What's for dinner? - Sushi [Recipe]

Delicious Sushi
Sushi, a Japanese dish that can be made with much creativity. Examples of sushi are makizushi, inarizushi and nigirizuhi. Sushi is one of the healthier foods which is rather popular in Melbourne. Plus, it's affortable and comes in a wide variety of choice of fillings. There are also quite a few good Japanese restaurants here that offer scrumptious Japanese cuisine, including sushi.


Well, for my dinner, I choose the make the most basic sushi, makizuhi. Among the ingredients I use are roasted seaweed (nori sheets), avocado, cucumber, rice, tuna, egg and cooked Japanese rice. To start, I seasoned the cooked rice with vinegar, sugar and some salt. Then I roll the ingredients with rice and nori sheet before cutting it to slices to eat. Of course, you can make sushi in the uramaki style, where the rice is folded outwards with the seaweed and fillings inside (People often sprinkle sesame seeds, fish roe or seaweed on the sides of this type of sushi). Apart from that, the fillings can be substituted with various ingredients from smoked salmon, pickled carrots, crab sticks to fried shrimps. Sushi is often complimented with wasabi, pickled ginger and soy sauce.

So want to have a healthier choice for dinner? Eat sushi! Itadakimasu (いただきます) ~
