Special Shrimp Gunkanmaki - Battleship Sushi Roll

Special Shrimp Gunkanmaki - Battleship Sushi Roll created by Lille

A battleship shaped version of nigiri sushi has a ribbon of nori seaweed wrapped vertically around the rice and toppings. Inspired by Sushi: Easy Recipes for Making Sushi at Home by Emi Kazuko, Fiona Smith and Elsa Petersen-Schepelern and a special scallop sushi I had in a Calgary restaurant, long since closed. "Special" usually refers to the use of mayonnaise in the filling.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix the salad shrimp, kiwi fruit, mayonnaise and ginger in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Cut each sheet of nori into 1" wide ribbons, for a total of 12 ribbons.
  • Mix 1 cup of water with the rice vinegar in a small bowl and set aside to use as hand vinegar, to rinse your hands and keep the rice from sticking to them.
  • Dip your hands in the hand vinegar and take 1-2 tablespoons of the cooked rice in one hand. Mold it into a rectangular mound and 2 x 3/4 x 1 1/4" high. Wrap a nori ribbon around it, overlapping about 3/4" at the end. Glue it together with a grain of vinegared rice. Put a heaping teaspoon of the shrimp salad mixture on top. Repeat to make 12 pieces.
  • Serve with pickled ginger, soy sauce and wasabi.

    This is the first Non-vegetarian Sushi I have ever liked! it's not too fishy and has just the right amount of sweetness. I served with Wasabi peas which really took it to another level
