Saturday's Japanese Maki Rolls With Miso-Tofu Soup

1.    Place a nori sheet, shiny side down, on a board covered with cling wrap. With wet hands, top with a layer of rice and place a row of prawns and avo along one edge. Roll up tightly, lengthwise. Repeat with remaining prawns and avo, salmon and cucumber. Slice and serve with the mayo, ginger and soup.

2.    To make the rice, soak it in the water for 30 minutes. Heat the vinegar, sugar and salt, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Cool. Boil the rice and water for 1 minute, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Set aside, covered, for 10 minutes, then turn into a shallow dish and fold in the vinegar. Chill.

3.    To make the soup, mix the miso with a little stock, then whisk in the remaining stock. Add the tofu and spring onions and heat through.
