This isn't your ordinary sushi! So, if you have guests and want to impress them making sushi, consider a small twist! Braid some thin cucumber slices and lay them on a loaf pan. Add sushi rice, omelet, smoked salmon and avocado and cover with the braided cucumber. The result is pretty amazing!

Ingredients

Steps

1
Done

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over low-medium heat.

2
Done

Beat the eggs just a little and add them to the skillet.

3
Done

Cook until the top surface of egg mixture thickened, and no egg liquid remains. Flip it and cook on the other side. Slice it and set aside.

4
Done

Slice the cucumber lengthwise using a peeler, to make thin slices.

5
Done

Lay the slices on the work surface on cooking plastic wrap. Lay them side by side, crosswise and interlaced, as close as possible. Braid them.

6
Done

Place the plastic wrap with the braided cucumber slices into a baking form, add half of the cooked rice, then one or two slices of omelet.

7
Done

Continue with the smoked salmon, sliced avocado, and top with the remaining rice.

8
Done

Fold the braided cucumber over the sushi rice and let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before slicing it.

9
Done

When serving, carefully unwrap the plastic from the top of the loaf pan taking care to leave the cucumber braid in place. Turn the pan upside down and carefully remove the plastic wrap from the sushi.

10
Done

Decorate with flower-like folded prosciutto slices and fresh parsley, slice and serve.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
