About Gunkan maki

gunkan sushi
The Gunkan-maki sushi is a lot easier to make than classic or I/O sushi. The following flash illustrated guide will show you just how easier.

 

Ingredients Gunkan maki

  Servings: 8 units. Preparation time: 10 min.
  • Properly prepared sushi rice (more)
  • Nori
  • Fish roe. Either: Tobiko (flying fish roe), ikura (salmon roe), kazunoko (herring roe) or masago (smelt roe)

How to make Gunkan maki sushi

 

"Nori preparations"

Take a regular nori sheet and cut a long strip of it. Cut it about 4 cm high long strip.
        

 

"Getting busy with rice"

Make a ball of rice, about the size of ping-pong ball, and place it in the center of the nori. It should be in one line with the lower margins of the nori strip, since it is about to make a base for the gunkan maki.
        

"The cover-up."

Cover it up. Gently but tightly, close the nori on the rice ball from all around it, squeezing it a bit to make the nori glue well with the rice.

 

        

 

"I don't give a flying fish!"

Take a tablespoonful of Tobiko (flying fish roe), ikura (salmon roe), kazunoko (herring roe) or masago (smelt roe). It is suggested to use fish roe in this dish, but sushi is all about creativity.

 

Step 5 - "Well done!"

Ikura is about 50$ for 1 kg
tobikko and masago are much cheaper.

Ingredients are
properly prepared sushi rice
Nori
Ikura

ikura gunkan-maki is good. but it is even better with a quail egg cracked into it.
enjoy!

A traditional method for securing nori to nori:

Smear a single grain of rice inside the overlapping edge of nori. This provides a glue. Press the smeared end onto the previously wrapped nori.

This technique is also used for hand-rolls.

A dab of water will help glue one end of the nori strip to the other.

Pressing the nori hard against the rice will compact the rice too much, turning it into a clump. Sushi chefs handle the rice as little as possible to avoid this.

The dab of water is used when making hand-rolls also.

If the nori doesn't glue by itself you might wanna close it with your hands wet and press it firmly.
