The perfect party snack: DIY sushi cones (temaki)

Must Try

Throwing a party always presents us with a small culinary dilemma: on the one hand we want to be the perfect hostess, with primabella snacks and homemade drinks – on the other hand we also just want to chat with the guests, and little stress beforehand. To cook or not to cook, that’s the question . But that question has now been answered once and for all thanks to Bon Appétit : these DIY sushi cones are the perfect snack for your party.

The idea: buy a load of nori sheets, make a big pan of sushi rice, put some chopped vegetables in bowls and let your guests choose for themselves. Or well, with a little help from you. (Especially if your grandma comes too.)

The perfect snack for parties

We always have three requirements for a snack for a party: it must be easy to eat, it must simply be very tasty and it must be ready quickly. Normally sushi does not meet this requirement (unless you order it of course), but it does if you let your guests do the rolling themselves. Not with a sushi mat, but just by hand.

Unless your circle of friends consists of pure perfectionists who can only tolerate tightly rolled maki, everyone will really enjoy filling and (trying to) roll their own sushi cone. Do assume that your table will get a little dirty from the rice grains, but hey, that’s part of it.

DIY sushi cones

The only thing you really need to prepare for the DIY sushi cones is the sushi rice. How do you prepare it? We use 220 grams of water, 5 tablespoons of rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar on 200 grams of sushi rice .

Rinse the rice under cold running water until the water is no longer cloudy. Place the rice in a pan and let it rest for 15 minutes. Then add the water, bring to a boil over high heat and turn the heat down after 2 minutes. Put a lid on the pan and let the rice cook for about 20 minutes, until the rice is soft and the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat, cover the rice with a clean tea towel and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make the dressing by heating vinegar, sugar and salt until clear. Finally, mix this with the rice.

Place nori sheets on the table, put the rice next to them and provide some tasty sushi filling, which you can prepare while the rice is cooking. You can use the leftovers from your fridge for this! Think of cucumber slices , mango and  avocado , strips of omelette  or  oyster mushroom  or of course fish or fried tofu . Place in bowls or on a large plate, so that you are left with less dishes.
