I sliced the sashimi that I bought into 2 thin halves to make twice the amount of sushi. It's much more delicious than the sushi you'll find at your average conveyor belt sushi restaurant. How about topping these sushi with your favorite sashimi, and having a party?
Wash and drain the shiso leaves and cucumber. Cut the cucumber into thin slices with a slicer.
Slice the sashimi into 2 thin layers. This is how we get twice the sashimi.
Prepare the sushi rice.
Rest a piece of sashimi on top of a sheet of cling film, then either a shiso leaf or a piece of cucumber on top of that, then finally cover with some sushi rice. Roll into a tight ball and it's done.
Inarizushi Version: Cut an inarizushi wrapper in half and pack with sushi rice. Make it so the the bottom of the wrapper becomes a triangle shape.
And the mini inarizushi are ready!
Story Behind this Recipe
My son loves sushi, so I wanted to make a lot of these for him.
It's best to make these sushi balls quite small. But mine unintentionally end up the size of onigiri rice balls anyway.
