DIY Sushi

December 28, 2016 — by Chelsey Bishoff

Sushi has been a favorite snack loved by many for years. But have you ever tried to make it yourself at home? It’s so much easier than you think. We decided we would spend the night in with family and friends making our favorite meal… and we must say, it was A LOT more pleasing to the wallet. We were able to feed 7 people AND have enough for more rolls the next day! Who doesn’t love that?

What you’ll need:

Sushi rice (cook this as it reads on the box. This takes about 20-30 minutes to cook fully, so you want to have this ready to go on the stove before anything else)

-1/3 cup Rice vinegar,  2 tbsp of white sugar, 1 tbsp of salt

-Seaweed sheets

-Your choice of seafood (Shrimp, crab, salmon)

-Your choice of cucumbers, avocado and cream cheese (or all of the above!)

-Sushi sauce

-Aluminum foil

Start by cutting up your ingredients into long slithers.Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
