Tried and Tested: Sushi!

I looove Sushi!

Not the worst diet food either if you go easy on the salt and sugar...

Here is my version of California roll:

Boil 2 cups of sushi rice (or other types of short grain rice) in
2 1/4 cups of water
Let it cool so you can touch it and stir in to the cooked rice

  • 2 tbs of sugar (I used Splenda)

  • 1 tbs of salt

  • 3 tbs of rice vinegar
(I have been known to use other types of vinegar if I am out of rice vinegar)

Spread the rice on a plate and let cool completely

In the meantime, chop up your filling.

I use

  • smoked salmon

  • avacado

  • cucumber

  • leek

  • carrot

  • peppers
  • but use your imagination: shrimp/boiled eggs/crab meat/crab sticks etc etc.
Spread the cooled rice on 2/3 of a nori seaweed sheet
Put the filling along the middle (add some wasabi paste if you like it hot) 
and roll firmly.
A tip is to have some water in a glass to wet your hands to make the seaweed stick better at the end

Leave the roll to rest while you do the next rolls
Cut the rolls in slices, about 1-2 cm thick

Serve with soy sauce, wasabi paste and pickled ginger, if you like.
