I am so excited to kick off my sushi series and share this beautiful yellowtail mini sushi cake with you!
The diced yellowtail is marinated with soya, yuzu ponzu, finely chopped jalapeños, spring onion and red pepper. I flavoured the sushi rice with sushi vinegar, soya and furikake. A Japanese seasoning made up of sesame seeds, salted shiso leaf and nori (seaweed), the furikake and soya give the rice the perfect seasoning so you don’t miss the taste of the seaweed or need to dip in soya sauce. Ribbons of cucumber were wrapped around the top of the cake giving another dimension of texture and vibrancy.
