sushi rolls


I do these in like one take as fast as I can, imagine if I took my time and was concerned with neatness? You can add avocado, cucumber, scallions, carrots there is no limit and on the inside out rolls you can sprinkle seasoned salts or toasted white or black sesame seeds on the rice or use fish roe for a nice orange color and flavor/texture burst, have fun and experiment. Cook the salmon if you want, just enjoy. Look back I have made this before.







There is more than just rolls...this style with the fish on top is called Nigiri. The rolls are called Maki. There are three items that I know of that are not raw, the tamago-yaki or omelette, the ebi or shrimp (but not the ama ebi, the sweet shrimp) and the unagi or anago or fresh or saltwater eel - I usually recommend these to people who are squeamish.

Yes, you have made this before and I'm certain I commented that sushi was one of my favorite foods, but I'm a roe kind of gal ... that and Quail eggs!

Actually, I like all sushi - it's not a food that intimidates me at all.

dana: bravo....I will do a quail egg and roe thing just for you......those are my fav's too!

Lara Croft said...

I can't believe how quickly you roll them up, and is that wasabi, the mouth burning paste?

buffalodickdy said...

The video really helps! I just bought spring roll wrappers for the first time ever yesterday- because you have inspired me to make some!

akakarma said...

I'll go ask at out local Korean restaurant. I think it might be fried shrimp? I could eat them by the dozens... I too loved the vid.

doggybloggy said...

emiline: why thank you ever so...

lara: when you dont edit or do it twice its easy...LOL

buff: hoooray....success is measured in funny ways.

aka: it is probably salmon skin hand rolls...do they look like an ice cream cone?

akakarma said...

Nope- it's eel. With something else- now I've caught your interest tho eh?

Beth said...

pinknest said...

i would be a disastrous mess if i tried to do this. everything would fall apart and be a million little pieces of sushi bits!

insane mama said...

I wish I could make sushi, it looks fun,but way too complicated for me.

SolarisGal said...

Gosh, I hope you washed your hands! Everytime that I go to a Sushi bar, it smells like fish tank!

Claudia said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE salmon. Love sushi. Love fish. Love your food. Love you. :) Did I get it all??!

doggybloggy said...

beth: sharp knives are the key...dull knives and someone gets hurt...

pinknest: it is suprisingly easy...

insane mama: make rice balls instead...put a little fish or shrimp in your hand and ball up some rice around it....

solaris: my hands are surgically clean...I wash them a lot.
