Shaun has been craving sushi lately, but our whole eat-at-home plan generally precludes sushi because we don't live in a Japanese restaurant. However, we do have a sushi making set and I've been debating trying it again.
Whilst at Kroger the other day, I noticed their sushi bar (yes, our grocery has a sushi bar) sells individual containers of wasabi, ginger, and spicy mayo. We bought the spicy mayo, some crab and an avocado. So today, I took the leftover rice, a bit of rice vinegar, some nori, and a pinch of sugar and got to work.
The result? Two full sort of California sushi rolls (8 large pieces each), for much less than buying 6 smaller pieces at the sushi bar. And I still have lots of crab leftover, plus half a container of spicy mayo and half an avocado, so we can make more later this week
Shaun was more than happy to grab a snack bento for work. It's packed in a Lunchbots Duo, to give you an idea of container/sushi size. To the left, there are 6 big pieces of my California roll. To the right, he has orange slices, cantaloupe, honeydew and strawberry pieces. Soy sauce is in a separate container for dipping.
