If you want to make a pressed sushi, layer the rice on a sheet of plastic wrap, shape it into a long , and top with carrots, paprika and king oyster mushrooms. Then wrap the whole thing with a sushi mat.
Cut it while it is still wrapped in the plastic wrap.
Garnish it with chopped salted plum and the top part of the leek.
If you want to make ball shaped sushi, place the king oyster mushrooms on the plastic wrap, then put the carrot and paprika on. Then layer on the rice and wrap it tightly.
