Recipes That Worked: Simple Sushi

8 April 2013

Last month, The Boy and I decided to test our ability to make delicious, easy sushi. We had a craving one weekend, and that the craving needed to be filled. [We only used one recipe, the rest we learnt as we went.]
1. Collect your fillings - we chose salmon & avocado. Since The Boy wasn't too keen on the safety of raw fish from the market, we shocked it with heat on the skillet for a few seconds. Cut the salmon and avocado into thin vertical slices.

2. We used this sushi rice recipe; worked like a charm. Lay it out in a thin layer, or else you won't have enough seaweed sheet to roll. Thinner than this if you can; The Boy liked his stuffed to the brim.

3. Place your chosen fillings in the center. Intermingle or lay side-by-side. Leave some room around the edges!

4. Roll away! Slice & Manger!
Bon appétit

  4. Um, I am so impressed that you were able to make sushi!! That is crazy. One of the things on my life list is to learn how to make sushi like a pro.

    I'm going to be coming to Chicago for a weekend in May! I haven't been in years and years and would love if you could pass on some of your favourite places I should visit while I'm there!

  6. This is very impressive, in my opinion you have to be very neat and attentive to detail to create this dish. I am soo not a fan of sushi, I knew I didn't like it before I tried it but I tried it just the same. As suspected, not really my thing but I appreciate its colourful appearance :)

  7. I love Sushi and you've made it look so easy to make. It always looked so fiddly to me but I'm going to try it now! x


Thanks for stopping by. À plus mes belles!
