Aji sushi is one of my favorite Japanese dishes and has a ton of flavor, so I thought I’d share some tips to make it even easier.1.
Make the Jibyoji Salad first.
This is a salad that’s made with jibyo, a traditional Japanese salad made from seaweed.
It’s an easy, quick, and easy way to make the salad.
You can also use an egg white to make a base.
You’ll need:2 cups of seaweed, washed and cut into strips (this will be the base for the salad)1 large onion, diced1 small green bell pepper, diced (optional)2 cloves garlic, minced2 tablespoons olive oil1 tablespoon rice vinegar2 tablespoons soy sauce2 tablespoons brown sugar1/2 cup sugar, packed1/4 cup chopped scallions, thinly sliced (optional1/8 cup rice vinegar)1/3 cup sake, or honey (or water)1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced1/6 cup fresh mint, chopped1 tablespoon sugar, or agave nectar (or honey)1 1/2 cups shredded carrots (or carrots with skin)1 cup cooked cabbage, cooked and rinsed in water1 cup chopped cabbage, rinses and drained2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic1 tablespoon soy sauce1 tablespoon mirin (or soy sauce or soy milk)1 teaspoon sesame oil (or sesame seeds)1 tsp saltFreshly ground black pepper (optionalTo Make the Salad: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the seaweed strips, onion, bell pepper and garlic.
Cook, stirring often, until they are translucent.
Add in the bell pepper.
Cook for a few minutes, until the bell peppers and garlic are tender.
Add some salt and the remaining seaweed and saute for a minute or two more.
Add all the other ingredients to the pot, except the vinegar.
Add a splash of soy sauce and a splash more of soy milk, then bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the jibyushu is cooked through and the rice vinegar has thickened slightly.
Taste and adjust seasonings to your taste.
Remove from heat, drain the rice and serve with rice.
To make a Jiba Jibyushi, combine all the ingredients for the Jiba in a bowl and whisk to combine.
You want the rice to be a thick, creamy, slightly sour-like consistency.
Add to a small bowl and top with more rice.
To make a Soba Jibyaushi, mix all the spices, vinegar, and sugar together in a small mixing bowl and then whisk together.
You’re ready to assemble the salad!1.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the olive, water, rice vinegar, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar.
Add 1/4 of the remaining soy sauce to the jiba and sauté until the rice becomes thick.
Add more soy sauce if needed.3.
Spoon the rice mixture into a ziplock bag.
Place in the fridge to chill for at least 15 minutes.4.
To serve, spoon the rice onto a plate, top with the rest of the ingredients, and top the salad with more sliced cabbage.
To garnish, garnish with scallons and serve immediately.
