Sushi

  • Gluten Free Diet

    Excludes foods containing gluten, such as wheat, barley, rye and their by-products.

  • Nuts Free Diet

    It is usually followed when someone is allergic to nuts.

  • Low in Sugars Diet

    Limits all sources of added sugars and encourages the reduction of high-carbohydrate (high glycemic index) foods. A claim that a food can be classified as LS can be made when it contains less than 5 gr of sugars per 100 gr of solid food or 2.5 gr of sugars per 100 ml of liquid food.

Method

  • Place a pot full of water over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Fill a large bowl with cold water and place a strainer in it.
  • Add the rice and wash well for 2-3 minutes to remove all of the starch. The water should turn white.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the rice vinegar, sugar, water and mirin. Mix with a spoon.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place over the pot of boiling water, creating a bain marie.
  • Cook for 30-35 minutes.

To assemble

  • Mix the rice with a spoon.
  • Wrap the sushi mat with plastic wrap for hygiene.
  • You can make 3 types of sushi with these ingredients.

For the salmon avocado sushi

  • Lay a sheet of nori seaweed on the sushi mat.
  • Use your hands to cover the whole surface of the nori with a layer of rice, leaving a 1 cm border on one side so that it can be rolled.
  • Cut the thinner part of the salmon, which is fattier, into 0.5 cm strips. Add over the rice.
  • Cut a small piece of avocado, remove the skin and cut into 0.5 cm strips. Add over the salmon.
  • Let the sushi mat help you roll your sushi!
  • Add some soy sauce to the edge of the nori so that it can stick together.
  • Cut off the edges with a knife and then cut sushi into 6 even sized pieces.

For the spicy tuna sushi

  • Lay a sheet of nori seaweed on the sushi mat.
  • Use your hands to cover the whole surface of the nori with a layer of rice, leaving a 1 cm border on one side so that it can be rolled.
  • Spread ½ teaspoon of wasabi paste over the rice, along the longer side.
  • Slice off a small piece of the tuna and cut in to 0.5 cm strips.
  • Place it in the middle of the nori, along the larger side, over the wasabi paste.
  • Cut up 1/3 of the cucumber into 1 cm strips and use a knife to remove the part with the seeds.  Place over the tuna.
  • Wrap and follow the same process as before.

For the California sushi

  • Pull apart the surimi with your hands so that thin strips are created and add to a bowl.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of mayonnaise and mix with a spoon.
  • To the rice, add 1 tablespoon of white sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds and mix. 
  • Lay a sheet of nori on the sushi mat. Use your hands to cover the whole surface of the nori with a layer of rice. Flip it over so that the rice is on the bottom. When it is rolled, the rice will be on the outer side.
  • Follow the same process as before to make the sushi but it might need a little more care since the rice will be on the outer side.
  • Add any remaining surimi over the top.
  • Serve with wasabi paste, soy sauce and ginger.
