. The rolls are called Maki. There are three items that I know of that are not raw, the tamago-yaki or omelette, the ebi or shrimp (but not the ama ebi, the sweet shrimp) and the unagi or anago or fresh or saltwater eel - I usually recommend these to people who are squeamish.
I like fat salmon....its the GRIZZLY in me... you put me near raw salmon and I eaT IT!
