Gomoku Chirashi

(The instructional video is under “HOW TO” tab.)

Gomoku chirashi is a type of sushi, which is not served at sushi restaurant, but pretty popular to make at home for festive occasions. The word gomoku literally means five items, but it actually means many. So that gomoku chirashi is a kind of sushi, which includes many different ingredients.

All the steps of this recipe can be seen in a video under “HOW TO” tab.

Here, I made a standard version, without any raw ingredients. But you can add other ingredients, such as real crab meat, imitation crab meat, salmon roe, grilled salmon flakes, etc.

As to stewed vegetables you don’t need to have all the ingredients, as some of them may be difficult to obtain. Other than carrots, lotus root, aburaage, and dried shiitake mushrooms, which are used in the recipe, gobo (burdock root), shirataki, and kanpyo (stewed dried gourd shavings) are typically used. Adjust the amount of vegetables to come up to about 4 cups of sliced vegetables all together. If you have left over stewed vegetables, it can be frozen for later use.

Seasoned vinegar is mixture of rice vinegar, sugar, and salt, and it’s sold as “Sushi Vinegar” or “Seasoned Vinegar” at Asian stores, but you can find recipe from here as well.

If you don’t have time, but still want to eat gomoku chirashi, use a packaged pre-made stewed vegetables called “Sushi Taro.” For your reference the Amazon link is below.
