Sakura Blossom Sushi

Sakura Blossom Sushi

Makes 8 pieces.

Ingredients:

- 1 cup cooked white rice
- 3 Tbsp Sakura Denbu
- 1 green soy wrapper (I used Yamamotoyama’s Soy Wrappers)
- 8 sakura blossoms

Directions:

  1. Soak the blossoms in a cup of hot water for about 5 minutes. Remove the blossoms from the water, shake off any excess water, and set aside. The leftover liquid can be diluted with more hot water to create a sakura tea.
  2. Scatter the Sakura Denbu in with the rice and mix together. Place the soy wrapper on a sushi mat. With wet hands, distribute the rice on the lower half of a soy wrapper sheet. Roll the mat upwards to create a tight roll. Cut the roll into 8 equal pieces.
  3. Place a blossom atop each roll. Enjoy alone or as a side dish.
