Episode 719: Sushi Rice
Sushi is a Japanese specialty enjoyed all over the world, and is particularly popular here in America. Ming shares the basics of this simple and healthy specialty, and develops a Master Sushi Roll: this includes three different varieties of Nigiri made with Tuna, Striped Bass, and Beef steak, and two handrolls made with Tea-Smoked Salmon and Avocado and Grilled Shrimp Salad. Ming also creates two Maki Sushi made with Grilled Vegetables, Tea-Smoked Salmon and Cucumber. A Hot Sushi Cake with Spicy Tuna Poke completes the tasting platter. Ming heads over to Oishii restaurant in Boston, MA, to learn different tricks of this century-old practice. Back in the studio, guest chef Beau MacMillan of Elements Restaurant in Arizona uses Ming’s master recipe to create Seared Scallops with Maitake Ginger Garlic Cream and Rice.
