My favourite meal - Sushi

When I were in SJ last few years, I like to go to Sushi King with my housemates- Irene, Lisa, Siao Wei and Kah Ling to enjoy Japanese foods. Sometimes I went out with my ex-colleagues, sales agent, clients or consultants to Japanese Restaurant in SJ area or Bangsar too. haha ... because all of us also like to eat Sushi....

Last 2 days, we made Sushi for our dinner with green tea.

To make Sushi Rice:
Cook 2-3 cups of sushi rice. However, before actually cooking the rice in the rice cooker, place the washed uncooked rice in a colander and let it expand for about 30 minutes. This additional step will ensure a better consistency for assembling sushi later.

Sushi dressing:

1/4 cup rice vinegar,3 tbsps sugar, 1/2 tbsps salt. Mix it together and heat until sugar dissolves.

To prepare the rice:
When the rice is cooked, turn it out into a large bowl (preferably wooden). Slowly pour the sushi dressing into the cooked rice and mix by 'slicing' across the rice instead of mixing in a circular option with a rice paddle. Mix well and let cool to room temperature. Once cool, mound the rice in the center and cover the bowl with a damp cloth and the rice is ready for use.

Prepare the filling (as liking), we used smoked salmon, cucumber, crab stiks, egg and avocado (butter fruit).

To form the sushi, place the rice on a piece of seeweed . Distribute them evenly while pressing slightly. Put the filling in any combination in the middle and roll it up, pressing it gently after every turn. Cut the roll into 6 pieces.
