My sister gave us sushi plates and knives for my birthday. She thought there was a sushi mat included, but there was not. We searched for a sushi mat (OK, we didn't search very hard) but didn't find one. Until DH managed to find one for my Christmas present! So now we have a complete sushi kit. And here is what we did with it:
We made three kinds of sushi: California rolls (crab sticks, avocado, and cucumber) and two veggie rolls (cream cheese, cucumber, and avocado and scallion, green pepper, and zucchini). We weren't going to try to do anything with raw fish, so this was pretty simple.
Here are a few action shots:
It was much easier to make than we expected. I thought this was something you had to train to do for years and your first attempt would be disaster. But we stuck to some easy recipes and good directions (find them here). It was a lot of fun, too.
This is International Blog Delurking Week. I know there are some of you lurking here and I would love to get to know you better. Leave a comment and tell me if you ever had or made your own sushi. What type of sushi do you like?
And, this is my first time participating in Show and Tell. Go to Mel's place to find out what others are showing.
Quiet house, happy kids…
