- 4 fillets horse mackerel (sashimi grade) (160 g)Note

- 2 tbsp sesame seed
- 2-3 scallion
- 400 g cooked rice (hot)

Mix together with cooking chopsticks and marinate for around 10 minutes.
Place paper towels over a cutting board to chop up the sesame seed. Keep the tip of the knife in contact with the board and use it as a fulcrum as you move the knife handle up and down to coarsely chop up the sesame seed. Chop the scallion into 2-3 mm pieces.
