Making sushi is an Art , yes fun but you need some patience and a little organisation !!! But the result is a excellent meal healthy and a great fun presenting it! It's attractive colourful ... So time to get started
When making sushi, there are 3 main points to remember: Color, Flavor and Texture.
Choose good quality ingredients , Japanese rice is very important ,the rice need to be rinsed properly before steaming it it or cooking in rice cooker ! Your mix of salt sugar mirin lemon and ginger is then added while the rice is cooling down and gently mix it in , do not refrigerate the rice !
Select colourfull ingredients ; this is important because it makes the sushi appear vibrant and interesting. Use a rich red tuna beside a yellow omelet, or next to the green hues of an avocado or a cucumber. Be creative
Sushi Rolls are presented in many ways depending on the style of the sushi, but the overriding rule of presentation is Simplicity. All of the ingredients used should be of good enough quality to speak for themselves. Don’t over-garnish the sushi plate or pile too much sushi onto one plate. Anything that detracts from the main event – the sushi - should be removed or re-organized. Bear in mind that the sushi itself is a work of art, and it needs to be treated as such. Try to arrange your plates with only 1 or 2 rolls each, and include just a little wasabi and ginger to garnish. Very simple and elegant. Your dinner guests are sure to be impressed with the delicacy and charm of the dishes.
You want to arrange the sushi pieces on any kind of surface that you feel will do them justice. Imagine you are putting together an exhibition of fine art, and see where your imagination takes you. Try using a mirror as a plate or a large block of sea salt. Most importantly, remember that your sushi should reflect your own creativity and spirit. Enjoy yourself!
Soya sauce ,fresh wasabi some pickled ginger will accompany your creation very well !!! And don't forget to take a picture of your work of art as this art well done will be memories on a empty plate in a flash ...
