A Girl Should Be Two Things: Classy & Fabulous. - Coco Chanel

I mentioned that at my Valentines Party that we made and ate sushi.... which this past year I discovered that I really love. I had never made it before though. It always seemed like it was too complicated, but its really not. So... I thought I would show you the process in case you ever wanted to make it yourself.

There are so many different types of Sushi that you can make. Some people get grossed out by the raw fish, but you don't have to make it with raw fish, you can use no meat at all OR what we used is cooked Teriyaki chicken. You can also use mayo in your sushi, but we chose to go the healthier route.

What we used:

Sliced Teriyaki Chicken
Sliced Avocado
Shredded Carrots
Sliced Cucumber
Cooked Rice
Seaweed Paper
Any sauces that you like to dip your Sushi in.
Bamboo Matt for rolling

Step #1- Put Seaweed paper on Bamboo Matt and Spread the rice on the Seaweed paper in a thin layer leaving an inch of space on the top.

Step #2- Lay out (in the middle) what you want in your sushi.

Step #3- Put a little bit of water on the inch space left on the Seaweed paper so you can roll it up and have it stick together.

Step #4- Roll it up with your hands and then roll it with the Bamboo Matt to make sure the roll is nice and tight.

Step #5- Cut up the roll into the thickness you like your sushi.

Step #6- You are now ready to eat your sushi. Dip in your favorite sauces and I suggest eating them with chopsticks. :o) Enjoy.

Wish I had some right now.....

I didn't know you liked sushi. If you come out here again we'll have to take you to the sushi house...it's to die for...the stuff you have dreams about after.

Kristy said...

Looks fun, but not delicious. Seaweed is so gross! :)

with no raw fish... I could eat it all the time! Maybe we could have a sushi night over here?

What? That sounds amazing. I am not into raw fish at all, but cooked chicken sounds so good. Yum!

Okay, stop it! I am totally craving sushi right now! I actually asked my sister if she wanted to get sushi tonight and she hasn't responded, dang it!

Did you know that the Happy Sumo has a special VIP email where you can get two for one offers sent to you monthly? It's like a voucher that you just take in when you go...

Yum! I love sushi. It is a touch on the expensive side (depending where you go) and it would be fun and cheaper to make yourself. Good work.
