Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 20 2008
42 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 21, 2008 Turning Japanese SUSHI SANDWICHES Recipe: CATHIE LONNIE. Photography: ROB PALMER. Ingredients: 1 quantity basic sushi rice (see below); 4 nori sheets; 1 medium carrot, cut into ribbons; 150g roasted red capsicum, cut into strips; 2 lebanese cucumbers, cut into ribbons; 1/3 cup pickled ginger. Method: Make basic sushi rice. Place nori sheets, shiny- side down, on work bench. Using damp fingers, spread rice over each sheet. Arrange carrot, capsicum, cucumber and ginger over rice on 2 of the sheets. Place remaining nori sheets over vegetables, rice-side down. Press down to secure. Cut into quarters. Cut each quarter into 2 triangles to make 16 sandwiches. Basic sushi rice: Makes 3 cups. 1 cup Kokuno Rose sushi rice; 1/4 cup Mizkan sushi seasoning. Method: Rinse and drain rice 3 times or until water runs clear. Place rice in a strainer. Drain for 10 minutes. Place rice and 1 cup cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 12 minutes or until rice has absorbed water. Remove from heat. Stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Transfer to a large ceramic dish. Stir rice with a plastic spatula to break up lumps. Gradually add seasoning while lifting and turning rice until rice is almost cold.

Ask Kim I would love to be able to make sushi rolls at home, but it looks so complicated. Could you point me in the right direction? It's very important to use the correct rice, as others will not have the right texture or shape. Sushi rice is short-grain and pro- duces a sticky finish when cooked, making it easy to mould. Don't refrigerate the cooked rice before using -- this will adversely affect the taste, texture and moisture. Use a very sharp, non-serrated knife to cut sushi so you don't tear the nori. Wipe the knife with a damp cloth after each cut, so food doesn't stick to it and you have nice clean slices. For most sushi styles you'll need a bamboo sushi rolling mat, avail- able from major supermarkets and Asian grocery stores. A good option is to buy a sushi kit that includes sushi rice, seasoning, a rolling mat and nori. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.
