Sushi (Futomaki) with salmon and avocado

Have you ever tried to make sushi at home? Is’ very simple and costs immensely less than what it costs in restaurants. I love sushi, I like crazy and then, Since the Japanese restaurants of a certain level have little affordable prices, I decided to learn how to do it at home. And of course since I can do that I prepare my favorite: the futomaki with salmon and avocado. It would take, in truth, even the cucumber (that I like) but my partner hates him, and so the little man but you can, Indeed you have to put it. The futomaki is the simplest sushi: toasted Nori, sushi rice, Wasabi, avocado and fish, in my case salmon, obviously is down’ to reset the bacterial load and avoid pesky pests: many fishmongers slashing the fish on request, But if you want to do it at home and don't have the chiller (that House has none, Neither do I) You can keep it in the freezer for at least 4 days to -17 degrees. The servant with the inevitable soy sauce, I use that with a low salt content, and with more wasabi, for someone like me who loves the spicy. I suggest you prepare this sushi for Valentine's day: is a romantic dish, you eat with chopsticks, It's nice to see and lightweight. I find it a perfect food for a dinner for two. In the video you can see the process dell'arrotolamento, which it is not at all difficult as it seems. On my You Tube Channel Also find the VIDEO STEP BY STEP to make sushi at home.

500 grams of rice for sushi (here the recipe sushi rice)

5 sheets of toasted Nori seaweed

200 grams of fresh salmon already felled in a single slice

1 avocado

1 cucumber

soy sauce, to taste

Wasabi, to taste


Sbucciare l'avocado e farlo a strisce, then cut the salmon into strips. Disporre il foglio di alga sopra l'apposito tappetino per sushi (are fine even those from breakfast made with strips of wood, as long as they are flexible and you can roll up) with the shiny side facing down. With moistened fingers pay a fifth of sushi rice sull'alga, distributing it evenly over the surface and leaving a free space of a centimeter on one long side. Spalmare sulla parte centrale dell'alga un po' di wasabi e disporvi il salmone, l'avocado e il cetriolo (If you like).

Inumidire leggermente la parte di alga rimasta scoperta e arrotolare l'alga su se stessa ben stretta, using the mat for sushi. Cut the roll of sushi in so many rolls of about 2,5 cm thick and serve with soy sauce and more wasabi. If you like, in some supermarkets is also pickled ginger.

MATCHING: A white Friulian is our suggestion for this traditional Japanese dish. Abbiamo scelto lo Chardonnay Doc prodotto dall'azienda Pighin, in the province of Udine: exotic fruits and vanilla are the aromas of this white wine, on the palate, turns out good minerality and structure with a good persistence.

Then you can! I was skeptical but nevertheless I began to study sacred texts on sushi and all repeat that it is very, very difficult. However I still intend to learn it. Seeing this, I know who I can contact if I have any advice in addition in case. They're wonderful friend futomaki! :-)))

Hello Joan! BUT sure you can, If I did, I, they are not nearly the accuracy in person, You can do it better than me. In my opinion is very simple instead. The Scriptures make psychological terrorism, don't listen to him! A hug and good weekend!
