How to Make Flower Sushi Art
Hi everyone, I am Davy Devaux and I’m going
to show you guys how to make flower sushi.
Okay, let’s make a flower sushi roll, you
start by taking two half sheets of Nori, and
splitting them into three, so you just lay
them over each other, fold them over into
three pieces like so, and now cut them.
Now you’re going to need five, because you’re
going to want to make petals out of this,
so just throw one away and you’ve got five
equal pieces of Nori.
You want to make each of the flower petals
the same size and weight so you take about
30-grams, which is one ounce of pink sushi
rice, and you place your pink sushi rice in
the center just like that. And then once it’s
in the center what you do is you just bring
in the sides, like so, and you don’t even
have to curl it you just have to make one
side slightly smaller, and this makes that
tear drop petal shape which you’re looking
for. Okay, so now you just make five of these.
There we go, we made the five petals now you
make your carrot cylinder. What you do is
you take a rectangle piece of carrot, long
enough to go all the way through a half sheet
of Nori, like so, and then you just make it
into a circle with your knife by scraping
off the corners — beautiful, done.
Now you take half a sheet of Nori place it
in your hand and place three of the petals
with the pointy bit facing to the inside.
And now where they all meet you put your cylinder
carrot, then place the last two so they perfectly
makes a circle which will construct your flower.
There we go, beautiful. Alright now you just
seal it around and if it doesn’t close quickly
after just take three or four kernels of rice
and just squash them at the end piece, and
this is more like glue so you just press it
there and then you seal it.
Now to assemble the flower, you take half
a sheet and another half sheet and you glue
them together with a couple of pieces of rice.
Just squish them over the edge and this acts
as glue, place it over and this makes a very
long piece of Nori, you’re going to need this
for this roll.
Now you place it on a bamboo rolling mat and
now you want to spread some rice. You don’t
want go with an amount of rice you just want
to go more or less what feels right. So make
a very thin layer of rice, covering about
80% of the sheet. Now what you want to do
is make three little walls or rice standing
quite close to each other, like so. Okay,
that’s one wall, this wall is two, okay — beautiful.
And then wall number three. Once you’ve done
your walls sprinkle a little bit of sesame
seeds over it, there we go. Now add a couple
pieces of Nori in between these walls, like
so — okay, beautiful.
Now in these troughs what you want to do is
just add a little bit of minced strawberries,
don’t overfill it, you want to be very-very
subtle with this, very little bit. These are
like small unopened flowers. And then finish
it off with a couple of pieces of some very
thinly sliced cucumber skin so that they are
Now you add your flower piece right here — okay,
perfect. And then you just want to seal these
up, close them — good. And now you add a
little kampyo package…if you want to know
how to make these, check out my other videos,
a link has just appeared on the left corner
which will take you to Sushi Letters.
Okay so now before you seal it, you add a
little bit of rice right here in between the
kampyo and the flower, so it just fills up
and doesn’t crinkle up. Okay and then it’s
just a question of closing the sushi roll
— there we go, beautiful.
So now dip your knife in some water just so
the rice doesn’t stick to it much, and then
just simply cut through, revealing the beautiful
flower beneath. The kampyo made a nice stalk
of the flower, these are closed flowers still,
the green is like leaves and this is — well
you can see what it is, beautiful.
Alright now just finish your cuts. You should
get about three flowers, more or less, and
two end pieces which are not very useful.
