Salmon-Crabstick Futomaki










My husband and I decided to go raw and healthy for dinner last night.  So we had salmon-crab stick futomaki.  It was really delicious and though I had only 6 pieces of it and the rest are my husband’s plus of course the salmon sashimi, it was filling.  Both our tummies and palates are satisfied.

Futomaki, by the way is a thick sushi roll with 2 or more fillings and the rice is wrapped with nori and the nori is on the outside of the rice.  That differentiates it from Hosomaki which is wrapped and rolled the same way but only contains 1 filling and from Uramaki that has 2 or more fillings but the nori is found on the inside and the rice outside.

So while Frederick is slicing the salmon fillet for the sashimi and some for our futomaki, I’m busy rolling the sushi.  Here’s our simple recipe.

Ingredients:

Nori – 2 sheets
Salmon, thinly slice (1.5 x 0.5 inches) - 100 g
Crab stick, immitation, sliced lengthwise - 3 sticks
Mayonnaise - 1 1/2 tbsp
Wasabi paste – to taste

Sushi Rice

Rice, cooked – 1 1/2 cup
Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 1/2 tbsp

Sushi Dip

Kikkoman light soy sauce – 3 tbsp
Kalamansi juice from 2 kalamansi fruits
Wasabi paste – as desired


Cooking Procedure:

1. Sushi Rice :  Mix the cooked rice and vinegar.
2. Sushi Sauce :  Mix all the ingredients for the sauce
3.  Futomaki assembly:
- Place a nori sheet on top of a bamboo mat.
- Spread half of the sushi rice on top of the nori.  The rice should occupy 1/3 of the sheet
- Mix the mayonnaise and wasabi paste (as desired) togethher. Spread 1/2 of the mayonnaise-wasabi mixture on top of the rice.
- Place the crab sticks (3 slices) and salmon (3 slices) on top of the rice.
-  Roll up the bamboo mat, pressing it forward to shape the rice mixture into a cylinder.  Removed the sushi from the bamboo mat and slice it into smaller pieces.

Makes  2 rolls = 16 pcs of futomaki . Here’s the estimated Nutritional values per piece based on the ingredients used.  Good for 2-3 persons  :-)
