Yes, we made that yummy sushi!

here is a photo from week 2 of our sushi making adventure.  This week we made nigiri - tako, saba, salmon, spicy scallop, yellowtail, and more.  We also made little sushi cups with tobiko and seaweed salad!  Picture from week 1 to come...

the nigiri class was a little more challenging.  It takes a lot of practice to get the rice balls (that the fish sit on top of) just right.  The rice kept sticking on my fingers instead of sticking on the ball!  Now I know why they have those molds at the japanese dollar store.  Also, we learned how to slice the fish but realistically, i think i will look for pre-sliced fish or skip this type of sushi altogether.  Also learned that the belts (or strips of seaweed) only go around the cooked items.  the raw ones don't get a belt!
