Slice the zucchini into rounds 2-3 mm thick! It's easier to shape it with rice if it's thinner.
Lightly coat a frying pan with olive oil, and fry the zucchini from Step 1 on both sides. Don't forget to sprinkle on a little salt.
Now you have sushi rice and zucchini to make sushi balls.
Place a slice of cooled zucchini onto a piece of plastic wrap, and put a small mound of rice (bite-sized) on top.
Squeeze and shape into a ball!!
It goes really well with wasabi and soy sauce.
Story Behind this Recipe
I just love zucchini, so I'm always thinking of various ways to eat it.
You will have a lot of delicious juices left over from the zucchini after you fry it in Step 2, but don't throw it all away. Spread it on top of the sushi to finish, using a spoon. The sushi will look shiny and become even more delicious. It goes well with lemon juice and black pepper, too!
