    mianbao's Note:

    Not what people usually think of when they hear sushi. These are pouches made of fried tofu, that are stuffed with sushi rice. Along with the nori (black seaweed) sushi rolls, this is a cheap and popular type of sushi. From Shinkatei Hyakkajiten Vol. 1, Kodan-sha, 1967. Aburage is fried slices of tofu that can be bought in stores that sell Japanese food. They are often sold 2 pieces to a package, but are also available in Japan in a form that has already been opened into pouches for this sushi. For this recipe, 20 pieces, or 40 half pieces, are necessary.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the aburage in half horizontally, and carefully separate the sides of the cut section with your fingers to form a pouch.
    2. 2
      To remove excess oil, place the aburage into a large heat-proof bowl in the sink and pour about 1 to 2 liters of boiling water over them, stirring to expose all pieces; drain into a colander, rinse with cold water and gently squeeze out the water.
    3. 3
      Combine the sugar, soy sauce and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Add the aburage and cook over medium heat, stirring from time to time, until well flavored; remove from heat and let cool.
    5. 5
      If using, toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan, and mix into the sushi rice.
    6. 6
      Gently squeeze out the liquid from a piece of aburage; scoop up a portion of rice about the size of an egg, in one hand, and stuff it into the aburage pouch.
    7. 7
      Fold over the cut ends, press lightly to shape, and place cut side down on a serving dish.
    8. 8
      Garnish with pickled ginger.

      A tasty variation on this recipe is to replace the soy sauce with sushi vinegar. Obviously far less salty and the vinegar and the sugar blend for a very pleasant flavor.

      I also garnish HEAVILY with pickled ginger.

      These are so good. A nice sweet flavor. Thanks for a great recipe. Now I no longer have to buy these when craving them.

      This did not turn out well. I am not sure what happened. I ended up with a soggy, salty mess that went into the trash. I did find out that our Oriental Market sells pre-made Aburage, so I ended up using that. I stuffed it with rice, then placed a piece of avocado on top and then topped with spicy mayonnaise (mayonnaise mixed with siracha). That was amazing!
