To assemble the summer rolls:

Working on the bottom third of the rice paper wrapper, spread a bit of sushi rice and cucumber down. Swish the wasabi mayo over the sushi rice.
Then top with the avocado & finally the tuna poke.
Give everything a little squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Next, fold up the sides and bottom edge to cover. Roll it tightly and continue this with the remaining ingredients.
Slice the summer rolls in half and place them on a platter with a dipping bowl of soy sauce.
Scatter them with extra Cape Herb and Spice Poke Seasoning and enjoy.
*To make sushi rice:
Rinse 2 cups of sushi rice in a mesh sieve under cold running water. Rinse well until water runs clear. Strain rice into a medium pot with 2 cups of clean cold water.
Leave the rice to soak for 30 minutes.
Then bring the rice to a boil and immediately turn heat to as low as it can go, and cover.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Switch off the heat and leave covered for 15 minutes.
In a small saucepan, dissolve 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt and ½ cup rice vinegar over low heat. Pour over the rice and mix gently with a wooden spoon.
Spread out onto a baking tray to cool.
This recipe makes 6 cups of sushi rice.
