While making unbelievable amounts of sushi at school the other night, it dawned on me that I have never shared any sushi recipes with you all. I was actually pretty surprised in myself, especially after working at Morimoto and telling you all about it! I promise I am here to make up for it with my spicy tuna and sushi rice recipes, as well as some cool tricks I learned in school.
I love making sushi at home because you can have a lot of fun with a group, plus you can make it for a fraction of a price! My friends and I made 15 rolls for only $60 last time, that included sashimi grade salmon AND tuna. Another great part of making sushi at home is you can put whatever you like in your own rolls, there are no rules to follow. Here are some photos from our sushi night at school. My tips for you are: 1. Less is more with the rice, try to use as little as possible. 2. Do not over-stuff your roll, or else it will not be easy to eat in one bite. 3. Try making cucumber cups to fill with sashimi (see photo above), this gives a lighter option without all the rice. 4. Be sure to rinse your sushi rice well, or else you will have a sticky paste. 5. Have fun and share with your friends! My spicy tuna recipe came from my Mom, so you know it is tried and true!
Yields about 8 rolls
