This is super easy and cute temari sushi made with chirashi sushi mix. Great for guests, celebrations, and New Year's! Good for using up senmai-zuke!

Chirashi sushi mix (for 270 g of rice)
1 packet
Boiled shrimp
Yuzu peel
to taste
1 serving: About 465 calories, 5.5 g of salt


1. Mix the chirashi sushi mix with freshly made rice and let cool. (This package has 2 packets, but I used one.)
2. I bought boiled shrimp. You can also boil raw shrimp yourself.
3. Slice the shrimp in half.
4. Put a piece of the senmai-zuke on some plastic wrap or in a small container and top with a shrimp. (Position the shrimp so that the red portion will be visible).
5. Top with the chirashizushi from Step 1 and squeeze into a ball shape. Transfer to a plate. Garnish with shredded yuzu peel to finish.
6. In this picture, I wrapped it with an egg crepe. It's great for kids. The yellow color is so nice and spring-like!
7. To make it, put a piece of the egg crepe on top of the plastic wrap in Step 4, then top with the chirashi sushi. Garnish it with some shiso leaves.
8. This time, the senmai-zuke I used was Easy Turnip Senmai-Zuke at (Recipe ID: 497343)

Story Behind this Recipe

At New Year's, I have senmai-zuke, but I end up getting tired of it. So, I wanted to think of some delicious way to use it up. Last year, I made this, and it was quite good, so this year I made it again.
