Japan is coming to your mouth! (part two : The recipe)

Here is the recipe fellas! enjoy and feel free to comment!

Rice :

400g of Japanese rice

80 mL of sushi vinegar

1- The first step is washing the Japanese rice (400g) to avoid some residues, it is the most tedious step… but keep motivated it will be really well paid.

Measure out the rice and put it into a sieve with a saucepan or directly use a bowl. Add plenty of cold water to the pan/bowl then stir the rice with your hands. The water will become white, at this step pour the water away, keeping the rice into the recipient. Repeat this step until the water becomes clear, or before if laziness strikes you.

2- The second step is to boil the rice. Simple right?

Add the rice and 390 ml of fresh water to your saucepan. Put it on the stove, and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to low and let it for about 15-20 minutes.

3- Just let steam the rice. Remove the saucepan from the stove and leave the rice to steam for a further 10-15 mins.

4- This step is quite simple, mix sushi vinegar with your cooked rice.

Cooked rice is mixed with sushi vinegar (80 mL) that you can find in any market (Check if the vinegar is already mixed with sugar or no). Mix gently 80 ml of sushi vinegar with the rice.

Nori algae

5- Prepare your ingredients, it might be as I have made, salmon and/or tuna with Philadelphia and/or avocado. Just make it as you wish.

6- Take your Bamboo mat (or cling film) put it on the nori algae. Humidify the algae with some water. Just add the rice on it leaving one inch of space at the top.

7- Add your ingredients into the middle. Then create a roll with your bamboo mat making sure that the ingredients stay into the roll. Then join the begin of the algae with the end. Keep the roll into the mat and apply pressure to the roll gently with your hands.

8- Cut the rolls as you want with a humidified sharp knife. And good appetite!
