Sushi has been a favorite snack loved by many for years. But have you ever tried to make it yourself at home? It's so much easier than you think. We decided we would spend the night in with family and friends making our favorite meal… and we must say, it was A LOT more pleasing to the wallet. We were able to feed 7 people AND have enough for more rolls the next day! Who doesn't love that?
What you'll need:
Sushi rice (cook this as it reads on the box. This takes about 20-30 minutes to cook fully, so you want to have this ready to go on the stove before anything else)
-1/3 cup Rice vinegar, 2 tbsp of white sugar, 1 tbsp of salt
-Your choice of seafood (Shrimp, crab, salmon)
-Your choice of cucumbers, avocado and cream cheese (or all of the above!)
Start by cutting up your ingredients into long slithers.
Once your rice is done cooking, add your mixture of the rice vinegar, salt and sugar as listed above.Mix this together evenly, then press the rice into a thin layer on your seaweed sheet. Make sure to place your seaweed sheet on aluminum foil in order to roll the sushi later. Use the rice vinegar on your fingers to help the rice from sticking to you.Place your ingredients of choice in the center of the sheet.Take your foil and use it to roll your seaweed sheet. Take the first end of your seaweed sheet and hold your ingredients in place with your fingers. Let the end you are rolling, meet the ingredients and fold tight. You will have to roll over once more.
Once you have your sushi roll, cut into slices.Place together and drizzle sushi sauce on top, and you're ready to serve!
