Sushi Night!

Every so often, Crystal and I will have a homemade sushi night. Surprisingly, making sushi isn't as hard as you might think. It just takes a little patience and the right ingredients.

The chief component is short-grain Japanese rice, along with rice vinegar, sugar, salt and sheets of dried seaweed for the exterior. Mix in various vegetables, fish and meat. Tada! You're all set. I won't bore you with a detailed description of how to make sushi, but there's a plethora of simple recipes all over the internet. You can surely find one that suits your tastes.

What are some of my favorite sushi rolls?

Unagi Roll - unagi (eel), avocado, cucumber, daikon sprouts, sesame seeds, sweet unagi glaze

Philadelphia Roll - smoked salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, avocado

Spicy Tuna - tuna, spicy mayonnaise, roe, scallions

Spider Roll - fried soft-shell crab, avocado, lettuce, spicy mayonnaise, cucumber, roe

Tako Roll - tako (octopus), cucumber, avocado, lettuce
