Temari Sushi

My friend's family came to visit! Both kids and adults can enjoy this! It's a great type of sushi to serve up to your guests. Just roll them up in plastic wrap!!!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Hot cooked white rice
using 2 scant rice cooker cups (350 g) of uncooked rice
Sushi vinegar
to taste
*Egg for kinshi tamago
1
*Cucumber
1/2
*Ham
3 slices
*Tuna, salmon (for sashimi)
3 slices each
*Negitoro (minced fatty tuna with scallions)
as needed
*Nori (dried seaweed sheet)
as needed
*Mayonnaise
to taste

Steps

1. Combine cooked rice with the sushi vinegar to make sushi rice! Use a hand fan to air it out while using a rice paddle to mix (airing it out will help adjust the texture of the rice and make it look glossier).
2. Prepare the ingredients. First, roll the rice into bite-sized pieces and wrap with plastic wrap.
3. Make an egg crepe, then cut it into ribbons for kinshi tamago.
4. Slice the cucumber with a slicer and arrange the slices into a flower design. Add a bit mayonnaise underneath the cucumber slices to help them stick to the rice.
5. Using a heart-shaped cutter, cut the ham into hearts.
6. Put some wasabi between the rice and tuna or salmon.
7. With the negitoro, stuff it inside the rice, then create a design on the outer surface of the rice ball using thin strips of nori.
