Using avocado and marinated tuna turns the ordinary chirashi into something special. If you have time,

marinate the tuna for couple of hours in a fridge for the perfect taste.

Prep time:
15 minutes
Cooking time:
40 minutes


1. Sushi rice: Cook rice as per instruction on the pack. Once cooked, mix with sushi vinegar and set aside

2.Carrots and shiitake: Put all the ingredients plus 150ml of reserved shiitake stock (if you don’t have

enough, add water to make it to 150ml) in a small pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and

cook for 5-8 mins. Set aside (you can make this a night before and keep in a fridge till you use)

3.Kinshi Egg: Beat egg and mix with sugar and salt. Mix well and run though strainer. Heat up a small frying

pan over medium heat and pour 1/2 of mixture into the pan. Cook for 1 minute and flip over to cook

another side for 1 min. Repeat this to cook another one. Roll up the cooked egg and slice very thinly

4.Tuna: In a small pot, add soy sauce, mirin and cooking sake and bring to boil to get rid of alcohol. Remove

from heat and marinate tuna in the sauce for 30 minutes or longer once the liquid has cooled


5.To assemble, squeeze the liquid out from shiitake and carrots and mix with sushi rice. Put the rice in

the serving plate / bowl. Spread the thinly sliced egg on top of the rice. Decorate the Chirashi with

Avocado, marinated tuna, Tokiko and garnish with shredded nori.
