Ebi Nigiri Sushi



I made this a few months ago, but didn't really have the motivation to post it until today, at least it's a change from my bento posts...:).

I prefer making sushi rolls (maki) because I find it easier to make and less time-consuming, but I like having nigiri sushi too from time to time. My favourite topping for nigiri sushi is boiled shrimps.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups sushi rice (short grain)
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Boiled shrimps
  • Wasabi
Directions
  • Wash the rice well and drain the water.
  • Cook sushi rice with 2 1/2 cups of water in a rice cooker.
  • After the rice is cooked, add rice vinegar, salt and sugar. Mix well with a rice paddle.
  • Form the rice into ovals (use saran wrap to prevent sticking) after the rice has cooled down.
  • Add a dab of wasabi to each rice ball and top it off with boiled shrimp.
