Inside out sushi (or Uramaki ) is similar to “maki sushi”, except that the rice is on the outside of the nori, and it is usually prepared with more than two fillings – for example salmon, cucumber and, what seems to be a slice of pineapple. It is sometimes topped with a thin slice of fish, seafood or vegetable like avocado or sweet potato. For instructions how to make it, see our full guide on: ” how to make inside out sushi maki ”
