Sushi – but nothing raw

by soffiagudrun

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.

Egg sushi

  • Omelette
  • Sushi rice, boiled
  • Spring onion

Omelette:

  • 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.
