Tazuna-zushi [手綱寿司]


Tazuna-zushi or Tazuna Maki is a rolled sushi with diagonal strips of colourful ingredients across the top, often called a rainbow roll. Again, this is also an easy-to-make sushi especially when you need something quick and presentable for entertaining guests.
Same as for last few sushi recipes, I used whatever I had on-hand. For sure, you can use fresh salmon or smoked salmon too for colour contrast. This sushi recipe is also featured in Y3K Recipes issue no. 73 (Jul/Aug 2013).

Ingredients (makes 4 rolls):
  • Sushi rice (cooked from 1 cup of raw rice)
  • 1 kyuri
  • 8-10 boiled prawns

  1. Divide and shape sushi rice into 4 equal portion rolls with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  2. Peel the kyuri with a peeler to obtain thin slices. Arrange 3 slices together and cut in halves as shown in the photo.
  3. Peel prawn, divide each prawn into halves lengthwise.
  4. Place a plastic wrap over sushi mat, arrange in kyuri and prawn alternatively.
  5. Place a sushi roll (1) on the top, roll it up together with plastic wrap and sushi mat carefully. Set aside for few minutes before cutting, with the plastic wrap on.
  6. Cut into 6 equal pieces then remove the plastic wrap carefully. Serve with shoyu, wasabi and pickled ginger.
