Avocado Salmon sushi rolls, where fresh avocado slices are wrapped over the top of a sushi roll filled with raw salmon and cucumber, were invented by a Japanese chef living in Los Angeles around 40 years ago.

Avocado was used for its melt- in-the-mouth texture, which resembles that of tuna (toro).

Philadelphia Sushi roll, also known as ‘inside-out’ roll, has nori (seaweed) wrapped around the fillings and rice facing outwards.

It was an innovation by a Japanese chef living in Little Tokyo in America, as American customers were not used to seeing nori wrapped around food but enjoyed the taste.

It uses cream cheese (Philadelphia cream cheese) as well as fresh salmon and the rice is coated generously with sesame seeds outside.
