Sushi!

See, the cool thing about sushi is that you can roll pretty much anything in a handfull of rice and still call it sushi. Here’s my pick of the day:

Ingredients:

For the sushi:

  • 3 cups sushi rice, refrigerated
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/4 avocado
  • a handfull of watercress sprouts
  • 1 slice of smoked trout fillet
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds

Sauce:

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp wasabi paste
  • fresh ginger, grated ( or if you prefer, pickled )

Star by julienning the carrot, cucumber and avocado. Take a piece of foil if you don’t have a rolling mat on your hands. Grease the foil lightly. Moisten your hands and pat down the rice on the foil. Form a rectangle about 1 cm thick. Arrange the veggies and the fish and start rolling making sure the filling stays in the center. Let sit for a few minutes. Unwrap and roll in sesame seeds. Slice the sushi with a sharp, wet knife.

To make the sauce, combine all ingredients… and start dipping…

I just went over to Ajme koliko nas je! to check what my fellow bloggers are up to and found out that this month’s theme ingredient is rice! Well, isn’t that convenient!  Thank you Cosmo for reading my mind!
