Rolling...Rolling...Sushi

This is one of the favourites for the lunch box... Rolled Sushi.

Mr H Jr and Miss E can 'chow' down these rolled sushi in record time....There'll be 'no bringing home' or 'can't finish my lunch' excuses!!


For the rice:
  • 1 1/2 cup japanese rice or short grain
  • 40 ml japanese rice vinegar
  • 4 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt.
Cook the rice as per instruction. Add the vinegar, sugar and salt once the rice is cooked. Mix thoroughly. Cover the pot or bowl with dampen cloth..
For filling: anything that takes your fancy... here in my photo - I used smoked salmon. Cut carrots and cucumber into thinly strips. Or you can use smoked tuna (canned). Or teriyaki chicken etc.... Avocado if you wish...
Place the Nori sheet, rough side up on the bamboo mat. Spread the vinegared rice - leaving 1/2 inch uncovered top and bottom. Put the filling of your choice... and start rolling...rolling...rolling
Note: If the rice get too sticky ... just wet your fingers every now and then... (same goes to the knife, when you are cutting the sushi).
