This summer has been gorgeous, but this last month has been so rainy here! The good news is that my garden is getting so big and I have been getting tons of kale and lettuce out already. There is something special about growing your own food. Even with some rainy days, I seem to crave light, fresh food in the summer.
Let’s face it, we all need more sushi in our lives. But, unless you buy the questionable grocery store stuff, it can be so EXPENSIVE! In the past, I have always been underwhelmed by the sushi I’ve made at home. It was OK, but nothing like those crazy rolls that you can get at the nice sushi places! This time, I was on a mission to make a restaurant-quality roll, that is easy to make at home.
I have to say that poke might be the best thing about Hawaii. I ate SO much poke when I lived there. Since being back in the mountains, I hardly have eaten it at all. Until recently. Ben and I are trying a Pescatarian diet, so we have been trying to find new ideas for meals. Now I am hooked again. This recipe is SO easy and SO delicious. This is great for lunch by itself or for dinner served with cilantro-lime rice.
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.
