This is my kids bait, whenever I want to make him more of the good kid he already is I make him his favorite thing to eat and that is anything with nori (seaweed). Sometimes I roll them into a ball sometimes I make fancy little triangles and other times I do the simplest thing possible and that is to make rolls or Maki-zushi or Norimaki but no matter how you spell it or what you call it this stuff tastes great.
After making the sushi rice and having added a little sweet rice vinager I then put it on a sheet of nori with a little wasabi, that I buy in 2 pound bags cause I use this stuff in other things as well like I will make wasabi mayonaise to put on a teriyaki chicken sandwich for example.
Any way today I am just using shrimp, cause thats what I have, my avocados are not ripe enough and I dont have cucumber and I dont feel like making little carrot juliennes. Roll it up, slice it either at an angle or straight across, arrange on a plate with some more wasabi and pickled ginger and enjoy.
Its so easy to make and the enjoyment of being able to gorge yourself is unmatched.
Edit : To iron that point home a little my guy says "daddy put some of those garbage beans with some of that crab salt and roll it up with rice in the seaweed.. I bet it tastes good"...so I did...he ate it. I tasted it ..it was like having salty peanuts or corn nuts wrapped up in a sushi concoction..... seemed like more of a kids flavor or something you would have with a coca-cola. Plus to add to the connundrum - we dont drink soda - only in a special "needs" basis, and thats a fact, we are a low sodium low sugar house with no candy or soda, but plenty of cakes. You should get to know little debbie and I am sure I know dolly madison isnt she related to betty crocker? Let me ask my Aunt Jemima or my Uncle Ben or maybe Captain Crunch, somebodies gotta know. Chef boy are dee is too busy and so is Mrs. Pauls so maybe its Long John Silver or no...I know if we just ask the peanut gallery some who haw will chime in.
