Saba Nigiri Sushi
by Darth Gord for £0.50
22nd August 2006
A pimped up saba (mackerel) nigiri sushi...
Estimated cost : Mackerel - 50p, seaweed - pennies, sushi rice - ditto.
You will need :
A smoked mackerel fillet
Rinse the sushi rice well and cook in a rice cooker/pot as normal. Once done transfer to a shallow tray, add a couple of spoons of vinegar and fold in, leaving to cool.
It takes years to learn to shape nigiri properly, but a fairly good approximation can be made to create the thumb shaped rice.
Place the mackerel fillet over the top, along with a decorative ribbon of seaweed (optional). Compare this big guy with it's little brother.
Serve on a funky dish with wasabi and soy.
Alternatively, as it's not going to be easy to pick up with chopsticks, break the rice and fillet down to normal size sushi.
