  1. Place a sheet of plastic wrap onto your work surface. Slice cucumber thinly with a vegetable slicer to make 20 thin strips. Place 10 strips horizontally onto the wrap. Then place the remaining strips of cucumber vertically, making a braid pattern.

  2. Place a sheet of nori on top of the braided cucumber. Spread sushi rice on top of the nori sheet, leaving a little space open at the end.

  3. Arrange imitation crab, avocado slices and egg omelette pieces on top.

  4. Roll up tightly and let it rest for a few minutes.

  5. Cut into bite-sized pieces and arrange onto a serving platter. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy with soy sauce.
