Ingredients

  • 1 pound sushi quality tuna, salmon, yellowtail, or snapper
  • 4 sheets nori (seaweed) approximately 5 by 7 inches
  • 4 ounces cooked snow crab claws, split from shell
  • 4 teaspoons tobiko (flying fish roe)
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 6 cups cooked vinegared sushi rice
  • Special equipment: An oshibako (the wooden box which presses and molds the ingredients into the rectangular shape)

Directions

Cut the fish into thin slices (1/8-inch) against the grain. Using the outside perimeter of the oshibako as a template, place it on top of the sliced fish and cut the edges of the fish to fit inside the box.

First put a sheet of nori inside the oshibako, and top with the first layer of fish. Then evenly spread a layer of 1-ounce of snow crab. Follow with a layer of 1 teaspoon tobiko, then 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, and a layer of 1 cup sushi rice. Finish with another layer of fish. Then press the oshibako lid to compress and mold the sushi.

Invert to remove and cut into 6 even pieces crosswise and in half lengthwise to yield 12 pieces. Repeat process for 3 more times to yield 48 rectangular sushi. Keep sushi cold until ready to serve.
