Instant Prep, Easy Chirashi-zushi

Instant Prep, Easy Chirashi-zushi

Marinate the bonito and make an easy-to-prep "scattered" sushi dish! I simplified the seasonings to a bare minimum.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sushi rice
two bowls' worth
Skipjack tuna (bonito)
1 slab
Finely grated ginger
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
to taste
White sesame seeds
to taste
Pickled ginger (optional)
to taste


1. Thinly slice the bonito. Transfer the slices to a bowl, pour soy sauce over them just until it covers the top of the bonito, then add grated ginger, and set aside to macerate.
2. Thinly slice the cucumber.
3. Fill rice bowls with sushi rice, and top with bonito from Step 1 and cucumber slices from Step 2, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and add a touch of picked ginger.

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought bonito, and wanted to bulk it up instead of eating it as sashimi, so I used it as topping for a donburi rice bowl dish.
