In my previous post I wrote that sushi was Michael Jackson’s favorite food. So I thought making some simple sushi with fish filling this weekend while I listen to the great numbers of MJ.
Sushi is one of the famous traditional Japanese meal . It is a food made of rice combined with various toppings and delicious fillings, which includes seafood and can also include vegetables, mushrooms, eggs, or meat. Sushi toppings may be raw, like most fish; cooked; blanched; or marinated.There are various types of sushi, the most common one being maki (rolls) - sushi served rolled in dried nori sheets. This is a very healthy choice also.

For sushi rice
Japanese-style cooked rice 3 cups
Rice vinegar 3/4 cup
Sugar 1 teaspoon
Salt 1 teaspoon
Roasted nori sheet
For filling:
Balanced boneless fish scramble ½ cup
Balanced prawn 4 to 5
Balanced beans and carrot slices ½ cup


Cook rice according to package instructions.Mix vinegar, sugar and salt.mix vinegar mixture into cooked rice until well combined. Place nori sheet on roller and spread a thin layer of the sushi rice over the nori. Place your filling in a center line on the nori sheet. Begin rolling by carefully folding over the top edge and starting the roll. Continue to roll, keeping the roll as tight as possible. To roll sushi you can use a bamboo sushi mat, or just use a clean towel instead, or you can even forego the roller and just carefully roll using your hands but this need a bit expertise. Take a sharp knife and slice the roll into 1- 1 1/2 inch pieces.
You can have it with any sushi dip or sushi sauce but my favorite dip recipe is (In a small bowl, combine 1tsp wasabi paste,2tsp of finely sliced scallion green part, ½ cup mirin, 6tbsp soy sauce and 1tsp of dark sesame oil, and stir until combined.)

If it sounds a bit difficult then watch this video to make a perfect poetic sushi roll this weekend.
