Sushi Poppers

Sushi Poppers

These appetizers are tasty, original and do not require one to master the ancient art of Sushi preparation. Replacing the Sushi mat are two more familiar ancient tools: your hands. These one-bite Sushi Poppers are simple to make and with their unique presentation, fun to serve.

What You’ll Need:

Ingredients

1 cup freshly cooked Kokuho Rose® white rice 250 mL
3 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar 45 mL
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds or black sesame seeds [optional] 25 mL
  Assorted diced fillings: mango, smoked salmon, wasabi
peas, tuna, cucumber, shrimp, wasabi
 

Directions

In large shallow dish, spread rice; sprinkle with seasoned rice vinegar and sesame seeds. Using wooden spoon, toss gently to combine (do not stir or rice will clump). Keep rice covered with a damp cloth if not using immediately.

Using wet fingers, place rounded teaspoon of rice in the palm of your hand. Make an indentation in the centre and place desired filling inside. Dip fingers into water and pack rice firmly around filling to make a small ball. Repeat with remaining rice. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds or dot of wasabi, if desired. Cover with plastic wrap and keep at room temperature until ready to serve.

Makes 30 pieces.
