Chirashizushi

Literally meaning ‘escattered sushi’, this differs from the other main kinds of sushi in that it is served in a bowl, with the vinegared rice being topped with an assortment of toppings, most typically raw fish.

Steps

  1. Pour 70ml hot water over the squid to parboil, and prepare the seafood according to the Nigirizushi recipe.
  2. Make the rolled omelette in the same way as for the Egg Nigirizushi, and cut 2 x 3cm width slices.
