<i>Temaki Sushi</i>
  Temaki Sushi, or hand-rolled sushi is easy to make at home with a little bit of preparation. Here are some basic instructions on how to hand-roll your own. It's easy to learn and fun to make, perfect for a sushi party!

Ingredients (serves 3):

  • 3 cups sushi rice, cooked (see Sushi Rice recipe)
  • 8 sheets nori (Seaweed), cut in halves
  • Soy sauce
  • Wasabi
  • Gari (pickled ginger)

Suggested Ingredients:

  • Tuna
  • Shrimp, boiled
  • Smoked salmon
  • Ham
  • Cheese
  • Salmon roe
  • Japanese cucumber (or English cucumber)
  • Cornichon
  • Green onion
  • Perilla (Ooba)
  • Daikon sprouts
  • Red leaf Lettuce
1

Prepare the ingredients. This part probably takes the most time, but once it’s ready, there won’t be any further cooking for the chef.

  • Cook and make the sushi rice--allow the time to cool it properly because it tastes better when cooled than when warm.
  • Carefully slice whatever ingredient you prefer, whether fish, vegetables or meat, into elongated strips that will better fit your hand-roll.
  • Be sure to provide soy sauce, wasabi and ginger for your guests who want them.
  • Finally, take some time to arrange all your ingredients artistically on a large plate. It's the little details that go a long way toward a strong visual presentation.
2

Place a sheet of nori on one hand, and place a ball of rice at the edge.

3

Place the ingredients diagonally on top of the rice.

4

Fold in the corner of the nori wrap.

5

Then wrap into a cone shape. Practice makes perfect; you should be rolling perfect pieces in no time.

6

You won't believe how much fun this is--and everyone gets to eat their creations!

Tips:

For any hand-rolled sushi, do not overload! The trick to better looking sushi is to use your ingredients sparingly. Enjoy!
