For the uninitiated a musubi is kind of like maki sushi (aka sushi roll), except that maki sushi rice has been seasoned with rice vinegar, while musubi rice is lightly seasoned with salt. In Japan you’ll find musubi with a variety of different fillings including umeboshi, konbu, canned tuna w/mayo and yes, salmon.
We set to work in our test kitchen to create a mini salmon musubi that would impress and we’re excited to introduce it today as a premium side ($1).
Our house made cured salmon explodes with flavor. To kick it up a notch we add just the tiniest bit of kewpie mayo, a pinch of our magical spices and a little jalapeno to make things interesting, if not down right addictive.
Best of all, we are curing cuts of salmon that are just under the skin and happen to have the highest concentration of Omega 3 fatty acids. The American Heart Association recommends eating two servings of fish each week. Yeah... we can help with that. ;)
We can’t wait to hear what you think of it.
