Every time that I go to L.A, one of my must do's is to go at least once to the japanese restaurant Katsuya in Brentwood, their crispy rice spicy tuna sushi is seriously one of the best I have ever tried!!
Unable to find a close enough replica in any Japanese restaurants here in Singapore, I decided that it was time to try out this mouthwatering (and also healthy) dish. I searched the net for recipes and then I came across the perfect recipe on Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop blog, the recipe is tasty and full of flavors, I really recommend that you try it if you are a sushi/Japanese/raw fish fanatic like myself :)

*I couldn't find the Sriracha chili sauce so I used a local Thai chili sauce (see picture 5)
*For those who are not familiar with Japanese cuisine, Gwyneth's recipe uses Furikake to season the rice (picture 6).
There are different kinds of Furikake seasonings some of the most common ingredients are seaweed, bonito flakes, sesame seeds and dried & ground fish. The Furikake I chose for this recipe also contained horseradish and powdered green tea.
*When frying the rice make sure that you cover your pan as the oil will splatter around and it can be dangerous.
