Classic Sushi Boat with Salmon Roe
- 1/3 quantity freshly cooked sushi rice (see recipe below)
- 2 sheets of toasted nori, each cut into 4 strips lengthwise
- wasabi paste
- 8 tablespoons salmon caviar
- soy sauce and pickled ginger,to serve
- For Sushi Rice:
- 10 oz (300 g) sushi rice
- 1½ cups (370 ml) water
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Divide cooked rice into eight equal batches. Wet your hands to stop the rice sticking. Shape each batch of rice into oval.
Wrap a strip of nori round each oval of rice and trim off any excess. Place a drop of vinegary water on the underside of the join to seal it. Dab a little wasabi on top of each sushi boat and top with 1 tablespoon of red caviar.
Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Serve classic sushi with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi paste on the side.
Sushi Rice: In a mixing bowl, combine rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Mix well and set aside.
Place the rice in a strainer and rinse under cold water until water runs completely clear. Drain the rice and place in a pan with water.
Cover tightly pan with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside for 15 minutes.
Turn the cooked rice into a large, flat-bottomed, nonmetallic bowl. Pour the rice seasoning evenly over the surface of the rice, then mix it in with spatula (do not stir or you'll break the rice grains). Fan the rice with either a hand-held fan or an electric one set the lowest setting. Keep slicing and fanning until the rice has reached room temperature and looks shiny. Cover with a damp cloth and use the same day.
