Sushi – but nothing raw
I know of many people who don´t eat sushi because they don´t like eating raw food, and of course pregnant women don´t eat sushi because of the raw food. But you can mke sushi without the raw stuff. For example, cucumber, avocado and spring onion is a great combo.
Then I can recommend the omelette on a bed of rice, tied with a string of spring onion.
- Sushi rice, boiled
- Spring onion
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon Mirin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
- Oil for the pan
Put all the ingredients in a bowl. Stir together with a fork until it becomes light and fluffy but not foamy.
Heat some oil on a teflon pan. Pour the egg mixture to the pan. We want the omelette to be about 2 cm thick.
Pour the egg mix to the pan and cook on medium heat, both sides.
Cut it into little squares, about 2 x 3 cm.
After the rice are boiled and have cooled, make a bed of rice, as if you were making rice for nigirizushi. Put the omelette squares on top and tie it together with a string of spring onion.
Serve with pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce.
What I love is to add a little bit of Mirin to the rice when you are boiling them.
I use spring onion a lot with sushi, it´s great for making a nice presentation.
Use your imagination and bring your own touch to the Japanese cooking.
