Every time we go to my dad's for dinner, he always has a million packets of seasoned nori (seaweed). It is pretty much the same seaweed you buy when you make sushi, however they are crunchy, seasoned and are cut into smaller squares. They are a typical Japanese and Korean snack, eaten like we would potato chips, they even remind me of kale chips!
There is not one time we have eaten these and have said "If only he had some hot rice!" Well, today, finally, I made an effort to cook some rice and try it out. Let me tell you, they tasted like heaven!
The recipe below is purely a guide, add in whatever you like, it's basically seasoned nori and rice. If I had some avocado, capsicum or cucumber lying around that would have been great too.
|This is the brand we buy, I have no idea what it say as it in in Korean! |
We bought ours from Panmure Fresh aka Silverbell!
1-2 packs of seasoned nori
1 cup cooked white rice
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon coconut sugar
Spring (green) onion
Japanese Mayo (this is a bonus)
1. Cook white asian rice (Japanese, jasmine etc.) using the absorption method in a rice cooker. I use this ration 1:2 - so 1 cup of rice : 2 cups hot water.
2. Once rice is cooked mixed one cup of rice with soy sauce, vinegar and coco sugar.
3. Place rice on a plate and top with your choice of garnishes.
4. Assemble you lazy sushi as you eat, sort of like how you would eat tacos!
