How to Make Sushi-Roll Rice Salad


  • 1Rinse rice in several changes of cold water in a bowl until water is almost clear, then drain in a colander 30 minutes.
  • 2Bring rice and 1 3/4 cups water to a boil in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, then simmer, covered, 2 minutes.
  • 3Remove from heat and let rice stand, covered, 10 minutes (do not lift lid).
  • 4While rice is standing, bring vinegar, sugar, and salt just to a boil in a very small saucepan, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, then cool 2 minutes.
  • 5Spread rice in a large shallow baking pan, then sprinkle with vinegar mixture and toss with a wooden spoon.
  • 6Shave thin lengthwise slices from carrot with a vegetable peeler, then cut slices diagonally into 1/4-inch-wide strips.
  • 7Whisk together wasabi, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons water, and oil in a bowl, then add rice, carrot, cucumber, scallions, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds and toss gently.
  • 8Halve, pit, and peel avocado and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange 2 shiso leaves (if using) on each of 4 plates. Top with avocado and rice mixture and sprinkle with nori strips.
