First time making sushi rolls was a wild, delicious, unexpected success. The rice was sticky, the fish was fresh, the flavor was exceptional, and our tummies got fuller than full. We had our hesitations, but everything turned out wonderfully. We used salmon, shrimp, imitation crab, cream cheese, pickled cucumbers, green onions, and avocado, ending up with four good-sized rolls. We also had some (instant) miso soup and sake to make the meal complete. I am already excited to do it again with different variations...and maybe a few more people to help us eat it all.
Finely diced imitation crab. We mixed half of this with two teaspoons Miracle Whip per a suggestion found on Google. I couldn't taste the difference between the rolls with the Miracle Whip and the rolls without. Probably do without that next time.
We filled the rolls too full at first and it took a few tries to get it to where we could actually complete the rolling process.
What a beauty. Yeah, I think this must have been one of mine. ;)
Look at that raw salmon. Mmm.
And voilà! Or however you say that in Japanese.
