The key ingredients, and tools, we discovered were needed to start making sushi were:
- Sushi-grade fish
- Sushi rice (short, extremely sticky rice)
- Sushi vinegar
- Sushi Nori (sheets of seaweed)
- Other fillings (cucumber, avocado)
You can go to town on the other fillings for your sushi rolls. We opted to keep things simple with avocado and cucumber, but did try our hand at spicing up some of the tuna rolls with sriracha. We also picked up some crab sticks so we could try the classic California Roll.
AND this week in 2013, we tried out a local vegetarian restaurant and Luke showed off some of his fancy art skills.
Next weekend we'll be back in the UK to see family and friends (including long-time Something Saturdays fan Dave Wood ) so stay tuned for an extended post on our trip!
