FYI; would love to read your comments. There ain't much I won't eat, and sushi ain't one of them, I love the stuff. I tried my hand at making nigiri and maki sushi yesterday and the experiment turned out very well. Tina even likes the stuff but she's not the potential addict that I am. I just had leftovers for my supper tonight. There's an Asian market in Lexington that has everything and a couple of good seafood markets that gets 3-4 deliveries of fresh saltwater fish a week. I used tuna, sockeye salmon, and halibut for my first go at sushi. I couldn't find any roe, will have to order next time. Tuna and salmon were best; 'melt in your mouth' delicious. I can eat sushi and never feel like I've over ate; it is very light, healthy, eating. Making the rice for sushi was no big deal, but I went the simple route, watched a youtube video, and used a pre-mixed sushi rice vinegar instead of mixing my own. The nigiri is my favorite and is also the simplest; a hand formed bite sized oval shaped ball of sushi rice with a dab of wasabi (Japanese horseradish) and a thin slice of raw fish. Dip in sushi soy sauce and enjoy. There's something about that combo of flavors...... In between pieces of sushi 'cleanse the palate' with a bite of pickled ginger and move on to the next bite. Maki is veggies with fish and/or roe or squid etc. rolled up in a sheet of seaweed (nori) with the rice on the outside. Tina bought a bamboo mat for this and did an excellent job her first try. And, yes, I even bought some chop sticks. I've got a long way to go but I'm gonna learn to use them. Our Romanian son-in-law has taught us to appreciate the nuances of foreign cuisine, and I intend to entertain our kids with some Japanese table fare in the future. I've got to learn some other dishes. Any suggestions?
