Sushi – Kitchen Secrets – Practical Recipes

A few months ago, we were at the Culinary Arts Academy at the invitation of Devletşah and Kikkoman. Since I want to prepare a detailed article and I am mostly busy, I have not had the opportunity to share this subject for a long time.

Under the direction of Kikkoman’s Sushi Chef Kiyoshi Hayamizu, we prepared the most popular and well-known Japanese dishes such as Sushi, Japanese Vegetable Soup with Soy Sauce, Salmon Teriyaki, Sea Bass Carpaccio. Our topic today is sushi, I hope I can share other recipes with you in the near future.

Sushi is a Japanese dish prepared by wrapping seafood such as rice pilaf, vegetables, raw or steamed fish, crab, octopus, shrimp, and seaweed leaves (Nori), which is also unique to Japan.

My preference is for California roll and Nigiri rather than Thin roll. California roll is actually a completely assimilated sushi, chef Kiyoshi Hayamizu explained that this recipe was developed thanks to the Americans, in fact, there is no such sushi in their culture. In other words, it has undergone some changes according to the taste.

If you want to make sushi at home and if you are going to use raw fish, you need to pay attention to hygiene. You should choose fish that you are absolutely sure to be fresh or fish that has been frozen. You should also clean the counter where you will make the fish very well.

Sushi can also be prepared using only vegetables instead of meat. Wasabi and soy sauce made from hot mustard with a green paste-like consistency are served with it. Sake or green tea, a Japanese drink served warm upon request, can also be served with sushi.

Sushi can be eaten with chopsticks or by hand, but cutlery is not used.

6 pieces of sushi come out of 1 piece of nori, that is, a seaweed leaf. I adjusted the recipe I gave you accordingly. You can increase the amount proportionally if you wish.

I’ll post the California roll recipe another time because the post is getting too long.

You can obtain the materials you will use in making sushi from Macrocenter or Love…
