I Made Sushi (And I Lived to Tell About It)

Mircea and I are obsessed with sushi. OBSESSED. So naturally we eat a whole lot of it. We're not even picky. We like it all. The fancy restaurants, the market, hell, if someone was selling it on the street we'd probably buy it. So we started to make our own, and if I may say, it's at the very least, grocery store quality. I sort of have a knack for this thing. I bought my little "sushi deluxe" kit on Amazon, and it's awesome. Great book with lots of tricks and recipes, as well as some pretty nice little chopsticks with rests and some other stuff. The only thing I still need is a rice paddle, and I'll get that soon enough (I haven't had time to go back to the Asian market). I want to take a picture of it sometime because I think it is beautiful and it sure is tasty. I did have a Wasabi incident though and Mircea and I almost died, but other than that it was great. I made tuna rolls on Sunday and I'm making salmon rolls tonight. We'll probably die of mercury poisoning, but it's a risk we're willing to take!

YAY for sushi - we adore making that at home here too. I even sent adam to a sushi making class one year for his christmas gift. He loved it! Check your local sushi restaurants to see if they do classes!

Where do you get the sushi-grade fish? We tried to get some at Whole Foods and they said it was a little sketchy for sushi...
Glad that the wasabi incident didn't kill you and Mircea. :-)
