Make your own sushi

My friend’s son Bryce is crazy for sushi, so I set up a sushi making night just for him. At the Asian supermarket I picked up good quality sushi rice, sashimi, fresh wasabi, sushi vinegar, nori and a few rolling mats, plus cucumber and imitation crab.

I made the rice in advance by following the instructions on the package. I prepared a spicy crab filling by breaking up the crab and mixing it with sirachi and mayo, and sliced the cucumber and sashimi into strips too. I covered the sushi mats with plastic wrap and we were ready to go.

Assembling sushi for a personal meal is a lot of fun, as you won’t feel any pressure to get it perfect. Simply lay out the nori, cover it with a thin layer of rice, add your fillings and roll tightly. Let it sit for a few minutes before slicing with a hot, sharp knife. We made a few inside out rolls speckled with sesame seeds too.

Bryce not only ate his fill, but he told everyone he met for days that he had made his own sushi. He looks pretty proud of himself doesn’t he?

    We try to make sushi at least once a month. Some months it happens a few times! The kids love helping (and consuming)
