Shrimp sushi recipe
Any kind of sushi is delicious. But if you have tried shrimp sushi, you will know what’s good for you! Shrimp sushi is a wonderful dish, but what’s better even than that is shrimp and avocado sushi. The avocado enhances the taste but it also makes the sushi easier to roll.
In order to make shrimp and avocado sushi you will need the following ingredients:
2 cups of white rice
1 peeled and mashed avocado
1/4 cup of rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons of cilantro
1 tablespoon of wasabi
12 peeled strips of cucumber
24 medium peeled and cooked prawns
6 sheets of seaweed
Cook all of the rice, and then stir it in the vinegar, put on a lid and leave to cool down to room temperature.
Mix the avocado and wasabi together in a small bowl and put aside. Mix the shrimp and cilantro together in a different bowl and also set aside. Cut a quarter off the top of the sheets of seaweed along the one end. Take one sheet and put it on a bamboo mat with the shiny part facing down. Put 3/4 of the rice mixture over the seaweed; leave a boarder of approximately 1″around one long end of the seaweed. Spread one or two tablespoons of the avocado mixture over the rice. Then add the cucumber, shrimp pieces and chives at the bottom third of the seaweed that is covered in the rice mixture.
Then start to roll the seaweed up, lifting the bottom end of the bamboo mat and roll till the other end. While rolling, press down on the sushi roll to ensure that none of the mixture inside gets out anywhere. When it is in a roll, leave it like that for 5 minutes. Then cut it into 8 pieces.
Your shrimp and avocado sushi is now ready to be served. This should serve six people.
If you would just like to make shrimp sushi and not shrimp avocado sushi, follow the same procedure just without including the avocado. So instead of mixing the avocado and wasabi together in one bowl, add the wasabi, with the shrimp and cilantro. It will be more difficult to roll the bamboo mat without avocado, so all you will have to do is press down more firmly on the sushi when you are rolling it.
But remember, the avocado adds to the taste!
