PRESSED CALIFORNIA SUSHI
Enough sushi already you would say ? Well, please bear with me while I’m sharing with you this last one sushi that I made, pressed California sushi. No rolling of sushi in involved on this one. The sushi rice is pressed into a pan instead. In Japan, an Oshi waku […]

SHRIMP ROLLS
If you google the word “shrimp rolls”, you will get over 5 millions images of shrimp rolls. Speaking of variety! These shrimp rolls are not wrapped in spring roll wrappers, wonton wrappers, rice, seaweed, or any other common wrappers. The shrimp rolls are wrapped using roasted bell peppers. I love […]

CHICKEN TERIYAKI ROLLS
The fun part about making sushi is you can pretty much roll in (or roll out) whatever you wish. These chicken teriyaki rolls are just one of the example. I also rolled in some avocados and spinach leaves. These rolls can be a complete meal on its own. These will […]

INARI SUSHI
Inari sushi is one of my favorite sushi that is very simple to make. Inari sushi is typically made of a deep-fried tofu skin pouch, called aburaage in Japanese, stuffed with seasoned sushi rice. Aburaage are skins made by lifting the skin off soy milk and drying it. The aburaage […]

SCALLOP, MAYONNAISE, POTATO AND SESAME ROLLS
After trying the shrimp, spinach, and wasabi mash rolls using mashed potatoes to replace sushi rice and they turned fabulous, I gave another different rolls using mashed potatoes a try. This time using scallop and mayonnaise. I gotta tell you these are really good too. I’ve always enjoyed eating scallops […]

If you think you need sushi rice to make rolls, well, I gotta tell you that you don’t have to have sushi rice. This shrimp, spinach and wasabi mash rolls definitely are not traditional sushi rolls you imagine. The sushi rice that is typically used is replaced with mashed potato […]

GREEN BEAN SUSHI BOATS
Sushi is absolutely beyond just raw fish. The thing you can make into sushi is really limited to your own creativity. You will see as I do more sushi posts (please bear with me). I’m not a chef. Just a mother who likes to experiment at kitchen and if I […]

MAZESUSHI
Mazesushi or known as mixed sushi is a common dish prepared at home in Japan. To me, mazesushi is like a deconstructed sushi roll. I find this very tasty, as I’m also a sushi fan. There are two stages to this recipe. First you gotta prepare the rice with the […]
