Kid's Sushi


With Vanessa Baxter and sons Christopher & Morgan

 

Naturally you can put anything into the sushi – kids enjoy:

Tuna mixed with mayonnaise and sticks of raw vegetables

Shredded cooked chicken mixed with soya sauce and honey

Mashed soft boiled eggs with mayonnaise and chives.

 

Sushi Rice:

3 cups of sushi rice

1/3 cup sushi vinegar

3 Tbs sugar

1 tsp salt

(or you can use premixed sushi seasoning.)

Nori Paper

 

Method:

Wash the rice thoroughly to remove starch – this is vital – and will take you several washings/minutes!

Cook the sushi rice in a rice cooker or with 3 ¼ cups of water in a saucepan with a tight fitting lid.

If using a saucepan, bring the water to a boil and then reduce the temperature to a simmer. Let the rice cook for exactly 20 minutes.

Allow the rice to rest for 5 minutes.

Tip the rice onto a baking tray where you want it to cool down.

Meantime, gently heat the vinegar, sugar and salt until all sugar is dissolved.

Sprinkle the vinegar/seasoning over the rice and using a rice paddle or flat edged knife, cut the seasoning through the rice.

When the rice is cool enough to handle, place a sheet of nori paper on a chopping board.

Spread 2 Tbs of rice along the bottom half of the sheet and top with your favourite toppings.

Brush the edges with a little water and roll to enclose.

Slice the rolls and serve with soya sauce.
