Helen's Asian Kitchen Plastic Sushi Mat (makisu) properly forms and shapes delicious hand roll sushi (makizushi) without tearing delicate seaweed (nori sheets).
Made from polypropylene, it's super durable, lightweight, non-absorbent, and will not mildew. Easier to clean than bamboo mats, the non-sticky, non-permeable surface requires no plastic wrap covering. Sushi is a favorite finger food in Japan and popular worldwide. Whether learning how to make sushi rolls or perfecting favorite sushi recipes, making sushi couldn't be easier. Simply place -sheet of nori, shiny side down on the mat. Add -cup sushi rice, leaving 1-inch uncovered. Add fillings to the center and roll mat toward uncovered edge. Gently squeeze to seal the roll, remove mat and slice roll into 6 equal pieces. Serve with soy sauce (shoyu), pickled ginger (gari) and Japanese horseradish (wasabi). Easily make hosomaki sushi rolls with a single ingredient, like tuna roll (tekka-maki), pickled daikon (oshinko) and cucumber roll (kappa-maki), futomaki sushi rolls with 4 to 5 ingredients, and uramaki (inside-out rolls), with rice on the outside. Helen's Plastic Sushi Mat is ideal for beginners, kids, and sushi-rolling experts alike. It's lightweight, strong, less absorbent than wood, and won't scratch surfaces. Compact for easy storage. Hand wash in warm, soapy water and air dry thoroughly. Brought to you by HIC-Harold Import Company.
