Happy Friday everyone! I am kind of jealous of all the people getting snowed in up north. I am sure it sounds more glamours than it actually is. We get yucky sleet here in DC-which causes people to drive like idiots.
Whether you are getting snowed in, or not, here is a fun weekend activity that you can do! MAKE SUSHI!
For my dad’s Christmas present I wanted to do something different than just giving him a gift. So I decided that a sushi making evening would be fun and delicious as well. So I bought the ingredients and headed to my parents to make this amazing feast. My dad has mastered the art of the hand roll and I am getting pretty good at rolling maki rolls-so together we made a great team.
Unfortunately I don’t have too many pictures of me making the actual sushi-my hands were covered in rice the whole time. So, here is a great picture tutorial for maki rolls and one for hand rolls. You can get creative and fill it with whatever you like! The secret is to not fill it up too much and make sure the rice goes all the way to the side of the seaweed wrapper. And most importantly-it is a ton of fun so if it looks ugly who cares?!
Have you made sushi before? Do you have any tricks?
