JAPANESE NORI-MAKI SUSHI RECIPE
A great Japanese sushi recipe to try ~!
JAPANESE SUSHI RECIPE INGREDIENTS
- 4 tbsp. sushi seasoning ("tamonoi" powder)
- 2 nori sheets (seasoned & roasted nori, 10 sheets, about 7 1/2" x 8")
- 2 c. hot cooked rice (short grained)
- Cooked or parboiled vegetables (cut into strips would be good: carrots, zucchini, green beans, spinach)
First of all Place rice into a 2 quart mixing bowl. Sprinkle sushi seasoning over rice, then toss the rice thoroughly. If you have a sushi-making bamboo mat, great! If not, don't worry, this will work fine on the counter top without the mat.
And then Place one nori sheet on the counter in front of you. Place one half of the rice mixture on the nori and spread the rice with your fingertips to three edges of the nori sheet, leaving about the top 2" uncovered. Next, place any vegetables you wish to use along the bottom edge.
Next is to Roll up (jelly roll style), pressing firmly, starting at the bottom. When you reach the top 2" of nori, wet this part with water (just as you would seal an envelope) and continue rolling. Set side and repeat the process for the second roll. Cut the roll in about 6 parts using a sharp knife. Arrange on a plate. Serve with a small dish of soy sauce for dipping. The Japanese sushi recipe of nori maki is ready ! Enjoy !
