How to make Norimaki Sushi
Ingredients

Each nori sheet makes 6-8 sushi units

  • 4 nori seaweed sheets
  • 3 cups (450g) rice
  • 5-6 cups water
  • 1 small cucumber, cut to strips
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and cut to strips
  • 1 avocado, peeled with stone removed and cut to strips
  • 100g chicken breast cut to thin strips
  • 1/2 capsicum, seeds removed and cut to strips
  • 1 small courgette cut to strips
  • 2-3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • Your choice of sauce to cook chicken in
  • Wasabi and soy sauce to serve
Directions
  • Wash rice 2 to 3 times.
  • Place rice and water in a pot, bring to boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed. Stir occasionally. Keep rice warm while preparing the rest of the sushi.
  • Cook chicken for 4-5 minutes with sauce.
  • Cut 1 piece of plastic wrap and 1 piece of aluminium foil to the size of the nori sheet.
  • Align the foil on top of the wrap.
  • Wet hands and place two handfuls of rice onto the foil.
  • It's important to keep your hands wet while working with sushi rice because it’s sticky. When you work with the nori however, you should keep them as dry as possible. That’s why you should have a bowl of water and a dry hand-towel nearby when making sushi.
  • Spread the rice evenly to cover 2/3 of the foil surface, leaving a bit of a gap on both sides as well.
  • Now place 1-2 slices of chicken on top of the rice, along with 1-3 slices of vegetables.
  • Start rolling the rice using the wrap and foil together while pressing to compact the rice keeping it tight until you reach the end of the nori.
  • Now you have a roll of rice.
  • Place a nori sheet on a cutting board and carefully transfer the rice roll onto one end and roll the sheet around the rice.
  • Leave aside to cool, then use a wet, sharp knife to cut the roll into sushi slices. 6-8 slices per roll.
  • Serve sushi with soy sauce and wasabi.
Tips

You can use smoked salmon slices, flaked crab meat or tuna as well to make sushi.

Nori is the Japanese name for edible seaweed and is commonly used as a wrap to make sushi.

Nori is about one-third protein and one-third dietary fibre, and contains high proportions of iodine, vitamins A, B, and K, and iron. It’s also low in calories and as a result very popular.
