Assorted seafood with sushi rice, soy and seaweed
Serves: 6, Preparation Time: 40 minutes, Method: Easy
Chirasi means ‘to scatter’ and that’s the secret to making this simple yet fun dish. This is the perfect meal to serve guests who have varying tastes and preferences. You can even lay the ingredients out for them to choose what they like.
THE SUSHI RICE:
Japanese rice 3 cups
sushi rice vinegar 8tbsp
Prawns 500g large and boiled
crab meat 300g
salmon 500g, cubed
tuna 400g, cubed
salmon roe 400g (I prefer South Wind)
Nori (seaweed sheets) 1/2 cup, shredded
scallions 1/2 cup, finely chopped
Wash the rice and soak for 20 minutes. Drain and put the rice in an automatic rice cooker with water or cook in a pan as per packet instructions. When cooked, place the rice in a bowl and mix in the sushi rice vinegar gently without breaking the grains.
Now lightly marinate all the toppings in soy sauce for not longer than 2 minutes. To assemble the barazushi, start by putting about a cup of sushi rice in a serving bowl, and then simply add the topping ingredients.
Garnish with shredded nori sheets and chopped scallions. Gari (pickled ginger) and wasabi can be served as accompaniments. You can also make a thin omelette, shred it and place it over the rice along with the marinated seafood.
