Sushi …

When I asked my family yesterday what they would like to eat for Sunday was an unanimous vote for sushi, homemade sushi !!!

Of  course, I promised them for a few weeks now, that one day I am going to make them homemade sushi but even though I bought all that I needed, I was kind of afraid to do it.

Well today I said let’s do it !!!

Ingredients for about 40 pieces:

  • 5 seaweed sheets
  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can flaked salmon or tuna
  • 3-4 tbsp sesame seed ( optional )
  • 2-3 cm fresh ginger
  • wasabi
  • say sauce
  • teriaky sauce

I am going to let the picture explain you how I did it, especially because Cristina was taking the pictures and it was a very big help !!!

I always liked to have pickled ginger …but when I wanted to buy it I read the info on the jar and I gave up … I did not get  why for a pickled ginger you need so many weird ingredients ?!? So I used some pickled chili instead ….

Bon Appetite !!!

PS.  It was a success after all 🙂

Wash and drain on paper towel the salmon pieces. Place them on a tray. Season them with salt, pepper and drizzle lemon juice and olive oil. Bake the salmon for about 10 minutes. Whisk together honey and lemon juice. Remove the salmon from the oven and glaze the pieces with the honey mixture, set the oven on broil and bake them for 10 more minutes or until a nice brown color set up on the top but be careful not to overcooked it .

Cut out the 1-1.5 inches of the asparagus ends and then cut them in pieces. place the asparagus on a tray and seasoning with salt and pepper. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil and bake it for about 10-15 minutes until done but crispy.

Bon Appetite !
