Ingredients

How to make it

  • Rinse rice in several changes of cold water in a bowl until water is almost clear, then drain in a colander 30 minutes.
  • Bring rice and 1 3/4 cups water to a boil in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, then simmer, covered, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let rice stand, covered, 10 minutes (do not lift lid).
  • While rice is standing, bring vinegar, sugar, and salt just to a boil in a very small saucepan, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, then cool 2 minutes.
  • Spread rice in a large shallow baking pan, then sprinkle with vinegar mixture and toss with a wooden spoon.
  • Shave thin lengthwise slices from carrot with a vegetable peeler, then cut slices diagonally into 1/4-inch-wide strips.
  • Whisk together wasabi, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons water, and oil in a bowl, then add rice, carrot, cucumber, scallions, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds and toss gently.
  • Halve, pit, and peel avocado and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • Arrange 2 shiso leaves (if using) on each of 4 plates. Top with avocado and rice mixture and sprinkle with nori strips.

    Yeah, my former roommate taught me a middle-eastern way of "opening" rice by soaking it in water for at least 20 minutes, draining and rinsing it before boiling. This sounds really good though, I love sushi, just put it right into my veins. lol I could see adding some shredded crab, some shrimp or raw salmon pieces to this, and add soy sauce instead of the vinegar. Or maybe both. Hm. We'll have to see, I need to experiment and let you know.
