Then on the top they put a slice of the avocado and that looks like dragon. Alright, I have half sheet of nori. I wet my hand and spread the rice on the sea weed, make sure you cover each corner and each edge over the nori. OK. Flip over. Shrimp. So, make sure your tail is outside over the edge so that when you roll and cut it, you see the tail. Now I am going to pick up the bamboo and over the sea weeds and goes with the ingredients. Shove everything inside and then roll. OK. Now after you roll the shrimp and cucumber roll and you put the slice of the avocado on the top and spread it and that looks like the scale of the dragon. Now use your bamboo matt, lightly press down so that it sticks to the roll and that is your dragon roll. Now we are ready to cut the dragon rolls.
