For a long time I have been trying to work up the courage to make my own sushi. So tonight, is the night.
For preparation, I have ordered a bamboo mat for rolling the sushi, sushi rice and the nori sheets.
Salmon filets x 2
½ bell pepper
1 x can of Tuna
2 tsp Tahini
Pre-cook your sushi rice in advance so that it has a chance to cool right down. I cooked about a cup of rice and this made 4 rolls.
Gently fry the garlic and bell pepper in a pan, add some chilli if you like a bit of spice. Add the salmon in the same pan. once cooked though allow to cool in the meantime, mix the tuna, tahini and a little oil.
Lay the bamboo mat out on a clean surface or chopping board. Lay a nori sheet on the top of the bamboo mat. Spread a lay of the sushi rice on the nori but leave a good 3-4cm at the front of the sheet. Spread a decent amount of tuna on the end furthest from you, lay some sliced avocado along side the tuna and roll towards you tightly. Slice up.
Repeat with the salmon, slice it and lay across the prepared nori and rice. Add the bell peppers and garlic across and roll.
It tastes amazing, its fresh and healthy. The first roll is not tight enough and a bit fiddly to eat. I will definitely make this again.
