Sushi Burrito

Ingredients

  • For the rice: 1 cup uncooked sushi rice 1 cup water 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

  • For the fish: 1/2 pounds sushi grade salmon, cut into 1/2' cubes 2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce 1 teaspoon Sriracha 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil 1/2 teaspoon rice vinegar 1 teaspoon lime juice 1 teaspoon chives, chopped

  • For the rest: 1 nori sheet 2-3 avocado slices some cucumber strips furikake to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook the rice: rinse rice in cold water until the water runs clear. Place rice and water in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave covered for about 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine sugar, vinegar, and salt until everything is fully dissolved. Transfer rice to a large bowl. Slowly pour the mixture over the rice, and gently fold it into the rice. Let cool to room temperature.

  2. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for fish. Taste and adjust for seasoning.

  3. To assemble: place nori sheet (rough side up) on a sushi bamboo mat. With wet fingers, spread rice in an even layer over the nori. Be sure to leave some space above the rice. Place the fish mixture, avocado, cucumber, and furikake across the rice. Carefully roll up the sushi burrito by lifting up the end closest to you, and then use both hands to tuck the roll in, while applying even pressure. Dab some water on the exposed nori edge to seal the burrito.

  4. To serve, wrap in parchment and slice in half.
