I love sushi. I really shouldn’t have to write anything more, but really – I LOVE IT! The problem is… my husband doesn’t like like it much, so I don’t have it as often as I would like. So I decided I was going to make it myself and invite some girl friends over so they could enjoy some too.
I have now made it 3 times and this one is my favorite! Enjoy!
Things you need to make homemade sushi: white rice, 8 ounces of imitation crab, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 2 avocados – cut into little squares, square seaweed you can find the kind I got HERE, sushi mats you can find mine HERE.
Take two cups of rice and let it soak in water for about 20 minutes. (That will help it get more sticky!)
Let the rice cool. (I spread it out on plates to let it cook faster.)
While the rice is cooking, shred your imitation crab and mix it with cream cheese.
Cover a bamboo sushi mat with plastic wrap. Place a sushi sheet rough-side up on the mat.
Moisten your hands and scoop a handful of rice onto the seaweed. Press the rice to spread it evenly up to the edges, moistening your fingers as you go.
Press the rice to spread it evenly up to the edges of the nori, moistening your fingers as you go.
Using both hands, carefully flip the seaweed over and put the rice on the bottom.
Scoop some cream cheese mixture and avocado onto the sushi roll.
Roll the sushi away from you with your hands, tucking the insides as you go. Roll a little, then unroll and pull plastic away so it won’t roll up into the sushi. Then roll again. Repeat that process until it is all rolled up!
It doesn’t look too pretty on the the edges, but once you cut it, it looks amazing!
Cut the sushi into 6 pieces.
I love my sushi with Wasabi (you can find a tube of it HERE), an AMAZING sauce called Unagi Sushi Sauce (you can find it HERE), and soy sauce. Some people love to eat it with ginger, but I don’t love it so it isn’t pictured. Ha Ha!!!
You can also find most things for sushi at the grocery store instead of Amazon. 🙂
Happy Sushi Making!
