Totally DEE-licious. A high-energy lunch. This is very non-traditional because the recipe calls for brown rice, but given the need for fibre, I hope Japan will forgive me. The best part is that you can snack on this all through lunch and feel pretty full. Sushi takes a bit of skill to master, but by your second roll, you'll wonder why you ever paid ridiculous prices!

Recipe Ingredients for Sushi

4 cups brown rice, cooked & still hot
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
5 sheets nori
1 teaspoon wasabi
1 pollock fillet, sliced thinly
1/4 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
1 spring onion

Recipe Directions for Sushi

  1. Spread hot rice into a bowl, then heat the rice vinegar, sugar and salt, either in a small pot or a microwave. As soon as the sugar has dissolved, mix into the rice.

  2. Next, heat a sheet of nori over a stove element or low gas flame. The nori will turn green as it's ready.

  3. Roll the sushi into logs. If you've never rolled sushi before, a quick web lesson will alleviate any problems. As a hint, I usually find I roll the sushi more evenly if I moisten the nori just before I roll it. (Although gifted sushi-makers would scoff at this.)

  4. Slice the log into 1/4" pieces.

  5. Serve with wasabi.
