Note

Nori Sheets: You can use roasted seaweed snack cut into strips instead of nori roll

You can find it in the international section at the supermarket near the pickled ginger and kewpie mayonnaise. It is also delicious cut into strips and served on a salad

Chicken: You can use 750gms chicken thighs if you prefer. I prefer to use chicken tenderloins as there is no fat and no waste due to trimming

Carrot: A Zyliss Julienne Peeler is a good investment if you have lots of salads

Available from any good kitchen shop. Gives long thin strands of carrot like the photo
