((Sushi Shrimp))
10 whiteleg shrimp
10 bamboo skewers
500ml water
2 tsp. salt
((Sushi Rice))
350g (12oz) cooked Japanese short grain rice
1.5tbsp.~2tbsp. rice vinegar
0.5tbsp.~1.5tbsp. sugar
1/2tsp. salt
((Ebi Avocado))
avocado slices
onion slices

((Sushi Shrimp))
1. You can devein the shrimp when the head is removed (do not peel and leave the tails). Put through bamboo skewers along the legs to straighten the shrimp.
2. Boil 500ml water, add salt, then cook the shrimp for about 3 minutes.
3. Leave to cool in the cooking water.
4. When the water is completely cool, peel from the triangle part of the tail (leave the tail). Then cut the stomach side to the back until you reach the vein but not all the way through, so that it opens up wide. If the shrimp is not perfectly deveined you can wipe off or wash lightly.
((Sushi Rice))
1. Mix vinegar, sugar, and salt very well to make Sushi vinegar. You can microwave for a few seconds to mix well.
2. Add the Sushi vinegar while the rice is still hot and slice through the rice using a rice paddle to separate the grains. Let the rice cool. Use a fan to cool the rice if available to create an added shine on your Sushi rice but it is optional.
((Ebi Avocado))
1. Form the Sushi rice into an oval shape. Top with Ebi, avocado slices, onion slices, and mayonnaise.
2. Serve with soy sauce or wasabi soy sauce.
