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!
