  3. Next, flip the nori to the other side and add the tempura shrimp, avocado slices and cucumbers horizontally. Roll the sushi tightly with the sushi mat.
  4. Transfer the sushi roll to a cutting board. Wet a sharp knife with cold water and cut each sushi roll into 8 equal portions. Drizzle some unagi sushi sauce over the top. Serve with a soy sauce and lemon or mayo dip on the side.
