Korean Rice Logs Recipe

Ingredients:

Sticky white rice or brown rice
Pack of roasted seaweed (nori) sheets
Sesame oil
Sea salt

Directions:

For white rice, cook 1 cup of rice with 1 and 1/2 cups of water. For brown rice, cook 1 cup of rice with 2 cups of water. Bring water to a boil and then turn heat to low setting and cook with lid on until rice is done.

Once the rice is ready, add sesame oil and sea salt, to taste. Be sure to add just a half teaspoon of sesame oil at a time, since authentic sesame oil is very flavourful and you won't need much. Taste frequently as you add sesame oil and salt and mix

If your seaweed sheets are larger than about 4 inches by 2 inches, cut them to this size with scissors. Use a spoon to place a small amount of rice/sesame oil mixture onto each small sheet of seaweed, roll each one up with your fingers, and gobble them up. Read more about Korean Rice Logs Recipe
