Food Styling: Picture-Perfect Sushi Salad

Written by Cook Kosher on Monday, 07 May 2012. Posted in Tips And Tricks

We're back with another food styling special. These posts are here to help you plate a food item to  perfection. Just like the pro's do it. Don't forget to check out out our Picture-Perfect Soup

Sushi is a trend that's here to stay. But there is no need to always serve it the conventual way. For you next brunch, shabbos or seudah shlishit, make Sushi Trifle Salad

You can choose to make this in a large bowl or serve it in individual glasses. No need to have matching glasses, as assorted ones add a fun twist. 

Start by layering cooked sushi rice. 

Crumble or cut Nori sheets over the rice. 

Add some cubed avacodo for color. 

Add some cucumber. The original poster suggested cubed cucumbers. Our food stylist used a peeled to create ribbons out of the cucumber for a prettier affect. 


Top with pieces of salmon. Sprinkle with dressing. 

And garlish with sesame seeds. 

Easy, Elegant and Delicous.

    That closely resembles a Japanese dish called Chirashizushi (scattered sushi). It's often served with a small salad on it too.
    The recipe might be even nicer with a little shiso leaf. I also like to peel entire carrots, marinated them in a little rice vinegar, honey, and siracha. Could add a nice crunch to the recipe.

    How can I make the rice in advance?

    You can make the rice a few days before and bring it to room temperature before serving.

    Link isn't working. Help with the dressing? Planning my Shavuout menu now.

    Link to dressing works fine! This looks delish and a lot easier than rolling sushi. I am veg, so I will sub the salmon for seitan or marinaded tofu, and use rice vinegar in the rice. Also maybe using seaweed salad instead of nori, or kimchee would be awesome for us!
