Asparagus Nori Rolls

Vegetarian
This fab appetiser is great as a stand alone dish but also makes a groovy little canapé and is a brilliant vegetarian option when serving sushi. The addition of smoked salmon is also an option for squeamish guests who are too narrow minded to eat raw fish.

Servings 4 people

Equipment

  • Omelette pan

Ingredients
  

  • 6 Eggs
  • 3 tbsp Kikkoman soy
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 4 Nori sheets
  • 2 tsp Wasabi paste
  • 16 Asparagus spears Peeled and blanched

To serve

  • ¼ cup Kikkoman soy
  • Pickled ginger

Instructions
 

  • Beat the eggs together with the mirin, sugar and 1 tblsp of the soy, then pour a small amount into a hot oiled omelette pan and cook briefly – it should be paper-thin.
  • Cut the nori sheets in half and brush with soy sauce; place an omelette on each piece of nori and dot the omelette with a little of the wasabi.
  • Place 2 blanched asparagus spears on each of the pancakes and then roll. Moisten the end of the nori in order to get the roll to stick.
  • Cut on a bias into bite-sized pieces and serve with soy sauce for dipping and some Japanese pickled ginger.

Variation

  • Smoked salmon can be placed on the omelette instead of the asparagus.

Wine Notes

  • A crisp sauvignon Blanc would work well here, something with a bit of fruit. Just be careful with the wasabi it has a tendency to blow everything away.
