Welcome back to my sushi channel, in this
week’s episode I’m going to show you how to make a Celebration Sushi Roll.
Begin by wetting your hands so that the rice doesn’t stick to them, and just place 150g
which is about 5 ounces of cooked sushi rice over a half sheet of Nori and then just spread
it out. Now what you want to do here is just cover all the edges.
If you want to know how to cook sushi rice a link will appear now on the left side of
the screen. Once you have covered it completely add some
green sesame seeds, these are colored with wasabi, perfect. And now what you want to
do is just flip over the rice and Nori sheet, add a nice piece of sushi-grade salmon and
add some slices of avocado. Now you want to roll the roll, if you want
more information about rolling sushi a link will appear now on the left side.
You simply bring one side over, hold the content with your fingers, and then just press into
a square shape, move forward one more time, bring back, press again and unroll. That’s
how you make a sushi roll. What I like to do is add some more sesame
seeds, these won’t be as pressed into the rice, they will be more airy so they will
look a little bit more alive when you present the sushi rolls.
Place a piece of cling film over the sushi roll, this will keep the rice in place when
you do the cuts and it will make for a much more beautiful cut. And now you simply just
slice the edges off. I don’t like to have un-neat edges on the sides, I want ever piece
of sushi to be exactly the same. Now you can just eat these yourself or you can throw them
away. Alright so you just cut it in half, and cut
the halves into quarters and then the quarters into eighths.
You want to keep the blade a little bit wet so the rice doesn’t stick too much.
Now to finish off the Celebration Roll, just take a piece of sushi and add a little bit
of ginger carrot sauce on top, a link will appear now on the left hand side to know how
to make this. A little blob on each and then simply add a couple pieces of popcorn. This
is something I have never seen on sushi before but it just livens the sushi roll up, and
it’s so simple. Celebration Sushi Roll done!
In this video you saw me use some green sesame seeds, that would be these here, they are
wasabi covered that’s what gives them their green color, and they taste quite spicy and
they have nice color. I bought these all from America, they come in five different flavors
— garlic, plum, wasabi, bamboo smoke, and soy sauce. While they are really nice to have
and unique, it gives your sushi a special edge compared to the competition or compared
to everybody else’s, it’s quite interesting. Go check it out, I put a link here for you
and just go to my site and you can get more information on where to get these. They are
quite cheap, I think they are about five dollars, the only problem is, if you buy them for Europe
like I did the transport will be about double — yes, so basically about ten dollars each
if you’re in Europe or anywhere else in the world.
