Easy sushi: Temakizushi

Temakizushi is a type of sushi that appears like an ice cream cone but filled with sushi ingredients. The shell is nori seeweed and has sushi rice as its first layer. Other ingredients are added such as fish, shrimp, eel or scallop. These ingredients are nicely sliced (quarter inch strips) so it can be laid nicely on the rice. Don’t forget the veggies! Veggies like sprouts, cucumbers, avocado and pickle daikon radish are a popular choice.

Use mayonnaise and a bit of wasabi to flavor the sushi.

The best part of Temakizushi is that you can use your hands to eat it and another plus is that it is easier to roll into a cone than doing it the traditional maki style roll.
