My husband wants sushi and I also want some.
So, sushi is the today’s lunch menu.
I want to try something new. I will add some wasabi in the sushi vinegar before adding to the rice.
When I went out for sushi, I always had some pickled ginger after a bite of sushi, so I am going to pickle some ginger finely julienned and put it in the rolls.
Wish me luck!!?
PS: By the way, about the title, just feel like to be silly today. ?
- 2 cups cooked rice
- Sushi seasoning
- Nori wrap
- 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 piece ginger (about a thumb size), finely julienned
- 2 small cucumbers
Salmon, octopus, Tobiko
Julienne the ginger very finely. Put into a bowl. Rinse with water until the water comes out clear. The water will take away the bitterness and the heat from the ginger. Drain well. Put vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl. Mix well and put the drained ginger in. Set aside for about 1 hour.
Cut salmon into long strips. Cut cucumbers also into strips.
In a mixing bowl, put the rice in. Mix some wasabi with 1 1/2 Tbsp of sushi seasoning. Mix well with rice.
On a sushi mat, put nori sheet on, shiny side up. Spread some rice evenly on the nori sheet. Put one piece of salmon, some cucumbers, some pickled ginger and make one roll.
Repeat the same step with Tobiko.
Cut the ends off the rolls. Cut into 6 pieces. Arrange on serving plate. Slice the octopus into thin slices. Arrange octopus pieces around the plate.
I should have put more wasabi in the sushi seasoning. The wasabi taste was too subtle. And should have made and should have put more pickled ginger in the rolls. The sushi tasted good but needed more wasabi and pickled ginger.
