Hubby and I love Nori rolls. I love all forms of sushi really, as long as it doesn't have avocado (I'm allergic) and I have wanted to make it myself for a long time. In fact it's on my 10 food things I want to do in 2010 list.
We're so lucky here in Australia these days we have such a good range of multicultural foods in supermarkets. I was able to pick up the bamboo rolling mat, the sushi rice, mirin and nori seaweed papers all at Coles, and I think for all of it cost me about $10. I then went to the fishmongers and bought some sushi salmon and some cooked prawns and then when the kids were safely and snugly in bed, hubby and I went about our sushi adventure.
Ingredients: - made 3 large nori rolls (multiplicate depending on how many you'd like to make)
1 cup (uncooked) Sushi Rice (about $3.50 for 1kg)
3 cups water
2 tb Mirin (japanese vinegar - about $2.50 a bottle)
3 Nori seaweed papers (about $2.50 for 10)
You can buy the japanese mayonaise, but I cheated and watered down some regular mayonaise so it was the consistency of tomato sauce.
1 bamboo rolling mat
glass water on standby
Fillings as you like - we used
Peeled cucumber cut into batons
Cold BBQ chicken thighs (no skin)
Peeled cooked prawns
Sushi grade salmon
Delicate type of lettuce (we used butter)
Place uncooked rice in 3 cups of cold water, bring to the boil and simmer until cooked.
