A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
I still remember the first time Meghan decided she wanted to go out for sushi. It was for her birthday. And it was complete shock to me and all of her friends because she didn’t even eat fish! But as she said, 1. I want to try some new things, and 2. I don’t have to eat sushi with fish to enjoy going out for sushi. In fact, you don’t have to go out for sushi to enjoy sushi. We have recently started making it at home, and while it is a bit of a labor of love, the results have always been delicious.
Last week we made 2 types of rolls:
Shrimp, avocado and cucumber
Peppers, avocado and cucumber
I made a batch of sushi rice (1 cup uncooked) and added 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar to it. Once the rice cooled, I spread it out onto 2 sheets of nori (seaweed). Sprinkle the rice with sesame seeds. We make the rice on the outside of the roll, so just flip the roll over and lay your fillings on the nori. Then roll them up. The shrimp was simply tempura shrimp that I bought at Whole Foods and reheated in the oven. They were the perfect size for sushi rolls.
Meg and I are already planning a 30RF Sushi Party!
