Korean hot dog sushi rolls (kimbap)

Ingredients

  • Seaweed sushi wrappers
  • 2 cups short grain white rice
  • 3 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 hot dogs
  • Takuwan (pickled daikon radish) and pickled burdock root (optional, if you can find it at an Asian market), sliced into thin long strips

Special equipment: You will need a bamboo sushi rolling mat

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to directions, or with slightly less water, to keep the grains from turning mushy.
  2. Blanch or steam spinach and carrots until barely cooked. Slice the carrots into long, 1/4″ wide strips.
  3. Fry the eggs in a lightly oiled skillet as if making a thin pancake. Let cook until set on one side, then flip the entire thing over without breaking it. Slice into thin strips.
  4. Heat the hot dogs in a skillet until they turn slightly brown and plumped. Slice lengthwise into quarters. Have all the ingredients ready when the rice finishes.
  5. While rice is still warm sprinkle with salt, sugar and sesame oil. Gently mix the rice and seasonings by turning sections of it with a rice paddle or large spoon, to not smash it into a paste.
  6. Place a sheet of seaweed on the bamboo mat. Spread a thin layer of rice on the bottom four or five inches of the seaweed. In the middle of the rice, carefully arrange the strips of vegetable, egg and hot dog. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and a little more sesame oil if desired.
  7. Without lifting up the bamboo mat, take the bottom of the sheet and fold the rice over the fillings, forming a roll. You may need to press loose fillings in as you do this to keep the roll looking nice. You should now see only plain rice and the non-rice end of the seaweed ahead of you as your roll from the bottom up. If necessary, sprinkle a little water on the inside of the seaweed to help it stick together when you have rolled everything together into a tube.
  8. When you have formed the roll, then wrap the bamboo mat around the whole thing and gentle squeeze. This helps the kimbap to hold together without sticking to your fingers.
  9. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, then slice into 3/4″ rounds with a sharp knife. Dipping the knife lightly into water between slices will help prevent sticking.

    Pond de l'Archeveche - hundreds thousands of padlocks locked to a bridge by random couples, as a symbol of their eternal love. After another iconic Pont des Arts bridge was cleared of the padlocks in 2010 (as a safety measure), people started to place their love symbols on this one. Today both of the bridges are full of love locks again.

    On a weekend trip to buffalo from Toronto we made a pit stop at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. I took this shot with my nexus 5 smartphone. I was randomly shooting the falls themselves from different viewpoints when I happened to get a pretty lucky and interesting shot of this lone seagull on patrol over the falls. I didn't even realize I had captured it in the shot until I went back through the photos a few days later

    Lucky timing! The oxpecker was originally sitting on hippo's head. I could see the hippo was going into a huge yawn (threat display?) and the oxpecker had to vacate it's perch. When I snapped the pic, the oxpecker appeared on the verge of being inhaled and was perfectly positioned between the massive gaping jaws of the hippo. The oxpecker also appears to be screeching in terror and back-pedaling to avoid being a snack!

    This wave is situated right near the CBD of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia, due to it breaking on barnacle covered rocks only a few feet deep and only ten metres from the cliff face. If you fall off you could find yourself in a life and death situation. This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling into the lip of the barrel.
