Sushi at Home

Our whole family loves sushi but Sushi at restaurants can be so expensive. My husband has researched and figured out how to make great sushi rice and we love to experiment with different types of sushi rolls. Sometimes we just make a platter full of easy, simple California rolls and other times we get exotic and make Eel rice. We try keep the ingredients on hand for sushi so it is easy to roll up a few rolls without running to the store. Here is a list of some of those ingredients:
  • Nori (the seaweed for wrapping the sushi rolls)
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Soy sauce
  • Crab for California Rolls (we use imitation crab that we buy at a local oriental market)
  • Cucumbers
  • Avocado
  • Eggs for making Tamago ( the Japanese name for a sweet egg omelet)
For my local friends, the oriental market we frequent for our sushi supplies is Gigi's Oriental Market, 1751 E Edgewood Dr, Lakeland, FL 33803, (863) 683-6778 and for a bigger selection but a little further drive a great market is MD Oriental Market in Brandon.
