  • 6 sheets of packaged nori (dried laver)
  • 1 pound fresh fish fillet (see sashimi)

  • cup chirizu or tosa joyu

  • How To Cook:
    1. Select the fish according to directions. Cut the fillet into slices inch thick and 6 or 7 inches long or as long as the sheet of nori.

    2. To intensify its flavor and color, pass the nori, a sheet at a time-and on one side only-over a gas flame or candle.

    3. Lay the nori flat on a hard surface-the Japanese use a bamboo mat to facilitate the rolling-with the wide side of the mat facing toward you.

    4. Place a long slice of fish along the length of the nori and roll the nori into a long, thick, tight cylinder.

    5. With a sharp knife cut it crosswise into 1-inch slices. Roll and cut the remaining fish and nori in similar fashion.

    6. Serve with a dipping sauce, as part of a Japanese meal or first course.
