Japanese Pickle Roll (Handroll, Temakisushi)


Japanese Pickle Roll (Handroll, Temakisushi)

Temaki Sushi is sometimes called a “hand roll” because it is made of a rolled cone of seaweed, wrapped around rice and fillings. The best part (for me as a cook) is that this is a meal where everyone helps themselves.


4 c  sushi rice; see recipe
      4    takuan (japanese pickles);
           -cut in thin strips
      2    sheets nori seaweed


Procedures :  HAND VINEGAR 1 ts rice vinegar
3 tb water
Soy sauce; for dipping

Just before rolling sushi, toast the nori by passing the shiny side over
high flame. The color of the nori will change from brownish black to
green. (Without toasting, the nori will be gummy and hard to chew.)
Cut toasted nori sheets in half crosswise.

Lay a 1/2 a sheet of the nori, shiny side down on a counter. Combine the
rice vinegar and water, and moisten your hands with this hand vinegar to
keep the rice from sticking to your hands as you work. Spread about 1
of the sushi rice on 3/4 of the nori closest to you, in a layer about
inch thick, spreading it to the edges. Lay 1/4 of the pickle slices
the center of the nori. Roll gently, using the fingers and palms of both
hands. Eat immediately, without cutting, and serve the soy sauce as a
dipping sauce.
