I have discovered sushi only in recent years. Growing up in Italy, it wasn’t something I had great exposure to. Now Japanese food (and sushi above all) has become very popular in Italy, but it is really expensive. Australia instead is full of sushi bars and amazing Japanese joints, so eating sushi has become much more accessible to me. If you know Manu’s Menu though, you will also know that when I like something, I always try to recreate it at home. I love being able to “conquer” new dishes and cuisines. So a little while ago I made my first sushi rice and I shared with you the recipe for my Spicy Tuna Salad Sushi Roll. It was a success, so I decided to keep experimenting. Salmon Nigiri is something I always order when eating sushi. It is one of my favourite! So… here goes my version! You won’t belive how easy it is to make your own: all you need is seasoned sushi rice, wasabi and VERY FRESH salamon… that’s it! Enjoy!
- 2 cups cooked sushi rice, seasoned (recipe here)
- Sushi Grade Salmon, sliced into 10 thin slices
- Soy Sauce, to serve
- Pickled ginger, to serve
Ask your fishmonger to slice the salmon for better results.
