Thinly slice cucumbers lengthwise with a peeler and use 1/2 an egg to make an egg crepe, then cut into long, thin slices.
Fold (as if cutting) the seasoned rice vinegar into the freshly cooked rice to make sushi rice.
Form the sushi rice into balls with a slightly flat surface on the bottom and top. Wrap with cucumber, egg, or smoked salmon.
Top with your favorite garnishes (raw tuna, grilled egg, avocado, etc.) and serve!
This could be a festive way to dress up a table for Christmas, Doll's Festival, or on birthdays.
Story Behind this Recipe
I came up with this decorative variation of temari sushi (ball-shaped sushi bites), as I make these often for my family.
I used half an egg to make an egg crepe, and the other half to make a rolled omelet. I used seasoned rice vinegar, but you can make your own. While it looks complicated, these are actually very easy to make! A perfect time-saving party dish.
