Default My first attempt at making sushi rolls

Been meaning to do this for quite sometime. Finally had the time and energy and I must say I was quite happy with the results.

First, the setup:

Getting ready to start getting my sushi on. But first, I think I owe myself an appetizer and a drink. My world-famous (at least in MY world) shrimp cocktail, with a Rebel Yell Ginger Bourbon "starter"

Success! My first sushi roll - a modified California roll with cucumber, crab, avocado, cream cheese, dusted with black sesame seeds, and pickled ginger, wasabi, and lime ponzu on the side - and of course some sake!

So, after spending HOURS preparing sushi, I must say I understand why you pay so much for it in restaurants. It is time-consuming, difficult work. Everything has to be done JUST right. But it was worth it. I made California rolls (inside and out), a Philly-California roll (cream cheese), and using some of my shrimp from the shrimp cocktail I made shrimp rolls and a roll that involved home-made kewpie (Japanese) mayonnaise with chopped up shrimp that was amazing. Luckily I made quite a lot so I get to share it tomorrow with my wife and maybe a few lucky co-workers

That looks pretty amazing!

For me, sushi is on that list of things I prefer to pay for rather than making it. But it looks like you did pretty damn good!

Thank you! I've been taking some stabs and sashimi and nigiri, but this is a LOT more labor intensive, though now that I have my method of making the rice down pat it will be easier now.

Love the sashimi but always afraid of not buying the right cut of fish.

The best fish is fresh that you have caught and dispatched yourself. VERY important how you treat the fish after it comes out of the water. Killing immediately, bleeding it quickly, and getting it on ice is crucial.

But damn is it worth it when you get it right!

Favorite roll I'll make when we get into tuna is tuna, fresh mango, seeded habanero and cilantro. All sorts of fun things you can experiment with.
