Sushi rolls with tuna, vegetables and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI: Oriental cuisine meets Modenese tradition

The Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI is undoubtedly the most widespread name in the commercial sector, as well as being the most widely exported in the world, for this food product. Outside the boundaries of Modena's culinary tradition, the so-called black gold of the tables is certainly one of the most popular ingredients among chefs.

Among the most original pairings is that of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI paired with Sushi rolls with tuna and vegetables, responding to the success that Japanese cuisine has had in recent years in our country. If you want to bring to the table some first courses with balsamic vinegar of Modena IGP, but you also have a weakness for sushi, here is the complete recipe for sushi rolls with balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients for 4 persons

  • 200 g sushi rice
  • 4 sheets of nori seaweed
  • 200 g raw tuna for sushi
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • a small amount of valerian
  • Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt

Preparation: rice

The first step is to peel the carrot, then cut it into very thin slices and sticks. Then cut the celery in the same way. Then the vegetables have to be blanched in boiling salted water for about 30 minutes. After these first steps, continue by cooking the rice with 400 ml water and a little salt for about 15 minutes.

Now it is time to heat the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena with the salt and sugar. Once the mixture is ready, pour it over the hot rice towards the end of cooking, stirring very quickly. At this point, tip the rice into a bowl and cover it with the classic bamboo mat. The latter is used in this type of recipe, as it has the important function of letting steam escape. Stir it occasionally while it cools.

Preparation: the filling

Meanwhile, prepare the other ingredients, starting with the tuna to be cut into rather thick strips. Continue by peeling the avocado and cutting it too into slices twice as thick as the tuna. Then put everything together. Place the sheets of nori seaweed on the bamboo mat used for sushi. Before proceeding, it is important to moisten your hands so that a light layer of rice can be spread much more easily.

Remember to leave 2 cm free on each longer side. Slightly crush the rice layer to make it more compact. Place a strip of carrots on the rice 2 cm from the edge, then a strip of celery and a strip of avocado. Add the tuna and a few valerian florets. Starting from one side and facilitating the process with the mat, start rolling, pressing the free edge of the nori onto the rice.

Roll up and, if necessary, moisten the sealing side of the nori to make it stick. Compose the other sushi in the same way. Wet the blade of the knife and cut the sushi into thick rounds. Arrange on a plate with the cut side up and serve accompanied by the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP.

Arugula salad, with all its ingredients, has interesting properties that are beneficial to our bodies. Rocket salad, in particular, offers a high proportion of fibre and calcium.

Radishes have a very high water content and also contain minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus; B vitamins, vitamin C and folic acid. Thanks to all these substances, these vegetables offer purifying and diuretic effects. In addition, their consumption promotes sleep.

The walnuts included in the rocket salad also have many beneficial properties. They provide a valuable supply of omega 3 fatty acids, which are very good for keeping cholesterol levels in the blood under control. Walnuts also contain a high amount of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant, and arginine.

How to use balsamic condiments in cooking

If you love balsamic condiments and would like to find out more about new ways of making full use of their culinary characteristics, read on. We'll be offering suggestions, solutions and products you should try as soon as possible.

What are balsamic condiments and what are their main characteristics?

Balsamic condiments are food and wine products made from cooked must and wine vinegar. The combination of the latter, following the achievement of acetic fermentation, allows the development of different notes of flavour capable of enveloping and conquering every palate. In most cases, these condiments are dark and boast a sweet and sour flavour. There are various types, differing in density and taste.

Balsamic condiments owe their deliciousness above all to the ageing to which they are subjected: they are left to rest in wooden barrels for a long time. This allows them to acquire different nuances of flavour, which vary according to the type of wood in which they are stored. The role of balsamic condiments is to enhance the flavour of each dish and give each dish many different nuances of taste.

cooking seasonings

How to use these products in the kitchen?

These products are particularly popular because of their versatility. In fact, they can be used for both starters and other courses (including dessert).

Depending on the type of product and the seasoning chosen, it will be possible to create a combination of flavours that will tickle even the most difficult palates.

There are so many recipes for using these condiments in the kitchen. They are best appreciated in combination with cooked and raw vegetables. They can also be used for the preparation of meat dishes and to further flavor buffalo mozzarella , some sauces and salads .

The preparation of crispy pancetta with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

First take the bacon with the rind, then prepare the barbecue and brush the cooking grid. In this case, we recommend preferring indirect cooking : a method in which the food is placed away from the flame and the barbecue is covered with the appropriate lid.

To implement this cooking technique, light the fire only on the sides of the barbecue. Then prepare a pan with the garlic, rosemary, bay leaf and half a liter of water and place it on it. Spread the bacon on the top of the grill and lower the heat. After closing the lid, let the bacon cook for about a couple of hours.

The peppers, on the other hand, must be cooked directly: you can put them whole on the grill and check them often until the end of cooking. At this point you can compose the course of crispy pancetta with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena . To do this, you will have to cut the bacon into small pieces and turn it a little in the pan to make it crunchy. Then you can cut the peppers into pieces (slightly larger than the cubes of bacon), and then season them with oil, pepper and salt. Assort the dish with the two preparations and pour a little Balsamic Vinegar to enhance the taste.

At the table with crispy pancetta with balsamic vinegar of Modena

As you have noticed, with few ingredients and with little effort you will conquer the whole table and surely there will be someone who will want to steal the recipe! This dish will be a pleasant surprise for your guests: each course of crispy bacon with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena will offer an unforgettable taste. Try it with one of our products: you can find them here. Do not hesitate to contact us for advice on choosing the right balsamic vinegar!

Whatever the case may be, we suggest the Caprese meatballs with balsamic vinegar. This dish, which is particularly suitable for the summer, combines all the typical flavours of summer with an extra touch of deliciousness.

A tricolour recipe with a Mediterranean flavour

The triad that most represents our country is undoubtedly the one that comes from the union of mozzarella, tomato and basil. These three excellences of our territory combine perfectly with each other and can be defined as the tricolour of Mediterranean cuisine.

The tomato is the emblem of southern Italy: with its bright colour it evokes warmth, tradition and conviviality. It is versatile and can be used in combination with many different foods. Mozzarella is a sweet, milky treasure chest that captivates with its flavour and texture. And finally, there's basil, which brightens up and adds character to countless dishes, including our meatballs from Capri with balsamic vinegar. The balsamic vinegar is the very ingredient that will give that extra touch of deliciousness to this must-try recipe.
Let's get to the heart of this recipe made to impress... with simplicity!
We advise you to buy excellent raw materials, as they will give the dish an added taste and authenticity. Here are the proportions for ten Caprese meatballs with balsamic vinegar.

  • 10 cherry tomatoes,
  • 10 leaves of fresh basil,
  • 10 mozzarella cherries,
  • 150 g breadcrumbs,
  • 150 g 00 flour,
  • 150 ml of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena I.G.P.,
  • 3 whole eggs,
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation of Caprese meatballs with balsamic vinegar

Start by cutting the cherry tomatoes in half vertically. Remove the pulp using a carpet knife or a teaspoon. Once the pulp is removed, place a mozzarella and a basil leaf inside the tomato and make sure the ends of the tomatoes fit together. Now place the flour, beaten whole eggs to which salt and pepper have been added, and the breadcrumbs in three different bowls.

Take the caprese morsels and dip them first in the flour and then in the eggs, making sure to let the excess drip off before "dipping" them in the breadcrumbs. Once this is done, plunge them into a pan of boiling oil. Remove the caprese balls as soon as the breadcrumbs are golden brown. The browning is a sign not to be underestimated: it will confirm that the mozzarella has become soft and stringy! Leave the Caprese meatballs to cool and in the meantime prepare the balsamic vinegar reduction. Simply take a narrow, high-sided pan, pour in the specified amount of balsamic vinegar and cook over a low heat for 3 or 4 minutes.

Then you can deal with the seasoning for the grilled leeks: wash and finely chop the herbs (mint, parsley, dill and rosemary) on a chopping board.
