myFresha-licious: Salmon & Fake-Crabstick Uramaki

Salmon & Fake-Crabstick Uramaki

Frederick and I share the same liking for Salmon, sashimi, and sushi that everythime we get a chance at fresh salmon, we make our own sashimi and sushi. 

Today, we are posting our salmon uramaki.  It’s another type of sushi.  Uramaki literally means “inside-out roll.  This refers to the fact that the nori is inside and the rice is outside.    We wrapped the fillings we used with the nori then we wrapped the nori with rice.  We didn’t have any other ingredients to coat the uramaki, so for some uramaki, we left the rice as is (uncoated) and the rest we wrapped with nori again.

We made another type of sushi last month  which is the futomaki, where in the nori is used to wrap the rice cylinder.  Check this for the recipe – Salmon-Crabstick Futomaki
