Homemade Sushi a la Carte

Salmon and Tuna are our favorite fish, especially when eaten in Sushi or Sashimi form.

Tonight after a quick dash to my local Asian Market – New York Mart – to get some Seasoned Rice Vinegar, I set on the task of preparing our favorite family dinner!

I have a mad passion for Japan, Japanese food and Japanese Culture, and after my loving husband took me on a fantastic trip to Japan, that passion became an obsession ❤

  • I rinsed and cooked my rice (no science there, just follow the instructions on the Sushi Rice container) but remember, its a delicate grain so handle it with the right tools

  • I sliced my salmon and tuna
  • Sliced the cream cheese – below’s picture shows my son preparing his own roll, Tuna, Cream Cheese and lots of Sriracha Mayo

Served with some crunchy Salmon Skin and Seaweed Salad it was the perfect meal with my loving family…..<3

Of course the meal wouldn’t be complete without a bottle of Sake right?
