The Prettification of Sushi

Have you like me, wondered what restaurants do with the non symmetrical butt ends of sushi rolls? When we make sushi at home, we don't like to throw away any bit of our hard rolled rolls. I learnt this 'wrap them in egg yolk strips and prettify them' trick from my husband. Not that sushi needs any prettification, but a very simple trick which adds a lot to the presentation value.

For egg yolk strips.
Take 2 eggs, separate yolks from white. Whisk yolks gently ( don't work up a froth!)
Make a thin, round pancake of the yolk on a non stick pan. Look out that it doesn't burn and retains its lovely yellow colour. Take out of pan, cut into 1 centimetre strips and use as wrapping garnish for just about anything!

Once we are done making sushi, we use them to wrap left over slices of tuna and salmon.

  1. OK... Having lived in Turkey for over 4 years, I love Turkish food. and this one in particular. I recently tried to make this myself and it came out pretty good and it's not too hard.

    Its called BOREK! Either meat or Spinach. Its awesome. There are other good Turkish stuff there too. It's all good!
