Method
  • ETAPE 1

    To make the seasoning, place the vinegar, sugar and salt in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and stir until the ingredients are dissolved.

  • ETAPE 2

    Place the rice in a colander and wash thoroughly under cold running water. Leave the rice to soak in a saucepan with the 550ml of water for 30 minutes.

  • ETAPE 3

    Bring the rice to the boil and then reduce to a low simmer. Cover with a lid and cook without stirring for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside, covered, for another 10 minutes.

  • ETAPE 4

    Place the rice in a large bowl. Pour the vinegar seasoning over the rice and mix the seasoning through the rice. Continue turning the rice for a couple of minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to cool to room temperature before serving.

  • ETAPE 5


    Skin the fillets of sea bass and cut into small strips.

  • ETAPE 6

    Cut the cucumber into strips and leave to soak in the rice wine vinegar, sugar and turmeric for 15 minutes.

  • ETAPE 7

    Place half a sheet of seaweed on a sushi mat. Spread the rice onto the seaweed with a little wasabi and the strips of sea bass and cucumber. Season with soy sauce and sprinkle on some sesame seeds.

  • ETAPE 8

    Roll by hand and slice into portions, cleaning the knife each time to avoid tearing the seaweed.

Chef's tip

«To create a perfect combination of flavours, season the soy sauce with garlic, rice vinegar and lime juice.»
