«Ura» means reverse so the «uramaki» is known as sushi upside down. It is a cylindrical variety of medium size, which usually contains two or more fillers. The 'uramaki' differs from the other varieties of sushi because the rice is on the outside, wrapping the nori kelp that is in the inner part (hence the sushi upside down), surrounding the filling. It is usually seasoned with sesame or small roe. The most famous "uramaki" on the planet has its own name: California Roll.
Did you know that the California Roll was created by the Japanese chefs that emigrated to the United States, in order to try to adapt the sushi to the local taste?
1. We will prepare the rice.
2. Peel and cut the cucumber and avocado into thin, elongated strips (the seedless cucumber!).
3. Chop the crab sticks and mix them in a bowl with a little mayonnaise (Japanese, to be able to be).
4. With wet hands, place the nori seaweed leaves on the mat (the bright side always down!) And on them, we are arranging the rice (remember that to seal the roll well, it is advisable to leave unfilled two or Three centimeters at one end of each leaf).
5. Turn the nori leaf over so that the rice is in contact with the mat. Remember that the California Roll is a "uramaki", so the rice will be on the outside of the roll. Before us, the other side of the nori seaweed will now be completely empty.
6. Right in the middle of the nori, we will extend a line of rice, and on it we will place the avocado, the cucumber and the mixture of crab and mayonnaise.
7. We will roll rice, seaweed and mix using the mat covered with film paper.
8. Sprinkle the sushi pieces with the toasted sesame seeds. And do not forget the ginger, the soy sauce and the wasabi!
