Gluten Free Dragon Rolls Sushi

I loooooove sushi and one of my favourites is dragon rolls but the tempura bater and soy sauce both have wheat in them which sucks for those intolerant to gluten so I tried out a new recipe last night and the results were pretty tasty!

What you will need:

  • Sushi grade rice (I get mine from Tesco)
  • Shrimp or king prawns
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado
  • Nori seaweed sheets
  • Gluten Free soy sauce
  • Chilli paste (optional)
  • Garlic paste (optional)
  • Salad of your choosing (I used spinach, radish and cucumber)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Batter (100g gluten free plain flour & soda water or tonic if you want more of a lemony taste)
  • Sushezi or sushi rolling mat
  • Sharp knife

Step 1 - Prep your fish

I used king prawns as they are easier to find in the supermarket, cutting them into smaller pieces to that they are easier to lie in a straight line within the sushi

Step 2 - Make your batter

Add 100g of gluten free plain flour to to a bowl and then slowly mix in your soda/tonic until it's a thin paste. If you dip your finger in it then it should slightly cover your finger but not look too thick.

Remember to clean your hands first!!

Step 3 - Cook Fish

Fill a small pan about a 1/4 full with oil, whilst putting your fish in the batter whist your oil heats up. Once the oil is hot enough (you can tell this by dropping in a small amount of batter to see if it sizzles and rises to the surface) then slowly add your fish and leave to cook for a few minutes until golden brown. Then very carefully remove the fish from the pan and place on a piece of kitchen roll to dry out.

Then leave the fish to cool.

Step 4 - Make your Sushi

Take half a Nori sheet and place your fish and some strips of cucumber in a straight line on the sheet. Then roll the sheet up, wetting one end so it sticks.

I have a Sushezi so then I just put my sushi in the tube, place the Nori sheet in the middle, close the tube up and compress, before pushing the sushi out. Alternatively, you can use a sushi rolling mat.

Step 5 - Add the scales

De-shell half an avocado and thinly slice it, as well as slicing your sushi (it works better if you clean your knife between sushi cuts).

Then take a few slices and layer them on top of the sushi like dragon scales

Step 6 - Make your sauce

Now you can just have soy sauce on it's own but I like putting it in a small tub with some chilli and garlic paste before shaking to mix up.

Step 7 - Garnish your plate

Garnish with a salad of your choice or just load up on the sushi goodness!!!

I'll be back,
