Equipment

  • Microwave

Materials

  • sushi (leftover)

Instructions

  • Arrange your 2-person sushi tray on a microwave-proof plate. Never use the tray that came from the market.
  • Zap it for 30 seconds, then choose the power level of your microwave and set it to 500-watt (50% power). Press start.
  • Serve asap

Notes

What's the result?

  • All of the neta toppings¬†were much improved, but the thing that really made the difference was the rice.
  • That 30-second warm-up took the edge off the rice's coldness, and in terms of texture and taste, it was as if a sushi chef had just formed it.
  • Even the squid topping was much improved. Squid can be quite bland and chilly if it's been left standing for a while, but having been microwaved gently for a few seconds, it becomes beautifully sweet and soft.
