Method of Rolling Norimaki
Place nori on sudare (fine bamboo mat). Spread rice evenly over 3/4 of the nori (thickness of layer of rice should be about 1/2 inch). About 1 inch from the edge "A", arrange 5 strands of kanpyo, a row each of shiitake, carrots, spinach and egg. Beginning at "A", roll nori away from you. When edge of sudare touches rice, lift sudare and continue rolling. Hold firm to tighten roll. Remove sudare. To serve, cut first in half, then into fours. Arrange on platter with cut side up. Garnish with parsley.
Variations for fillings: Broiled eel (canned), bamboo shoots, kamaboko (fish cake), green beans, watercress, parsley, and shredded shrimp. Most ingredients available at Oriental food stores.Goes with: HOW TO COOK RICE - (Japanese Style).
