The delicate flavors of these Italian sushi morsels will have you wondering why you’ve never thought of this fusion yourself! Our Mahatma® Medium Grain Arborio Rice combined with Romano blended cheese, thin-sliced prosciutto, and roasted red peppers – it’s the perfect combination of flavors.
Combine the cooked rice, cheese, half & half and basil in a bowl. Place 1 prosciutto slice on cutting board; spread ½ cup rice mixture evenly over prosciutto, pressing slightly.
Arrange a few pepper strips lengthwise down center over rice. Carefully roll into a log. Repeat with remaining prosciutto slices.
Cover and refrigerate at least 15 minutes.
Cut each roll crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Place on platter cut-side up. Serve at room temperature.
Want a showstopping dish that will really impress your guests? We’ve got two words: Italian Sushi – Japanese-style cooking meets savory Italian flavors.
This ingenious fusion combines our sticky medium grain arborio rice, blended with Romano blended cheese, cream and spread evenly over thin prosciutto slices. Interspersed with freshly chopped basil leaves and pepper, the rice is wrapped tightly in the prosciutto making perfect bite-size sushi morsels.
To add a tempura-like crunch to your new sushi rolls, chop garlic into thick slices and fry in a pool of hot oil until they turn golden brown. Without burning the garlic slices, remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain excess oil before adding to the sushi. If you’re not a fan of garlic, simply use french fried onions to top each slice.
