How to make it
- Prepare Sushi Rice:
- Place rice in strainer. Rinse under cold water until water runs clear. Drain well.
- Transfer rice to heavy medium saucepan. Add 1 1/4 cups fresh cold water and kelp to pan. Cover and let soak 30 minutes.
- Uncover, discard kelp and bring mixture to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, about 15 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Let stand covered 15 minutes.
- Transfer rice to large glass bowl.
- Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in small saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
- Drizzle mixture over rice. Gently toss rice with vinegar mixture to coat.
- Cover rice with clean damp towel and cool completely at room temperature (do not refrigerate).
- Combine 1 cup Dashi, sugar and 3 teaspoons mirin in medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium-low heat.
- Add carrot strips; cook until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer carrot strips to bowl.
- Add bamboo shoots, mushrooms and soy sauce to cooking liquid. Cook until liquid is almost evaporated, about 5 minutes.
- Add carrot strips. Cool mixture completely.
- Whisk egg, salt and 1 teaspoon mirin in small bowl to blend.
- Spray 9-inch-diameter nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. Heat skillet over medium-low heat.
- Pour egg mixture into skillet, swirling skillet to coat bottom evenly. Cook until bottom of egg mixture is set but not brown, about 45 seconds.
- Turn egg pancake over. Cook until egg pancake is set on bottom, about 20 seconds. Transfer to paper towel. Cool completely.
- Roll up egg pancake, then cut crosswise into very thin strips. Toss with fingers to fluff egg strips.
- Cook asparagus in medium saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Cool asparagus in bowl of ice water. Drain well.
- Toss Sushi Rice, carrot mixture and asparagus in large bowl.
- **Egg strips and rice mixture can be made 2 hours ahead. Cover separately and let stand at cool room temperature. Do not refrigerate.
- Line 6 bowls with lettuce leaves. Spoon rice mixture into leaves, mounding slightly. Garnish rice with egg strips, shrimp and pickled ginger and serve.
