Temaki, The Japanese Taco (But Better)
Temaki is commonly called in Sushi restaurants as hand rolled sushi, so chances are if you’ve been in a Sushi restaurant have ordered a Temaki at least one time in your life.
Do You Know Temaki Sushi (Zushi)?
Temaki is commonly called in Sushi restaurants as hand rolled sushi, so chances are even if you didn’t know it if you’ve been in a Sushi restaurant have ordered a Temaki at least one time in your life.
If you’re still confused Temaki is Nori (seaweed) sheet wrapped around the usual sushi ingredients, sashimi grade fish, sushi rice, and vegetables. So in a way one can draw a comparison to the Mexican Taco… minus the tortilla, and the beans… well, they both get the hand rolled treatment.
How To Make One
1. You place a seaweed on your hand (or a roller if there is one), and place some rice on it. Not too much!
2. Choose any ingredient you wish to eat. Tuna? Or a Yellowtail? Perhaps you may want to place a Shiso leaf together.
3. Wrap it up!!
What's Good Of Temaki
A side benefit of ordering Temaki in a Sushi restaurant is that they are just so easy (and fun) to eat! This cone shaped Sushi creation can be easily handled and perfect for those who are not very good at using chopsticks. Let’s face it, although it’s not a complete no-no but using forks and knives in a Sushi restaurant doesn’t really give you that true cultural experience you’d expect eating in a Sushi restaurant, in a way Temaki can help you do that with just your hands.
But then again, if you really want a true cultural experience maybe it’s time to forego you local Sushi joint and book yourself a flight to Japan and have some Temaki like it was meant to be had!
