Obama Sushi by Ken Kawazumi

Recently I found this cool Obama sushi make by a famous Japanese Chef in Tokyo. See below the fantastic sushi art presented by Mr Ken Kawazumi, Principal of  Tokyo Academy in Sugamo, Tokyo.

After some trials and errors such as sushi rice quantity, nori length, sushi ingredients etc.. Here is the Obama Sushi. Obama’s skin is Ami (small shrimp) and shari(sushi rice), black sesame seeds for the hair, and kamaboko(processed fish paste) for the teeth.

Next is American flag portion. The red stripes are made from Maguro Tuna, and the white made from sashimi squid.

Futomaki Sushi Making

A very good idea to utilize the left-over cooked eggs instead of using Uni to create “USA”. It was blended in a food processor then mixed with the sushi rice to make yellow rice. Big saving and no wasting.
