Maki Sushi is a roll of rice and filling, delicately surrounded by Nori seaweed.
Ingredients (Serve 2-3)
- 650g steamed Sushi rice
- 2 sheets Nori seaweed
- 20g Sushinoko
- 1 canned tuna (90g)
- 15g mayonnaise
- 50g smoked salmon
- 1 cucumber
- Soy sauce
- To make Sushi rice, mix the Sushinoko with the cooked rice.
- Once you have your Sushi rice prepared, you will need to begin by laying out a preparation area with your Makisu rolling mat.
- Place a sheet of Nori on the Makisu rolling mat and cover two thirds of one side of your Nori seaweed with your Sushi rice approximately 1cm high.
- Add your filling – tuna with mayonnaise and cucumber, or smoked salmon and cucumber in a line on top of the rice in the centre.
- Using the Makisu rolling mat, start rolling up the ingredients away from you, while keeping the roll tight. The moisture from the rice will help it stick together.
- You can then cut your roll into 6 – 8 pieces and serve with some soy sauce and Wasabi.
As it is powdered Sushi vinegar, simply combine Sushinoko with cooked rice for convenient and delicious vinegared rice easily prepared for even 1 person.
Makisu (bamboo mats) is an essential part of making Sushi but can be used in other food preparation to roll up food or to drain excess moisture.
