Just wanted to share my delicious lunch on Friday. I made homemade sushi (which I’ve been doing a lot of lately since I’m barring myself from going to the little sushi place near my house) and I’m having tons of fun finding new fillings!

Friday’s rolls had tempura asparagus, cream cheese, and avocado in one; the other had tempura krab (which is amazing btw), tempura asparagus, cream cheese, and avocado. So. Freaking. Good. In retrospect I should have gotten a bigger plate but it just looked so indulgent on a little one.

If you’ve ever wanted to try making your own sushi, TRY IT! I used this recipe for the rice (having short grain rice is very important, splurge and spend the $7 to get a small bag of it) and just had fun trying combinations! I’m not comfortable using raw fish yet but I love krab! First, check out my picture, then look at my list of possible fillings.

Possible sushi fillings

Veggies

  • asparagus
  • bell pepper
  • mushrooms
  • onion
  • avocado
  • cucumber
  • carrot
  • Japanese radish

Proteins

  • fried tofu (which is next on my list to try; I’ll cut very thing strips and pan fry or deep fry them)
  • shrimp
  • krab
  • fish (make sure you get your fish from a reputable source–get to know your fishmonger!)
  • teriyaki beef

Misc

  • cream cheese
  • spicy mayo (mix mayo with sriracha)
  • sweet & sour sauce
  • eel sauce
  • wasabi
  • anything you can think of!! An important part of making sushi at home is just having fun and trying new things

Also, this is my 100th blog post!! Thank you to all of you who have stuck around through my hiatuses and sporadic updates. <3
