Home-made sushi

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pack Japanese sushi rice
150 grams Fresh tuna
150 grams Fresh salmon
12 \N Fresh prawns
2 \N Egg yolks
6 \N Sheets sushi nori seaweed
1 tablespoon White wine vinegar
2 drops Chilli oil
1 \N Red chilli; sliced
4 \N Spring onions; sliced
1 small Tin salmon caviar
\N \N Japanese horseradish and ginger paste
\N \N Bamboo leaves to decorate
1 \N Rolling mat; (for seaweed)

Cook the rice according to the packet instructions. When it's ready, add vinegar and chilli oil and place in the fridge. Beat the egg yolks. Heat a little butter in a frying pan, add the eggs and cook them to form thin pancakes. Leave aside to cool. Put the seaweed on the rolling mat, trim off the edges of the omelette pancakes to form a square and place in the middle of the mat.

Place some rice along one edge of the seaweed, leaving a gap large enough to seal the roll later. Make a well in the rice, and put the tuna in one side and the salmon in the other. Add chilli to the tuna and spring onion to the salmon. Cover the fish with another layer of rice.

Wet the ends of the seaweed and roll the mat over, pushing down into the desired roll shape. Cut this into equal-sized sushi rolls. To decorate, put prawns and spring onions on top of the sushi.

For plain sushi with salmon topping, make the rolls as before but omit the egg and fish inside the rolls. When rolled and cut, add caviar to the top.

Alternatively, use Japanese horseradish or ginger paste on the seaweed covered with rice.

When you have made your sushi rolls, serve them on a plate decorated with spring onions, prawns and bamboo leaves.
