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.
Along with the chips and salsa for my Foodbuzz 24×24, I made beer battered veggies tempura as an appetizer. Beer batters are great because the carbonation in the beer makes the batter puff up more when frying, which gives the veggies a fuller crunch. For these, I chose to use Modelo beer to keep the Mexican-type theme for the party. I fried asparagus, green beans, poblano peppers and zucchini (one of the first from our garden!). These are great served with guacamole or ranch dressing to dip.
