Your favorite toppings. The picture shows tuna, salmon, scallops, and egg.
Garnish: salmon roe, cream cheese, black pepper
Cook the rice. Put all of the ● ingredients into a pot and turn on the heat. Remove from the heat when the sugar has dissolved and let cool. When cooled, mix in the lemon juice.
Spread out your toppings and cut them to your desired size. If they're too thick, it will be hard to roll up.
Make finely scrambled eggs. If you strain scrambled eggs, you can make it super fine.
Combine the seasoning ingredients and mix into the rice. Form the rice into bite-sized balls.
Put the topping on plastic wrap, set a rice ball on top, and use the wrap to squeeze the ball and topping together.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to think up a recipe to use up extras, so I came up with these sushi balls with lemon juice. Because they have lemon juice, they would go great with cream cheese as well! You can use these to serve to guests at a Japanese or Western-style dinner.
Adjust the amount of lemon juice to taste. Rolling the rice into balls is easy and fun, so I think it'd be fun project to make with small children.
