Ren’s California Maki
My 11 year old son has a lot of plans and dreams in mind. He wants to be a dubber or a voice over (kasi madaming nagsasabi na ang ganda ng boses nya sa YouTube channel nya). He also likes to be a chef and as of now, he has a lot of food dishes that wants to try.
I asked him last week to list down all the ingredients of the dishes he wants to do. He was so excited that he wrote down 4 items. It’s nice that he has his own money (from his YouTube channel) and that’s what we used to buy the ingredients.
Today we decided to do the California Maki recipe first, baka kasi masira na yung mangga hehe.
Unfortunately, we were not able to buy the ebiko (can’t find one), so we just skipped this ingredient. We are not into wasabi too, so we did not purchase one.
Here are the ingredients:
4 tbsp mirin (rice wine)
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
4 cup Japanese cooked rice
Nori (seweed paper)
Here’s the procedure:
- Mix mirin, sugar and salt.
- Pour the mirin mixture to the rice and then fold using wooden spoon.
- Make sure to wrap the sushi mat with cling wrap.
- Lay the nori sheet into the mat (shiny side down). Cover the entire sheet with rice. Then flip over.
- Place the crabstick, mayonnaise, mangoes and cucumber. Using the mat as a guide, carefully roll the California roll into a tight log. Remove the rolling mat.
- Cut into half and roll it to ebiko (if available). Then cut it to either 8 or 6 equal portion.
- Serve it with soy sauce and wasabi if desire.
Finished product! Masarap naman in fairness.
Kapag na perfect nya ‘to magtitinda daw sya. This is actually a nice idea for kid’s snacks or baon at school.
Can you help me where can I find some ebiko?
