Sushi How To!
Making sushi is easy when you follow this spicy shrimp for sushi rolls recipe. Make sure that all your ingredients are out on the counter. Start off by placing the frozen salad shrimp, easily purchased out of your stores freezer section, in to the colander and moving it around under cool flowing water. Full-sized shrimp can be used as well, and raw shrimp could be steamed up in the rice steamer. Run water over the shrimp until they are defrosted, this generally takes about three minutes. Allow the shrimp to dry after which put them on the cutting board.
Provide the shrimp a rough chop until you have achieved the size you like. I favor to chop them into thirds, but there is no exact science for the best size. It is all based on your preference. That's the beautiful thing about making sushi in your own home, you can decide exactly how much of every ingredient to increase to make the best sushi. I like the taste and feel of the larger chunks of shrimp in my sushi rolls, so I tend to use the rough chop method when making sushi.
Now we are going to add the srirachi hot sauce to taste. I personally use this sauce in most of my spicy sushi recipes. Add this for your own taste; this is slightly different for everybody. Next I add the creamy Hellman’s mayonnaise which adds a creamy flavor to our spicy shrimp recipe. Finally, add the masago fish eggs. I add those to all of my spicy shrimp and spicy crab recipes, and feel that it's one of the best compliments to any recipe when creating sushi in your own home. Some people prefer to leave out the masago and that's okay, the spicy shrimp recipe will be great with or without it.
Place all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl, gently and thoroughly mix them together. Allow the spicy shrimp recipe to be placed in the fridge for 15-30 minutes. Meanwhile prepare other parts for that sushi roll that you're making. Precisely why I love this recipe, other than its amazing balanced taste and mixture of flavors, is that it goes well with any sushi recipe when you are making sushi. Enjoy the sushi Rolls!
