1/2 Photos of Tamago Yaki (Sushi Omelette)
Tamago is Japanese for "egg". Tamago yaki is sushi using an egg, like a sushi omelette. I really love it for it's sweet taste and light texture. You need a tamago pan to make this recipe. Any type of stock can be used in place of the dashi for a less fishy taste. Sounds complicated, but after a bit of practice, it gets much easier.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Beat the eggs VERY well, being sure to get them as smooth as possible.
- 2Pour about 1/4 of the mixture into a well-oiled tamago pan and spread as if you are making a crepe.
- 3As the mixture cooks, bubbles and sets, roll it and move it to the back of the pan.
- 4Add more oil to the pan and some more of the mixture, making sure to get some under the roll.
- 5As it cooks, roll the old roll back to the front of the pan, then again to the back.
- 6Repeat until you are out of mixture.
- 7Remove roll from the pan and roll as you would a sushi roll, squeezinng out excess liquid.
- 8You can roll it into either a round or rectangular shape and slice it when it has cooled.
- 9Can be served as is, or as nigiri, atop a mound of rice wrapped in a thin sheet of nori.
