Temari Zushi: ‘hand ball’ Sushi


Temari are small sushi balls, and the literal translation is ‘hand-ball’ in English. They are very easy to make by simply cutting a small square of cling film, placing rice in the middle, gathering the ends of the cling-film and twisting.


The most traditional toppings are sashimi/raw fish and fish eggs, vegetables or a very thin crepe-like omelette.

I made mine with a range of vegetables and smoked salmon but any ingredient/recipe can be experimented with! Not only are these temari some of the most visually appealing and versatile sushi, but they are surprisingly simple and easy to make.
