My kids and I love (cooked) sushi. Although my 14 YO will eat pretty much any kind of sushi, even the raw stuff, I just can’t get over the raw fish factor so I stick to “safe” things like California Rolls, Caterpillar rolls (my favorite), vegetable rolls and anything with tempura. NEWS FLASH…. I like seared tuna! Had the opportunity to taste some at Bonefish Grill and my friends FORCED me to try it. I’m so glad I did! Now back to your regularly scheduled recipe.
With a family of seven, we just can’t afford to go out and get sushi as often as we would like. It’s too expensive! A friend suggested since I love to cook, I should start making my own. Truthfully, it never even crossed my mind!
So for the past few months I’ve been eyeing sushi-making kids on Amazon.com. After doing extensive research on all of the different kits, options, and recommendations, I ended up ordering this Sushi Rolling Kit, it had great reviews, simple instructions and didn’t include a lot of things I didn’t need or want cluttering up my already gadget-heavy kitchen.
I also did a lot of research on Nori before finally purchasing Sushi Nori Premium Roasted Organic Seaweed by One Organic.
I wasn’t disappointed with either item.
The only other item I would highly recommend is a very sharp knife. I ended up purchasing the non-stick Sushi Chef’s Knife by As Seen on TV. It was very sharp and made easy work of cutting the rolls perfectly. (PS I was not given these items to review. I purchased them on my own and recommend them because I like the products.)
We made three kinds of sushi: California Rolls, Cucumber Rolls, and Vegetable Rolls.
All three were a huge hit, easy to make and were gobbled up so quickly I’m surprised someone didn’t lose a finger.
