california hand rolls (Or sushi rolls)

Postby Bread-Monster » Fri Sep 14, 2007 5:08 pm

Again, delicious, cold roll things (aren't they magnificent?)

What you'll need:
Something to cook rice in,
Bamboo mat for rolling your rolls.

Main Ingredients:
Arborio or Japanese Rice
Sushi seasoning (or make your own with white wine vinegar, sugar, salt, boil and let it cool)
Seaweed sheets (can be found in your local asian store)

Choice of fillings:
Tuna with mayonaise
Smoked salmon
Egg (I turn the egg into a really thin omelette which I then slice into thin strips)
Avocado
Cucumber
Carrots
Tofu
Those pink ginger things
The yellow pickles
Chicken
Beef,
(Whatever you want, really)

Seasoning:
Sesame seeds,
Wasabi
Soy Sauce

Method:
-Cook your rice (I use a rice cooker to do my bidding, but if you don't have one, cook in a saucepan, follow instructions on the packet)

Once rice is cooked, add yoru sushi seasoning, stir well without breaking the rice, leave to cool for 20 minutes or something.

Lay a towel down on the bench. Put on top of your towel, the bamboo mat, ontop of the mat, a single sheet of seaweed.

Take your rice, using a spoon, spread a layer of rice onto your sheet, leaving 2cms the ends, but make sure you don't neglect the sides.

Put in your fillings (make sure your fillings have been sliced and cut up into thin, long pieces)

Take the end of the seaweed closest to you, holding onto the mat as well, gently roll it over the ingredients (Common sense dictates you do not roll the mat into your ingredients unless you intend to eat it). Keep rolling until you get to the other end, wet the ends with a little bit of water, roll completely over it. Using your mat, roll the sushi roll back and forth til you have a nice round (or square) shape. Whichever you prefer.

Do you have it! too easy.
