Here is another very easy way to make sushi, from Kansai, and the result is guaranteed: here are OSHIZUSHI or pressed sushi.
It also allows you to make the magnificent sushi mosaics that are very trendy these days.
You can choose all types of ingredients, and not necessarily raw fish. For example, add beef carpaccio, raw ham, seasoned vegetables... it all depends on your desire and your imagination.
It makes very nice little starters during holiday meals.
Shiori therefore offers you sushi molds to make Oshizushi.
There are 2 models depending on what you want to do:
in the photo the small mold is in the foreground. Each Mold contains three elements: a base, a frame and a tamper lid.
How to make pressed sushi with these molds:
- Prepare vinegared rice for sushi.
- Cut and slice the ingredients.
- Wet the mold, then put the ingredients in it. Add the vinegared rice.
- Press well with the lid.
- Unmold and decorate the sushi.
Another recipe? Here are some ideas:
100% hinoki wood (Japanese Cypress)
Hinoki is known in Japan for its antibacterial properties and its very relaxing natural fragrance.
The woody scent of hinoki will make your cooking time very pleasant.
Before making sushi, be sure to wet all the parts of the mold with water each time you use it (if the mold is dry, the rice will stick to the mold because the wood absorbs its moisture).
After use, wash by hand in lukewarm water (avoid washing with very hot water so as not to risk deforming the wood).
Hinoki is a naturally antibacterial material. Wash with a sponge without dishwashing liquid. That said, you can wash with salt or white vinegar if there remains a fishy smell, for example.
Not suitable for the dishwasher!
Before storing the mold, please air dry each part in a ventilated area. Drying in the sun will damage the wood.
