Sushi Sandwich by Rose

You typically don’t see the sushi sandwich in America.
But go into any sushi place in Israel and it’s really popular.
Have fun making sushi and sushi sandwiches at home!.

Ingredients For the Rice::

2 cups sushi rice (short grain rice)

Rice wine vinegar

salt

sugar

Instructions:

Rinse the rice in a colander until the water runs clear.

Put rice into a heavy pot with a tight fitting lid.

To your 2 cups of rice add 4 cups of water.

Bring the rice and water to a high boil uncovered then turn the heat to low and cover the pot.

Let rice simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and take the cover off the pot.

Cover the pot with a tea towel and let cool.

While you are waiting for the rice to cool you will make your vinegar solution that flavors the rice.

In a small sauce pan put:

1/4 cup of rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon of salt

1 tablespoon of sugar

Heat this mixture up until the sugar and salt dissolve.

Let this mixture cool.

When rice is cool transfer it into a large bowl and sprinkle the vinegar solution over it. Gently mix the solution into the rice being careful not to mash the rice.

Making Sushi!

You will need nori (seaweed sheets) and sesame seeds.

Choose and prepare your favorite sushi stuffers:(some common options are)

cucumber, seeded and cut into thin slices

avocado peeled and sliced

asparagas steamed

sweet potato baked,peeled and cut into thin slices

Mango, peeled,seeded and cut into thin slices

Salmon (make sure it is sushi grade)

tuna (again sushi grade)

How to roll sushi:

Take a sheet of nori and cut it in half.

Place it on a piece of plastic wrap in front of you.

Dip your hands in water and take a handful of the rice.

Spread it edge to edge on the nori.

Sprinkle the top with the sesame seeds.

Carefully flip the nori so that the rice is now on the bottom against the plastic wrap.

Place whichever fillings you choose along the edge of the nori.

Lift the plastic wrap at the edge where the filling is and begin to roll the sushi.

Sushi rolling takes some practice.

Too much filling won’t work.

You also have to squeeze the roll as you go so the roll sticks to itself.

Cutting the roll:

Wet a sharp knife.

Cut the sushi into inch long pieces wetting the knife between each cut.

Enjoy your homemade sushi,

even the mistakes are going to taste good!

  1. Sushi is so yummy. It looks hard to make…I am too lazy to attempt it myself 🙂

  2. I’ve made sushi before, but I put the rice on the inside. I’ll definitely planning on making it again. 🙂

    • I’ve done it that way too but I find the texture of the rice more appealing then the nori for “first contact”. The snap of the sesame seeds and nuttiness are also a big “Wow factor”. Guess what’s freezing in my freezer?? Watermelon. It’s 6 pounds or so, I pu it in at about 5 a.m. and it’s still not frozen yet.

  3. Hey, thanks for the kind comment on my blog. This sushi sandwich looks delicious, and as we’re going to Israel in May it’s something to look forward to trying! Great blog and pics.

  4. Thanks! The best sushi sandwich that I know of can be had at “Japanika” on Rehov Jaffo near Coffee Bean. Across from Agvania. This is near the center of town not the old city. Have a great time!
