- 2 Sheets – Nori
- 1 Package – Slice of Rice Rice™ RiceWraps
- 1 Piece – Sushi Tuna
- 1-2 TBSP – Flying Fish Eggs
- 6 – Thin Avocado Slices
- Lay the Slice of Rice Rice™ RiceWrap on a sheet of nori. Cut nori down to size.
- Lightly cover rice with flying fish eggs. (Don’t use too much or it’ll squeeze out.)
- With your fingers, roll into a tight cylinder. (This step doesn’t require the use of a rolling mat.)
- Allow to sit for a few minutes so the nori will constrict.
- Cut roll lengthwise into quarters.
- On your second piece of nori, lay two of the quarters side by side, nori side to nori side creating a little V shape.
- Place avocado strips into the V lining the visible nori.
- Place tuna into the V shape on top of the avocado..
- Use the new two roll quarters, nori side to nori side, (rice facing out), to create what will make the final square shape.
- Using your rolling mat, gently but tightly roll the ingredients together while keeping the square shape.
- With a VERY sharp knife, slice off ends of the roll. Then slice into 1cm pieces.
- Serve with soy sauce.
We believe everyone should make their own sushi at least once in their lifetime. It’s just one of those things that makes you appreciate your food more. There is some mad skill that goes into rolling the perfect sushi roll. (A skill we obviously do not possess ourselves). Typically when we make sushi we opt for the Eel & Avocado Inside Out Roll. But, let’s be honest. The most difficult part, or at the very least most time consuming part next to the rolling, is the making of proper sushi rice. It needs to be done just right and there are a bajillion steps you must follow to a T.
That’s where Slice of Rice™ and their RiceWraps come in. For the sushi novice, or your typical lazy home cook who has a bunch of screaming children gnawing at their ankles screaming to be fed at 6pm on the dot, RiceWraps make sushi a cuisine that no longer requires several hours of your time to make. Slice of Rice™ is a brand new company and product currently working on a Kickstarter campaign. Already known to the food and service industry, Chefs that range from Five Star resorts like Chateau Elan in Atlanta to the sky boxes of the major league baseball team Milwaukee Brewers, numerous hotels, colleges, country clubs, restaurants, and casinos all employ the convenience of Slice of Rice.
It’s convenience is incomparable to homemade fresh sushi rice. Slice of Rice™ plans to offer their product in the freezer section of your typical grocery store. Keep it frozen until you’re ready to use, or use it within 7 days after thawing. Just make sure it has reached room temperature before using or rolling a beautiful roll will prove impossible. (We were impatient and threw it into the microwave to defrost for a minute.) Additional benefits of Slice of Rice™ products include no cane sugars, the use of organic vinegar, they’re low sodium, and contain no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or MSG.
Overall, we think it’s a great product for its convenience. Obviously something that is frozen isn’t going to taste quite the same or have the same texture as a fresh product, but for it being frozen, we enjoyed it. Definitely one of those products you can easily keep in your freezer for one of those days when you don’t feel like being too ambitious in the kitchen.
Our inspiration and direction for this recipe came from Make Sushi’s YouTube Video.
