Recipe Tips:

Read the Yuzu Chicken and Sushi Bento Box recipe fully a couple of times before starting to familiarise yourself with the steps.
For the crystal rolls, you need only dip them in warm water for a few seconds. They will soften further while you add the other ingredients and will be ready to roll up after filling.
For the sushi rolls, have all your sliced ingredients ready to go and nearby to make assembly easier.
Also, have a bowl of water to dip your hands into to help spread the rice onto the nori.
Use your sharpest knife to cut the rolls.
Take out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving so it is not too cold.

And remember, have fun!

As a note, remember to always source sushi-grade fish that you are planning on eating as sashimi. Talk to your local fishmonger or look out for websites that offer to deliver fresh fish straight to your door.
