Is there something you love eating so much and want to learn how to make it yourself? Well, for me, that’s sushi!
I’m not someone who loves eating sashimi – that raw fish is just too much for me since I don’t eat wasabi, but I like how sushi and maki, in particular, are so easy to eat. It’s packed with rice and a bunch of veggies, and you just pop it in your mouth to enjoy. They are filling and there aren’t too many dishes to wash too, haha.
So, with my sister-in-law visiting this weekend, she taught me how to make homemade sushi. I was excited to learn because it’s my son’s favourite that I hope to pack every-so-often in his lunchbox come September when school resumes.
Here’s my first attempt of making homemade sushi. Some things to keep in mind:
- Make sure you roll it very tight or everything is going to come out when you cut it.
- Don’t put too much filling or it’ll just come back out when you’re rolling it.
- Cut the filling in thin strips so you can layer different toppings and have more variety.
- Don’t wait too long to roll the rice in the sushi. It hardens, but it does need to be cool or it doesn’t roll properly.
- Use water on the knife when cutting your sushi so it doesn’t stick so easily on the seaweed.
I would rate my experience as a 8 out of 10. Surprisingly, I managed to roll them properly. Let’s see if I can do it all by myself next time when I attempt it again in the kitchen. Just a shoutout to my sister-in-law for teaching me how to make sushi. Thanks for the fun and yummy experience!
