California Roll With Fried Shrimp

California Roll With Fried Shrimp

I transformed the leftover fried shrimp I made the day before!! As you can see, they're great if you're throwing a house party.

Ingredients: Makes 2 rolls

Sushi Rice
2 small rice bowls' worth
Sesame seeds
to taste
Toasted nori seaweed
2 sheets
Fried Shrimp
Lettuce (if you have it, red lettuce)
to taste
to taste


1. While the rice is still warm, pour in sushi vinegar, and mix it with cutting motions. Put the seaweed on top of a bamboo sushi mat, and then spread out the sushi rice evenly. Coat the top with sesame seeds. Cover the top with plastic wrap, gently press down and then flip it over. Place the bamboo sushi mat on the bottom.
2. On top of the seaweed, line the shrimp up so that they are facing each other as pictured and are slightly sticking out. Put on the bottom third of the nori.
3. While holding the shrimp down with your middle finger, roll it up using the bamboo mat. Then push it firmly once to have it stick. After that, gently remove the plastic wrap so that it doesn't get rolled up into the sushi itself and finish rolling it up. Once again, firmly push it down.
4. Cut into 6 portions. When you cut it, be sure to use a wet kitchen knife. After each cut you make, re-wet the blade. Drizzle the top with mayonnaise and it's done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make something that used the fried shrimp that I made the day before.
