Spicy Mayonnaise (recipe, this page):
Place rice in bowl; add 1 cup cold water. Mix until water becomes cloudy; drain. Repeat until water runs clear; drain again. In saucepan, combine rice and 1 cup cold water. Cover and bring to boil; reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is tender and water is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat; cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together vinegar, sugar and salt until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over rice; mix with spatula until well combined. Spread onto baking sheet; let cool. (Make-ahead: Can be refrigerated overnight.)
Fill large bowl with hot water. Soak one sheet of rice paper in hot water just until pliable; lay on damp tea towel. Place 1 lettuce leaf in centre of rice paper. Spread 1/3 cup of rice in thin layer over lettuce; sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of the sesame seeds. Add one quarter each of the salmon, avocado and cucumber. Fold ends of rice paper over filling and roll up gently, squeezing tightly. Working one at a time, repeat with remaining ingredients.
Place rolls on damp tea towel-lined baking sheet; cover with another damp tea towel. To serve, using wet knife, cut each roll into 6 equal portions. Serve rolls with Spicy Mayonnaise, and pickled ginger, soy sauce and wasabi (if using).
In small bowl, combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar, 1/2 tbsp liquid honey, 1 tsp sriracha and 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil. (Make-ahead: Can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.) Makes 1/2 cup.
