Add sugar and water to the eggs and beat to make scrambled eggs. Adding water keeps the scrambled egg from becoming dry. When it is ready, let is cool off a little then put it in a cake pan like in the picture.
Put sushi rice on the egg in step 1. Make the kind of sushi rice you like. This time I used a ready made sushi seasoning pack.
Fold the cured ham in half and roll the ham.
Shape the outside part looks like a real flower.
It looks like this.
This is the salmon and red sea bream version.
The red sea bream was a bit thick so I sliced it into half.
Decorate the rice in step 2 and it is ready!
Use asparagus or cucumber if you want some green things on it.
You can make a shape using a milk pack or even use a small bowl if you don't have a cake pan!
The contrast of the red and white is beautiful.
There is some shiso leaf underneath even though you can't see it.
