We’re making temaki, a Japanese hand-rolled sushi, on AZ Cooks tonight! It’s super fun and easy to make at home.
- Japanese short grain rice
- Rice wine vinegar
- Seaweed paper (Nori)
- Salmon roe 4-8oz
- Uni (really good stuff in beautiful tongues)
Cook your short grain rice according to the package instructions. Once it’s cooked, season with rice wine vinegar, sugar and mirin in a 1:1:4 ratio.
Cut the nori into 3 or 4 inch pieces. Place a couple tablespoons of the seasoned rice in the nori, and add the toppings of your choice. I like fresh hamachi and tuna, tongues of uni, salmon roe, eel, cucumber, avocado, scallions… you name it!
