Sushi fake

Today I’m going to prepare 2 types of sushi: One of them is fake, and the other one… also! 😀 😀

Well, the only thing it has from sushi is the nori seaweed, but it tastes very nice and it’s really fit.

SUSHI – MY WAY

3 leaves of nori

whole rice (boiled and cooled) (about 200 gr.)

a filet of fresh salmon (about 200 gr.)

…..

Cut the salmon in thin strips (about 2 cm.)

Put a layer of cooked rice on the nori leaf and press well with the hands.

Put a line of salmon on the rice, and roll the seaweed pressing it to make it compact.

Cut it with a good knife in pieces of 3 cm.

Our “makis” are done!

Serve them with a small bowl of soya sauce, sesame seeds, ginger and wasabi (if you like it spicy)…

 

FAKE SUSHI (this one doesn’t even have rice)

3 leaves of nori

½ small cauliflower

1 onion

2 carrots

1 tablespoon of olive oil

a splash of soya sauce

……

Chop the cauliflower in a mincer (until it looks like rice).

Chop the onion very small (same size as the cauliflower).

Grate the carrots.

Put the chopped onion in a pan with olive oil, cover it and poach it for a couple of minutes.

Add the grated carrots and the cauliflower and continue cooking for about 8 min.

Dress with a splash of soya sauce, mix it and turn off the heat.

On a nori leaf put 3 or 4 spoons of the veggie mix, roll it pressing well with the hands (this is an important step so it does not crumble).

Cut it with a wet knife in pieces of 3 cm.

Our “fake makis” are done!

 

These are my fit & fake sushi.

Fit, because the whole grain rice bring us many more nutrients than the traditional Japanese white rice. Moreover I don’t add any rice vinegar that has a lot of sugar.

Nevertheless, when I feel like eating real sushi, I go to a good Japanese restaurant. Render unto Caesar!  😉
