What you need:
1 piece leftover salmon fillet (about 3 oz), skin removed
3/4 cup cooled cooked Mahatma® Sushi Rice
2 tsp mayonnaise
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sriracha hot sauce
1 sheet crispy nori (seaweed)
1 baby cucumber, ends trimmed and cut into six 3 1/2 x 1/4-inch sticks
How to prepare it: In large shallow bowl, mash salmon fillet with a fork. Top with rice and drizzle with mayonnaise, soy sauce and sriracha. Mix with fork until well combined. Spread salmon mixture onto nori sheet in an even layer, leaving 1/2-inch border. Arrange cucumber sticks on bottom portion of rice. Starting from the long side, tightly roll into a log. Cut roll into 10 portions, each about 1/2 inch thick.
Tip: You can even substitute cucumber with avocado slices, red pepper slices or carrot sticks!
There are plenty of ways to Revive Leftover Rice. With ice and a microwave, you’re only 1 minute away from that irresistible fluffy texture!
Simply pop a cube on your leftovers and top with parchment paper and voila! Surprisingly, the ice cube won’t melt, it will merely steam your grains. An effortless way to get that mouth-watering texture of moist grains! Just make sure to toss the cube once you take it out of the microwave.
If you don’t have Japanese Mayonnaise, you can whip up a sauce with a similar flavor. Using the ratio of 1 cup American mayonnaise to 2 tablespoons rice vinegar to 1 tablespoon sugar, you can get a similar umami flavor. It won’t be quite as rich, but it’ll do in a pinch.
