ChirashiSushi29

This is my favorite type of sushi. And for this occasion I have a photo guide for you. There is no fixed recipe and you don't need to use raw fish either if you don't like, but you can add any ingredient you prefer. It is perfect as an appetizer or main course served at room temperature.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit


1. Place the shiitake Mushrooms in a small bowl. Cover with fresh water. Use warm water and add a pinch of Sugar for faster softer soaking.
