Falling somewhere between chirashizushi and poke, this rice bowl, made with seasoned sushi rice, marinated trout, daikon and nori is as easy to whip up as it is delicious to eat. Add extra Japanese pickles for added colour and crunch.

  • 60 ml (¼ cup) rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 400 gm sashimi-grade ocean trout, diced
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped coriander
  • 100 gm daikon, cut into julienne
  • Pickled ginger, shredded nori and roasted sesame seeds, to serve
Soy-ginger dressing
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 20 gm (4cm piece) ginger, finely grated on a microplane

    Bring rice to the boil in 750ml water in a saucepan, stir once, cover and simmer over low heat until water is absorbed (13-15 minutes). Transfer to a tray, pour vinegar over rice, then sprinkle with sugar and 1 tsp salt. Stir occasionally until cooled (10 minutes).
