We don’t really follow religious food traditions during lenten season. For those who are not Catholic and Pinoy, I am talking about abstinence from meat. But if you are, don’t worry. I won’t post our carnivorous little feasts. (I’m grateful NZ has taught me to be more culturally sensitive.) Well, at least I have a reason to post long-overdue photos. Like the first time I made sushi.
The kiddo’s been requesting for salmon sushi and I finally gave in. I don’t think I got the squarish shape perfect but that’s fine. Masarap pa din naman Praktis praktis na lang…
1 cup Jasmine rice
2 tbsp Rice wine vinegar
4 tbsp Mirin
1 tbsp Sugar
Cook rice the way you normally cook it with a rice cooker. Immediately after rice is cooked, remove from heat and spread on a plate. Stir in rice vinegar, mirin and sugar. Fluff up with fork and set aside to cool.
Now I’d rather show you a website on how to roll your sushi. Check it out here. I followed the images and instructions but made my sushi squarish rather than round. I served the sushi with a small bowl of shoyu mixed with wasabi. YUM.
