A sushi burrito, as the name might, suggest is a Japanese delicacy that has become a household name, not only in the United States, but the entire world in general thanks to its nutritional nature (blending carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, herbal attributes) and simplicity when it comes to its preparation not forgetting its highly customizable to suit anyone’s taste. There is no better way to confirm this as fact other than by preparing one for ourselves. Below are the steps to follow when preparing a sushi burrito.
1: Prepare Your Rice
First things first, roll the bamboo mat on a flat surface and place the seaweed (nori) on top of it. After that place your flavored sushi rice evenly on top of it in such a way that the rice is evenly distributed to avoid any inconvenience during the rolling process with the bamboo mat.
2: Slice Your Vegetables
In this section you are really spoiled for choice. You can choose from a wide variety of your favorite vegetables, but in this case we are going to work with cucumber, tomato. Slice them into small chunks and place them on top of the rice.
3: Prepare the Protein of your Choice
In order to get the best out of your sushi burrito, it is recommended you choose a fresh source of protein. This may be fish or beef, just ensure it’s fresh from the source. I plan to use fresh salmon so cut the salmon into slices and flavor it, preferably with ginger, green onions, and some sesame oil.
4: Add Toppings or Sauces
As we said earlier, a sushi burrito is highly customizable and what you choose as your toppings are not fixed to certain ingredients, you can just toss in whatever comes to mind. The best combination of toppings will leave you mesmerized while others, well, not so much. So be considerate in this case. Cilantro is a great combination with these vegetables and this choice of protein.
5: Roll your Sushi Burrito Using A Bamboo Mat
This step is as important as all the above, in fact, you should pay more attention to this step since one mistake will have your entire sushi burrito on the floor. Using both of your hands roll the bamboo mat slowly and steadily while at the same time distributing the pressure along the length evenly. After that well, it’s just about time!
6: Enjoy your Sushi Burrito
Finally, if you followed every step to the letter you will not be disappointed by what you will experience when you put that sushi burrito in your mouth. In this case, you can choose to cut it into two or you can just serve it whole, the choice is up to you.
Ensuring that your ingredients (such as vegetables and source of protein) are fresh is a great way to get the most out of your sushi burrito. You should ensure that you prepare your sushi rice a few minutes earlier to ensure that it maintains its tender touch, which will go a long way in making this delicacy. I hope you don’t forget that we are eating this protein raw so preparatory steps are of essence. What else do you like in your sushi burrito? Tell us today.
