1. The Market Hall Mercat de l’Olivar in Palma de Mallorca

The market hall is definitely worth a visit! In the brightest colours, the Spanish market stalls offer Mediterranean fruit, vegetables, meat, ham and in particular a huge selection of fish and seafood from the Mediterranean.


I always have my camera with me on such tours in order to photograph this flair, this abundance and this huge offer.

Tuna Sushi with Strawberries

I find the tuna sushi with strawberries particularly fantastic.

Yosushi owner Thomas Wilden used to cook at the Richmond Hotel in Geneva at two Michelin-star level. He was the first to open his sushi stand here in the market hall in Palma and offers locals and tourists extraordinary creations such as “Flamed Nigiri Sushi”.

Here the fish is lightly cooked on the rice ball and gets an extraordinary smoked taste.

Prepare rice
  • 125 g Sushi rice
  • 250 g water
  • 2 EL rice vinegar I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt
  • 1 TL sugar I use brown raw cane sugar.
  • 4 g salt I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt
ginger mayonnaise
  • 25 g Gari sweet-sour pickled sushi ginger
  • 1 EL Mayonnaise
  • 3 EL Créme Fraîche
  • 1 Prise Cayenne pepper
  • 1 TL lemon juice
  • 4 Prisen salt I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt
  • 2 Streifen tuna fillet
  • 6-8 Stück strawberries
  • 2-3 Stück nori leaves
  • 1 TL wasabi sesame Or sesame light/dark
  • 4 EL sweet soy sauce
  • 4 EL soy sauce
  • 1 TL Wasabi
  • Wash the rice up to seven times until the water is clear. Mix the wet rice with the water in a pot or in a rice cooker, bring to the boil and let it swell with a lid at low temperature. Please pay attention to the quantities of the rice cooker, then the rice cooking will be done by itself. Heat rice vinegar and do not boil, dissolve salt and sugar in it. I tend to use brown sugar because I like the taste very much. Mix the cooked rice in a bowl with the rice marinade carefully and evenly and cover the prepared rice with a damp kitchen towel.
  • Place the nori leaf on the bamboo mat.

  • Place the rice on the nori leaf evenly to slightly above the edge. Then turn the nori leaf over.

  • Gari, this is the typical sweet and sour pickled ginger, cut into small pieces and mix with the remaining ingredients. Spread the mayonnaise sauce horizontally on the middle of the nori leaf.

Technical note: Ura-Maki (裏巻き) means "rolled from the inside", this is also known as California Roll. The rice is attached to the outside of the Nori leaf. Ura-Maki are not traditional Maki and have their origin, it is assumed, among Japanese Americans at the Pacific coast of the USA.
These are yosushi-rolls.
