- 4 oz
- smoked salmon
- 1 c
- cooked sushi rice
- pickled ginger, if desired
- soy sauce for dipping, if desired
- wasabi, if desired
1Slice the salmon into bite sized pieces.
2Put a little wasabi on one side of the fish.
3Moisten your hands with water and place a small ball of sushi rice in your palm, about 2 tablespoons.
4Press the fish, wasabi-side down, onto the rice.
5Gently hand-sculpt and shape it into an oblong. The rice has to be tight enough to hold a shape, but loose enough to melt in your mouth.
6Serve with soy sauce for dipping and additional wasabi and pickled ginger, if desired.
Dip in soy sauce, fish first, not rice.
