I cooked some'en: Egged goodness sushi

edited 2:18PM in EggHead Forum
Well got my new Hattori knife in today so why not something Japanese? :woohoo:

A little shrimp and tuna on the Egg to get some good smoke flavor with a lot of presimmon wood. Not really cook'en the fish as you can see just imparting the flavor. ;)

Off the Egg and cut up for filling.

Some fresh ginger and ready to roll.

Ready to eat. Got graveyards next two so hope every one has a good one!

    Wow that looks reeeeaaalllll good. :P

    The trick with the rice is to make sure you get short grain sushi rice, wash it well, and splash the mirin on it before cooling. Mirin is really just sugared vinegar but it seems to help get the right amount "stick" to the rice.

    Good sushi rice sticks together but melts apart on your tongue.

    That really looks good, what are you doing to the ginger, pickling it? -RP

    Never have been a raw fish fan (thought it was for bait :blink: ) but the wife is drooling over your pics. Thanks for the post now my wife wants me to uncook fish for her on the Egg :angry:. Just messing with you JL that looks great and not kidding about the wife's comments. Nice job.

    Great looking knife. I would not use that cutting board. You need something with end grain wood. Trust me on this one.

    Hey Bill, now that IS a cutting board! Being that the "little chef" uses very high end Japanese knifes in her job, I have had to learn and aquire the tools, to sharpen her knifes. check out
    very good company, direct from japan and you will not belive how inexpensive they are.

    Got to get short grain sushi rice. One cup rice washed till water is clear 1 1/4 cup h2o. Bring to boil then simmer low for 25 min. Remove then and blend in your rice vinigar. Wet hands when adding to seaweed paper. Just looks hard.
  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    Yep fresh ginger sliced thin boiled low in equal parts vinigar,h20 and sugar till tender. Can add or reduce sugar for taste.

    At work now and fixing to get it. Floor job tonight and 30k of product to bag in 55 lb bags by hand tonight. Going to need more than saki in the morning. Can you say 100% blue agava! ;) The knife is great. So nice to be able to draw slices of tuna thin instead of sawing! :laugh: Send those links when you get a chance. It wan't stay sharp for ever. :(

    Very impressive! Very creative! Very skilled! I would love to have that meal. Thanks.
  • Big'unBig'un Posts: 5,909
    Very Nice! I personally love the wasabi with my sushi(even though the powdered stuff I buy is actually horseradish with green dye). If you skewer the shrimp prior to cooking, they will remain straight. It looks like you made a "pouch" of some type. How did you do that? It looks good. Great job!
  • Big'unBig'un Posts: 5,909
    I had trouble with rice for a while. I bought a rice cooker, and it got real easy. After rinsing, the rice cooker even makes that toasted rice that is very desireable as well. I only wish I used it more.
