Sushi!!

 

So I embarked myself into make sushi! It turned out to be very easy to make. I decided to make a vegetarian option with just fresh vegetables, carrots, jicama, cucumber, radishes and a hint of fresh ginger. The other option I made it with shrimp and avocado. I also used brown rice! Well, I had two judges (two of my children) and they loved them, so that means they were great!!

SUSHI 

Ingredients

Serves 8 rolls (8 pieces each)

1 Cup brown basmati rice

8 Sushi Nori sheets

10 Shrimp cooked and cut in half longwise

1/2 Avocado

1/2 Cucumber

3 Radishes

1 carrot

2 Inches of fresh ginger

 

Directions

  • Cook rice according to package instructions
  • Prepare your vegetables, cut them Juliane style
  • Grate the ginger

  • Assemble, lay a nori sheet shiny side down over a sushi mat
  • Take about 1/2 cup of cooked rice and gently press it over the nori covering it, leave the far end uncovered, about 1 inch

  • Place the filling from side to side over the rice bed

 

  • Roll the mat holding the filling and gently pressing, rasing the mat so it doesn’t roll into the sushi, keep rolling and pressing until all the nori is rolled up
  • Let the roll rest for a minute or two before cutting

  • Lightly moisten the knife before each cut.
  • Each roll makes eight pieces

 

Enjoy with some soy sauce and if you like heat you may add some siracha to your soy sauce as well as some lime juice.
