Millennium Dome Sushi

Adults’ Bronze Winner sushi by Memi Sumiya, from the Original Sushi Competition 2003.

Ingredients

6 piecies

  • 150g sushi rice
  • 6 sheets of nori
  • 3 small eggs, boiled
  • skin of 1/3 cucumber, cut into spikes

For the filling

  • 75g soft tofu
  • 1/2 standard piece of abura-age
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp light miso
  • 85g dashi stock

Steps

  1. Drain the tofu well by wrapping it in a kitchen towel and placing a weight on top.
  2. Cut the abura-age into small pieces. Boil with dashi stock until the stock is absorbed.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise and miso in a bowl, add the tofu and abura-age, and mix well. Halve the eggs, remove the yolks, and fill the holes with the mix.
  4. Stick the cucumber spikes into the eggs, to resemble the Millennium Dome.
  5. Gently mould 18g of rice into an oval shape and wrap nori around it. Repeat 6 times.
  6. Place the egg domes on top of the rice.
