Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 6 slices ham
- 300 g cooked rice (hot)
- 1 cucumber
- 4 tbsp sweet corn (canned; whole kernel)
- 1/3 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Wholegrain mustard, as needed
- Ketchup, as needed
Combine the [Seasoned vinegar] ingredients, then mix into the rice to make sushi rice. Set aside and let cool.
Cut the ham slices in half. Slice the cucumber into rounds, then sprinkle with 1/3 tsp of salt and let rest for about 5 minutes. Drain the canned corn.
Squeeze and remove excess moisture from the cucumbers. Mix the cucumbers and corn into the sushi rice, and divide into 12 portions. Cover each portion with plastic wrap and gently form into cylinders.
Spread out the plastic wrap, place a slice of ham on top of the rice, then cover again with plastic wrap and shape into a tight cylinder. Repeat for the remaining portions.
Serve topped with wholegrain mustard and ketchup.
