Inside Out Sushi Roll (California Roll)

0 comments

 

 

Inside out rolls are also called uramaki rolls. This is our version that we call Californication.

 

PROCESS:

 

Inside Out California Rolls:

For inside out rolls we need to wrap the bamboo mat in plastic wrap

hold the mat between your stomach and the plastic wrap box

pull out the wrap and tuch against your stomach…

wrap the plastic around the mat twice

leave the wrap end on the back side of the mat away from the sushi

roll the mat up like this and squeeze to release excess air

 

You may also pull the plastic on the table and wrap the mat like this

It won’t be as tight, but it will work, roll the mat and squeeze out the excess air

 

Lets make an inside out California roll:

Wet hands. Grab a loose ball of rice, tap the nori with the rice to pick it up… place on the cutting board, push rice across the nori, use your fingers kinda like typing. Cover the entire piece of nori, be sure the center of the nori is completely covered because that side will be up and most important for presentation, sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds, flip the nori and rice over, so it is nori side up, top with slices of avocado, crab and thinly sliced cucumbers. It’s cool to allow some of each to come out over the ends of the nori

 

You don’t need a roller… roll the sushi, just go back and forth and be sure to tuck the ends, finish the roll, now top with the wrapped bamboo mat and squeeze to tighten. To cut inside our rolls, we need a wet knife blade.

 

Dip the knife tip in the bowl and angle the tip up… the water will run down the entire blade, slice the roll in half - slice each half in half, re-dip your knife and slice each of those in half. We want 8 slices - wet hands and arrange sushi on serving plate,

serve with pickled ginger, and wasabi

 

For a cool top garnish on your sushi:

Take the avocado we sliced and shingled and un-wrap it part way, place it on the sushi wrap still on the top. Place an un-wrapped bamboo mat on the plastic and press to tighten. We don’t want plastic on the mat and the avocado, because they’ll stick together leaving the plastic wrap on the avocado, wet your knife and slice thru the plastic and the sushi, remove the plastic and re-tighten the roll with the mat, sprinkle with sesame seeds, wet hands and arrange on a serving platter, finish with pickled ginger, wasabi and some awesome shiso sauce. This is an inside out California roll with shiso sauce
