Scattered Sushi

My Japanese Comfort Food – Chirashizushi (Scattered Sushi) ちらし寿司

>
>
While  sushi is a popular favorite around the world these days, most folks outside of Japan or Korea shy away from making it at home because they think it is too difficult and time-consuming. What’s more, really fresh, high quality seafood  is not widely accessible or affordable for many people, so for the majority of us sushi has been and will remain a “Restaurant Treat”.
Chirashizushi  to the rescue !!! 🙂
You will need sushi rice, any raw, cooked or otherwise preserved protein and / or vegetables, maybe some seaweed and sesame seeds thrown-in and you are ready to go. You can prepare the most simple combination as shown here, or the most beautiful, complicated, exquisite concoction you can muster. Your fantasy, skill and wallet are the only limits.
No need to make perfect rolls, or other shapes which are the common restaurant staples. Just rice in a bowl, everything else neatly arranged on top and voilà – sushi heaven without the sweat 🙂
The only difficulty one needs to be able to skillfully execute is the preparation of the sushi rice. But, considering the reward of a great sushi rice, learning to prepare it on a decent level is well worth the trouble. And while you might never be a sushi rice master, after a bunch of trials (and errors) you should be fine and able to wow yourself, friends and family with sushi rice that is well on its way to perfection – and probably far better than the crap most cheap eateries pass-on as sushi rice 🙂

Chirashizushi (Scattered Sushi) (ちらし寿司

I am  trying today to continue with my quest for a healthier living.  After a substantial, healthy breakfast,  I decided that sushi will be light and healthy enough. Usually I would have been right, but there was a problem – I, as usual, was so looking forward to it that I prepared way too much and therefore ate too much, as usual 😦
But boy, was it worth the sin 🙂

The “Chirashizushi” included:

Lobster, crayfish, crab legs, octopus, mussels, shiitake mushrooms, avocado, cucumber, nori, black sesame seeds, egg, scallion, sushi rice.
