Hello again all,
Today I've finally taken pictures of my sushi, and can say that I'm eating it all the time now, it's a healthy, great alternative to the traditional PB&J sandwich for lunch.
One picture is the finished product of the sushi plate I enjoyed.
We often have sushi parties with friends and relatives.
The ones in the picture were simply a scrambled egg with cucumber, and the other was a can of tuna with mayo and salt and pepper.
I wanted to show how simple it is to do with everyday items around the house. Yesturday I had shrimp and avocado, it's a great way to use up that left over avocado.
Other great items to put into it are mango, avocado, matchstick sliced carrots, mushriooms, crabmeat, smoked salmon, chives, asparagus, or bell peppers.
I have found in the grocery stores they often have and Asian food aisle or near the fish they have a display of sushi making products all together. It's quick and easy to get the ingredients to make this delicious, quick snack.
What you need to do it, well I have a picture of this to, the rice is short grain, it often says on the package how to make it and that it's for sushi, but my kids love it plain, and they just eat all the ingredients. Nori paper that I forgot in the picture,
but it's just roasted seaweed. You cook the rice as directed on the package, add seasoned rice vinegar (about 2 Tbsp. per cup), wet fingers and place rice on Nori paper as shown in the picture below, leaving space at the top for the paper to 'catch on' as
you roll it up. Put the ingredients (not to thick) on the bottom half and roll with your rolling mats (these are reusable). Cut them up as I have shown again, in half, wetting the knife first, then each half in half, then each piece in half again. It comes
up to 8 pieces per paper. You can add the hot-and-spicey wasabi sauce and sweet sushi ginger if you wish as you eat it!
Delicious and simple.
