Method

1. Egg omelette: Mix egg and salt in a small bowl with a fork. Never whisk. Pass through a chinois or fine sieve. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour half the egg mix into the frying pan, spread by moving the pan. When the edge is starting to dry and it’s almost cooked in the middle, turn over. Cook for a few seconds and move to a board, julienne into strips.

2. Pickled lotus: Cut lotus into thin round slices (on a mandolin). Place the slices in a large bowl filled with cold water and a dash of vinegar. Soak for 15 minutes to remove the starch, then drain. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil. Add drained lotus, cook for a few minutes or until roots change to a lighter colour.

3. Mushrooms: refresh kanpyo and shitake mushroom in water, drain and cut into small pieces. Heat dashi stock in a pot, add kanpyo and mushroom, cook until heated through. Add sugar and soy sauce. Continue to cook until liquid is reduced to a third of its volume.

4. Grilled eel: cut eel into small pieces. Cook eels at medium heat in a pot with cooking liquid and stir until the eels look glossy.

5. Sushi rice: combine vinegar, sugar, salt and soy sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat. Stir to dissolve sugar then cool in an ice bath. Stir into cooked rice.  

6. While still hot, add warm eels, mushrooms and liquid from the eels. When mixing with a spatula, use a hand fan to fan the rice while mixing it in a cutting action to avoid breaking it.

7. Garnish with pickled ginger and carrot flowers.
