How to make Maki Sushi Roll #8
Making a simple style Maki Sushi. Ingredients: Salt Salmon(Trout), Crab Sticks and Avokado. I prefer salt Trout fish, sometimes I prepare it myself, but mostly I buy from the store already salted Trout. Since I live by the sea it is easy to get Fresh fish, thus I never use the fish sold in packed plastic bags.
Here you see how I have placed ingredients on prepared nori. A few pieces of salt salmon under crab sticks and Avokado.
Here is an important part. You will have to tighten the roll. The idea is simple, if you ever had a scroll and wanted to make it smaller in diameter, what did you do? You pressed and rolled it inside. Use the same method, pull the bended part towards yourself and try to make the inside rice to stick to each other. As soon as you tightened the side of the roll, carefully roll the whole thing. If you don’t tighten the roll enough all ingredients will fall out when you cut the roll.
Use some strength to tighten the roll a bit more.
Sometimes ingredients may come out if you press too hard, usually it is avocado or crab stick, so use your fingers to place things back.
This is what you get… but it is not the end yet.
This is the last part. Make sure you wet the whole roll. Take the roll in left hand, wet your second hand and spread the water, until the whole Roll looks wet. The reason behind is to make Nori soft, if you skip this process the Nori will be hard to chew. When you are done place a roll on the clean dry plate and go for the next one. Skip this step if you are making California Roll ^.^
