For those who have tried sushi and love it, and wish you could make nigirizushi at home, here is a cool and easy trick that is also, (on topic), a great way to serve delicious, healthy and inexpensive snack food or appetizers:
Sushi isn't all raw fish. It can literally be *anything*!
Use about one ounce of meat per/bite and:
Cut the meat so that it's about One inch wide by one and a half long.
Make one piece for each piece of ball sushi you want.
Prepare your sushi rice
Wet your hands and make a ball of rice that is about the largest single bite you'd be comfortable eating in one bite.
Put the meat into the middle of a piece of plastic wrap about 6 inches square.
Then put that ball of rice right on top of the meat and fold the plastic wrap around the meat/rice combo.
The twist the ball until it presses the rice/meat into a nice firm ball.
Then unwrap it and it's ready to plate or eat.
Eat within 15 minutes of making it. The rice will get dry and nasty.
I've done this with many, many foods.
Rare steak (Best if frozen first and sliced very, very thin.)
cooked canned tuna
You name it, I've probably tried it.
You can also put a few pieces of shredded veggies and/or cheeses on the meat first, then rice.
It's limited only to your imagination and appitite.
