Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 rolls
For Tempura batter
- 3 1/2 Tbsp all purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp curry powder
- 3-4 oz icy cold soda water or water or beer
- salt and ground pepper
Preparing and Tempura
Slice the sushi grade salmon into thin slices, enough to cover 8" x 2".
Cut the remaining sushi either into slices or stick for tempura.
Prepare the batter by mixing flour, cornstarch, baking powder and curry powder, then sprinkle on some salt and ground pepper to taste. Stir and sift to mix this dry flour.
Dredge all the salmon pieces for tempura into this flour to create an even thin coat of flour mixture.
Dust off excess moisture and set aside.
Pour icy cold water/beer into flour mixture. Stir till fully incorporate.
Heat up the oil in deep fryer or saute pan.
When oil is hot, dip each coated salmon piece into batter and drop into deep-fryer.
Deep fry until golden and crispy before removing all salmon tempura onto parchment paper or strainer to drip off excess oil.
Thinly slice avocado and mini cucumber.
Put into roll
Start with a sheet of nori on a flat surface or bamboo mat (remember to plastic wrap your mat).
Spread 1 cup of sushi rice onto nori, use your finger or spreader to gently press and pan the rice out without mushing.
Flip the nori upside down, so that the sushi rice layer is now facing down on the mat.
Arrange slice cucumber and salmon tempura onto nori.
Lift, roll and tuck nori over ingredients, hold a few second to shape tight then continue to roll and press until finish. Set aside and repeat for the other roll.
Prepare and plastic wrap on a flat surface.
Arrange sliced salmon and avocado nicely to cover the 8" x 2" area on plastic wrap.
Place a roll on top of arrange salmon/avocado.
Now use the plastic wrap to roll & cover all over the roll.
Hold and press along side this roll with bamboo mat to shape, apply pressure lightly.
Set a side and do the same thing for the other roll.
Clean your knife with a dampen towel and cut both rolls.
Gently unwrap each piece out of plastic wrap and place it on plate.
Garnish with some tobiko or masago, drizzle with unagi sauce or spicy mayo.
