Smoked Salmon Sushi Balls

Smoked Salmon Sushi Balls

These are little bite sized sushi balls that can be served to guests at a party. I hear that they're quite popular in Norway.


White rice
3 rice cooker cups (when uncooked)
Smoked salmon
500 g
Sushi Vinegar:
Rice vinegar
100 ml
2 tablespoons
a scant 1 teaspoon
to taste
to taste


1. Cook the rice with a little less water than usual to get firm sushi rice.
2. Add the vinegar to a pan on low heat and stir in the salt and sugar to create sushi vinegar.
3. Mix the sushi vinegar into the rice and leave to cool. Split into 50 equal portions and cut the salmon into 50 equal suitably sized pieces.
4. Place a slice of smoked salmon and a ball of rice onto a sheet of cling film, wrap the cling film around and mould into a tight ball shape. Unwrap and decorate with some lemon and dill to finish.
