_R061060To Assemble Your Stir:

In individual ramekins, or glasses (we used stemless wine glasses and stemmed dessert cups here), start with the Della Jasmine rice for the bottom layer. Next add nori (seaweed) strips, cucumber, avocado and salmon. Garnish with sesame seeds and a touch of wasabi (be carful not to add too much! this is strong stuff!). Drizzle some soy and/or ponzu sauce on top . Serve cold. Your guests will be oohing and ahhing all night long 🙂
