This is really just a sushi hand roll, but the burrito part is to encourage you not to see DIY sushi as difficult or requiring rules to be followed. There is virtually NOTHING that can not/should not be dropped into the middle of these rolls. Here is a fairly traditional version…
Black sesame seeds (could use white)
Other ingredients you could add:
Any other raw or cooked fish
Rice paper instead of nori
Grilled tofu sliced
Grilled tempeh sliced
Cooked vegs (sweet potato would be lovely or beets)
Cook the rice and let it cool. Cook the shrimp or buy it pre-cooked which I did and then slice it down the middle. Slice the cucumber into thin matchsticks. Grate the carrot and the ginger with a vegetable peeler. Put all the ingredients onto the nori, and sprinkle a touch of soy on it (this also helps to soften the nori). Don’t go too light on the filling, because there is a lot of nori here and you don’t want the end bites to be all nori. Roll it carefully. Top with sesame seeds.
Best eaten at least 15 mins post prep so the nori can soften. Can be refrigerated for up to two days.
