Douglicious Sushi

We attempted sushi using some of Doug’s tips and this recipe: http://japanesefood.about.com/od/sushiroll/r/californiaroll.htm - ginger and avocado are good for you, so we’re assuming this is too.




Doug’s Tips:


- Don’t cheap out on the ingredients, make sure they are real Japanese products.


- Rice Vinegar is important.


- If the Nori goes stale and mushy heat it over an element to crisp it up.


- Make sure the rice is warm (not hot) when you roll the sushi.


- Put plastic wrap on your bamboo mat so the rice doesn’t stick.


- Put mayo on the Nori to make everything stick together nicely.


- Use brand name Kikkoman soy sauce - it’s just better.


- You can roll the rice on the outside or inside!



Important rules to know (and possibly choose to break) before enjoying said sushi:

Enjoy!
