Since Sushi is one of the only remotely healthy things my son will eat without complaints, I thought it would be a fun thing for us to learn together. I also figured it would be a skill that help him woo women in a few years.
I searched for some recipes and found Just One Cookbook's recipe for sushi rice. I sort of followed her instructions, except that I do not own a rice cooker, so I just used a pan and followed the directions on the bag. She also suggests mixing the rice in a large wooden bowl called a "hangiri". I used what I had-a plastic bowl adorned with the Texas flag.
I did buy the little roller mat thingy. We added crab, onions, radish, cucumber and avocado to ours and then rolled it up.
We dipped them in wasabi, soy sauce, Thai chili sauce or spicy mayo. In case you didn't know (I didn't) spicy mayo is merely mayonnaise mixed with sriracha hot sauce.
We've made them a few more times since, and as I am typing this up, I think we need to make them again soon.
Do you have a favorite sushi recipe?
