Temaki SushiTemaki are cone-shaped hand rolls traditionally eaten at the sushi counter as quickly as the sushi chef can produce them. They are also a perfect party piece. Invite your friends to make their own – all you need to do is prepare the ingredients and show them how. Any maki filling is suitable for temaki.
1. Cut the nori straight down the middle, so that each sheet gives two rectangular pieces. Lay the first sheet of nori shiny-side down on the work surface. Place 50g of cooked sushi rice in a round, flat circle on the left side of the nori. Then stick 2-3 rice grains in the bottom right-hand corner of the nori to help seal the temaki later.
2. Smear a dab of wasabi in the centre of the circle of rice.
3. Lay your chosen filling diagonally across the middle of the rice so that it sticks out at the top left-hand corner.
4. Lift the bottom left-hand bottom corner of the nori up and across the filling, roling the temaki over into a cone.
5. Use the rice that you previously stuck in the bottom right-hand corner to seal the nori.
6. Hand the finished temaki straight to your guests, or place on a serving plate, and repeat the process with the remaining ingredients.
