Nigiri Sushi (Omelette)

5 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon mirin (sweetened rice wine)
2 tablespoons bonito stock, or chicken broth
2 cups sushi rice
1 sheet nori (seaweed), toasted

Break the eggs into a 2-cup measuring cup. With wooden chopsticks,
stir, but NOT beat, the eggs, being careful not to incorporate air
into them. Add the salt, sugar, mirin, and stock. Stir until salt
and sugar are dissolved and the yolks and the whites are well

Wipe a 12-inch skillet with nonstick finish with a oil-soaked cloth
or paper towel. Place on low heat for several minutes.

When the skillet is well heated, pour in the egg mixture very
gently. You should not hear the eggs sizzle. If you do, the pan
is too hot.

Cook the eggs on low several minutes, until it begins to set, but
still runny. With a wooden spatula or chopsticks, gently lift one
edge of the omelette and fold over, about 2 inches. Continue
cooking and folding over until a rolled block is formed, 12 inches
long and about 2 2/12 inches wide. Take care that the eggs don't

Remove from heat and let cool.

When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cutting board. Cut off
and discard the edges. Slice crosswise at a slight angle into
1/4-inch slices. The slices should be rectangles with rounded
edges, about 2 1/2x1-inch. Cut the nori into thin strips, about
3 inches long.

Moisten your hands with hand vinegar (a mixture of 1 cup water and
2 tablespoons vinegar). Take a small amount of the sushi rice
(about 1 1/2 rounded tablespoons) and cradle it in your right hand
at the base of our fingers. Crimp to form a rectangular block
about 2-2 1/2 inches long to match the egg slices. Place the egg
slice on top of the rice block and tie together with the nori strip.
