Home Made Sushi

The other day was my first attempt at making sushi since I was in culinary school. Amazingly enough, it turned out great. There were of course things I could have done better. I should’ve purchased a sushi mat instead of using plastic wrap and a towel to decrease the amount of rice I used in each sushi roll. Overall, it was delicious and I was able to control everything. I knew the fish was fresh and I had the exact amount that I needed. The one thing I wish was more available is a soy paper wrap. There’s nothing better than a baked hand crab roll from Katsuya. I could recreate it if soy paper wasn’t so difficult to get a hold of.

Happy Cooking!
