Easy Chirashizushi Cake

Easy Chirashizushi Cake

If you put some candles on this it could be a birthday cake!
If you don't have a cake pan, just use a round plastic tupperware container. Just decorate with your favorite things.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sushi rice
1 1/2 rice cooker cups' worth
Flaked salmon
To taste
White sesame seeds, shiso leaves
as much as you like
Usuyaki tamago (thin omelette)
1 egg worth
Boiled shrimp, cooked or smoked salmon, or whatever you like
To taste

Steps

1. Shred the shiso leaves. Mix the sesame weed and shredded shiso in the sushi rice, using a cutting motion so you don't crush the rice.
2. Spread a piece of plastic wrap in a round container (a plastic container or a mold) and spread in half the sushi rice.
3. Sprinkle in some flaked salmon.
4. Add the rest of the sushi rice, and press down tightly with a rice paddle.
5. Line a serving plate with some lettuce or other greens (if you have them). Invert the container of rice on top, and take the plastic wrap off.
6. Decorate the top with whatever you like. I made little flowers made out of smoked salmon, and added usuyaki tamago (thin omelette), shrimp and daikon radish sprouts.

Story Behind this Recipe
