Salmon and Tofu Wrapped with Nori in Miso Sauce

I have some leftover small pieces of cut salmon from making sushi.Well ,I'm not sure what to do with it but suddenly I come out with this idea of mixing salmon with tofu since I store plenty of tofu in fridge for raining day. I also store few extra packet of nori in my pantry.It's a good idea to wrap chopped tofu and salmon with nori in order to hold those ingredients when steaming at high heat.I used miso paste to make some sauce for these healthy delicacy..What a great light and healthy snack,right?

1/2 block soft tofu(bean curd),chopped
350 gm or more fresh salmon,cut small
1 stalk scallion,washed and cut small
1 egg
1 tsp ground white pepper
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
1 tsp fine salt
4 pieces nori
2 tbsp rice


1 tbsp miso paste
4-5 tbsp water
1 egg
1 tsp mirin
1 tsp sesame oil


1:Combine all ingredients (A) in a medium bowl and mix well.Lay a piece of nori on a clean board or plate.Scoop 2-3 tbsp ingredients (A) in the center of nori and roll up in oblong shape.Use some rice to stick both end to hold the roll before cut into 4-6 pieces.Use a aluminum plate to steam the roll
2:Prepare steamer at high heat.When water rolling boil,place roll onto the steamer.Steam for 15-30 minutes or until c00ked.
3:Meanwhile ,prepare skillet at medium heat,add in miso paste,water and mirin,stir well.When the sauce bubbly boil ,crack egg into the sauce,stir the egg immediately and mix well.Remove the sauce from heat before pour over the cooked roll
4:Serve the roll warm.

good idea to use tofu as the filling. They really look like maki, so cute :)

The salmon, nori and miso sauce must be giving the bland tofu a lot of flavor and the whole deal will be such a tasty deal! ;)
