Sushi Making

Awhile back we attended a sushi making party and have wanted to try making sushi at home ever since. We finally did last night. It was really quick and easy, although not as pretty as the sushi we made with the supervision of the sushi experts. The thing that took the most time was waiting for the rice to cook in the rice cooker. We mixed up the rice and the sushi powder and made little sushi balls.

 

We put a dot of wasabi on the rice, then the sashi.  I think the fish I bought was tuna, but I’m not sure.

 
We also made some with fake crab and some with canned anchovies. I made a few rice balls with the leftovers.

 
RocketNews24 recently reported that eating  a teaspoon of wasabi a day will make you live longer.  Maybe we tried to live too long because Ted ended up scraping off wasabi that was too strong for him.

 
We made more than we could eat last night, so I wrapped it up and put it in the refrigerator for lunch today.  It was much easier than I thought, so we’ll probably be making sushi again soon.

  1. I am sure you had a great time. Now you know how much wasabi you want on your pieces and can 'tailor make' them. One reason for using wasabi is that it keeps the sushi fresh, this is especially important when you keep left overs for the next day.
    I hope you will make sushi again and try other types of fish. You can buy a tray of mixed sashimi at the supermarket and use those pieces.
    Happy 'cooking', happy eating!
