  • Sesame seeds
  • Scallions
  • 8 squares crispy rice
  • Sautéed pepper topping
  • Spicy Mayo


  • 1 cup calrose rice, wash it really well, 3-4 times until the water is no longer white. Soak it for about 20-30 min and cook for 2 cups water, season it with 2 tbsp rice vin, 1.5 tbsp cane sugar, pinch of salt

Marinated Peppers for Topping

  • Press the sushi rice onto a container over parchment paper and put in the freezer for 1 hr. Cut into 8 squares and fry in a preheated cast iron with about 1 inch of oil. Cook for 4-5 min per side or until golden brown.
  • Season the salmon (salt and pepper) and cook in the same pan as the rice, give it a hard sear only on one side if you want it pink. About 1 min.
