Saturday night’s forecast was cold and rainy so we decided it was the perfect night to stay in and try making sushi for the first time. A few “how-to” YouTube videos later, we were off to the store for all our supplies… bamboo mat roller, seaweed, sushi grade fish and super sticky rice. Surprisingly we already had most of the ingredients at home. We weren’t quite sure what to expect but felt confident and were excited to give it a go.
We’ve heard mixed reviews about homemade sushi but we found it to be pretty easy, so much fun and it tasted awesome. I have to give serious props to Sushi Master Dan since I pretty much sat at the sushi bar and watched. He made awesome salmon and tuna nigiri, homemade crab mix for California rolls, a Philly roll, a rainbow roll and some other creations using salmon, tuna, crab, avocado, cucumbers and seaweed. Yum. My contribution was homemade turkey & veggie lettuce wrap appetizers and beer refills.
We both agree that sushi making would be a really fun at-home date night with other couples. Who’s in?
