Chirashi Sushi

Using avocado and marinated tuna turns the ordinary chirashi into something special. If you have time, marinate the tuna for couple of hours in a fridge for the perfect taste. Use a gluten-free soy sauce to make this a gluten-free dish.

sushi rice

  2. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 to 8 minutes.
  3. Set aside (you can make this a night before and keep in a fridge till you use).

kinshi egg

  1. Beat egg and mix with sugar and salt. Mix well and run through strainer.
  2. Heat up a small frying pan over medium heat and pour 1/2 of mixture into the pan. Cook for 1 minute and flip over to cook another side for 1 min.
  3. Repeat this to cook another one. Roll up the cooked egg and slice very thinly

marinated tuna

  1. In a small pot, add soy sauce, mirin and cooking sake and bring to boil to get rid of alcohol.
  2. Remove from heat and marinate tuna in the sauce for 30 minutes or longer once the liquid has cooled down.

To assemble, squeeze the liquid out from shiitake and carrots and mix with sushi rice. Put the rice in the serving plate / bowl. Spread the thinly sliced egg on top of the rice. Decorate the Chirashi with avocado, marinated tuna, tokiko and garnish with shredded nori.
