1 cup cooked white rice or sushi rice
5 oz salmon
½ each cucumber and carrot
2 oz avocado
Sesame seeds (optional)
Soy sauce (optional)

QUICK PICKLED CARROTS OR CUCUMBER
1 and 1/2 cups matchstick carrots
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar (or less)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
HOW TO MAKE IT
In medium saucepan, bring white vinegar, rice vinegar, water, sugar and salt to a boil. (This is your brine.)
While the brine is heating, place carrots in a 1-pint mason jar or bowl.
When the brine has come to a boil, carefully pour over the carrots, leaving about an inch of space at the top of the jar.
Let the jar cool to room temperature, and then place the lid on and stick it in the fridge.
Quick pickled carrots can be eaten immediately, but the flavor improves with a few hours in the fridge.
Use within 2 weeks.
