Inside Out Sushi

Inside Out Sushi

Posted 2014-07-28 by Marlies@mbkeditfollow
Having seen the great variety of sushi now available in shopping centres and even in some supermarkets, my daughter decided she would like to try making this ‘inside out’ sushi. It is just as easy as making the traditional nori rolls but looks a bit more interesting with the rice filling on the outside.

Instead of tuna, you can use any other filling such as smoked salmon and avocado, teryaki chicken or mixed parboiled julienne vegetables. To give your sushi a little more bite, spread some wasabi on the nori sheet before adding the filling.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

  • 300g sushi rice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • yaki nori sheets
  • 425g can tuna
  • 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • sesame seeds, dry roasted in a frying pan

  • Method
  • Wash sushi rice thoroughly and cook according to instructions on pack.
  • Dissolve salt and sugar in rice wine vinegar.
  • When rice is cooked, place a tea towel between pot and lid and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Turn rice out into a shallow dish. Mix vinegar mixture with the rice and leave until completely cooled.
  • Mix tuna with mayonnaise. If tuna seems a little dry, add some more mayonnaise.
  • Place nori sheet on a cutting board. Use the back of a wet spoon to spread a single layer of rice evenly on top, covering the entire sheet.

  • Turn over onto baking paper. Place three tablespoons of tuna mix in the middle of the roll, spreading from left to right out to both edges.

  • Add tuna mix

  • Tightly roll up the nori sheet, including the baking paper. Pull the baking paper out from the roll after one rotation. Keep pulling out the baking paper from underneath whilst rolling (see photo), until the end of the nori.
