I'm a big fan of sushi, especially when I make it myself. I was especially proud of this batch. Oh, and that's a cutting board from ikea but it makes a lovely sushi table. ha ha.





There's a california, a philly, and some other traditional rolls but as usual a lot of them are improvised. The fourth roll from the left has roasted red peppers, cream cheese, and crab for example. Even though it's not traditional, it was delicious!

Yummy! It is pretty prevalent where I live but any time you order it it seems there really is never enough. I have friends that have sushi parties every once in a while. There is always enough then, but it never has a chance to leave the kitchen, lol.

Is sushi cheaper to make than it is to buy (lol). Looks delicious, I'll have to try the peppers, crab, and cream cheese combo!

Thanks, guys. It was delicious! It's almost uncomfortable to get used to having enough sushi to go around, cause there never seems to be enough when we order it. I started making my own because I lived in a tiny town with no sushi, but I've kept at it because it's so much fun! I forgot to mention that, after the photo, i drizzled some spicy mayo on the third from the left. That stuff makes any roll taste fantastic, and is a cinch to whip up!

Sushi is MUCH cheaper to make than to buy, once you've accumulated all the equipment. You need specific sushi rice, nori, a mat, and rice wine vinegar and then you're good to go! Fillings can get costly, but not near as costly as in a restaurant. The last time I made ten rolls and used sashimi, smoked salmon, cream cheese, avocado, shrimp, and a ton of other stuff and it cost me about $20. I also bought way too much of the meat fillings, so that drove up the price quite a bit.

There really never is enough sushi to go around when you order it.  If it's that much cheaper, I may have to try making it myself.  Your looks so yummy my mouth is drooling!!

That looks wonderful!  I have a HUGE craving now...

Question!  When you make your rolls do you cut the nori sheets in half?  Mine always end up too fat with too much rice and not enough filling and using a whole sheet of nori may be my problem...

Nope, I keep them whole but that's because I tend to overstuff my rolls with filling. I tried using half sheets, but for some reason they didn't hold together as well. It really is cheap. I invite friends over to help me eat it all, and try to eat the ones that won't refrigerate well first.

Just to give you an idea, when buying the meats (like sashimi, smoked salmon, crab, shrimp, etc) get MUCH less than you think you'd need. I usually get 1/8th lb of each three I buy and have plenty left over. A half an avocado provides about three rolls worth of filling as well.

If anyone is curious about the process, I'd be happy to take pictures and make a sort of sushi tute. :.)
