4-1/2 cups rice
4-1/2 cups water
1-1/8 cups sugar
2 Tbsp salt
2/3 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup furikake nori
1 pkg. (16 oz. size Imitation Crab, chopped)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp salt
4 ozs. takuwan (Japanese pickled white radish, chopped)
1 Japanese cucumber, chopped (optional)
In a rice cooker, rinse rice, drain. Add water and let stand 10-15 minutes. Stir rice before cooking.
While rice is cooking, combine sugar, the 2 Tbsp salt and vinegar into a saucepan and cook until sugar dissolves. Pour over slightly cooled rice, mix well. Evenly sprinkle 1/4 cup of the furukaki nori in a 9"x13" rectangular glass dish. Spread seasoned rice over furikake.
Combine crab, mayonnaise and remaining 1/2 tsp salt, spread over rice, layer takuwan and cucumber over the crab mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup furikake. Cover and refrigerate. Cut into squares. Serves 20.
