Sushi Fun!

Last night Thomas, Rose and Chris came over to make sushi. Thomas was the official supervisor, Rose was the head chef and Chris was the prep cook and Patrick gathered ingredients (almost as tough as supervising). All the carrots, peppers, cucumbers had to be cut into long slivers. That is by far the most time consuming part of making sushi! I was on disaster management duty with the kids-making sure the crying was at a minimum.

There was lots of learning on how to properly roll the sushi-definitely harder than it looks. With a bit of encouragement and guidance from Chris, Patrick rolled an inside-out-roll with sesame seeds on the outside. He was quite proud (see photo).


Oh, and this doesn't count as a new recipe, unfortunately, because Patrick made sushi on New Year's Eve.

Patrick - i'm not a sushi fan because of the dried seaweed and wasabi but I had a Thai version where the roll was in that rice paper instead of seaweed and it contained lobster, passion fruit ponzu, sushi rice, avacado, Thai herbs, mango, coconut, and macadamias. It was one of the best things I have ever had. The dipping sauce sauce was light and definetly had chilis. Oh, and the lobster in it was from Maine!

Oops, the passion fruit ponzu is the dipping sauce.
