    Default Sushi fixings (without raw fish)

    Looking for ideas...

    I plan to purchase some Sushi stuff so next time the nephews visit, I
    can get at least the older one (Dyson will be 6 on July 10th) to help me
    with it. He was remarkably coordinated making the onion skin easter
    eggs. Morgan just turned 4.

    Morgan the younger broke 4 eggs and I finally just asked him to hand me
    the skins so I could wrap instead. <g> He was ok with that.
    Both of the boys love sushi thanks to their parents eclectic tastes.
    Sis' is also teaching them to eat chicken feet since I'll give her some
    from time to time. ;-d

    Anyway, I really don't have access to sashimi grade fish here so plan to
    use things like cooked shrimp, cooked crab meat, strips of other cooked
    meat, (chicken, beef or fish, maybe some salmon), avocado slices,
    lengthwise slices of cooked carrots, lightly steamed choy cut into
    strips, etc. Maybe some red lumpfish caviar in small amounts.

    I've never actually made it but I used to watch mom and dad make it when
    I was younger and it does not look too hard. Place the Nori on the sushi
    mats, layer the rice on top and put the center stuffing on one side.
    Roll up, seal the nori with a little water like making won tons, chill
    and slice it into 1" bits.

    Should not be too hard.

    Looking for other stuffing/ingredient ideas.

    And yes, I have squid in the freezer. <g>

    Please don't forget the omelet <g>, many salads (ham, chicken, tuna,
    shrimp, etc) inside a piece of nori with rice below for stability; they
    and you should have a great time.

    California roll is everyone's favorite. All you need is fake crab,
    cucumber, pickled ginger and fresh ripe avacado. Lots of YouTube videos to
    show you how.

    Make sure you use the actual sushi rice

    Most kids like Philadelphia Rolls; cream cheese, salmon, cucumber. My
    sushi is not the greatest, but I do okay. I lay plastic wrap across a
    bamboo(?) mat, then I begin making the roll. The mat helps me when I
    roll the sushi.


    Have fun with your nephews. :-P

    Chicken feet, as I recently posted, are a waste of time and money.

    Cooked chicken or beef don't belong, though raw beef might be OK.

    > avocado slices,


    Avocado is always a good choice.

    Go vegetarian, though the caviar in tiny amounts could be nice. The
    bok choy could be a real turnoff for some folks.

    I don't like nori, but that's just me.

    I'd feel safe eating non-sashimi grade salmon in the tiny amounts you
    use in sushi.

    I am not a fish eater, but I do like veggie sushi. I like avocado,
    cucumber, carrot, maybe sprouts, egg - make a really thin omelet and
    julienne it, um, beets? <hiding>

    My SIL offers pickled cucumber.

    I think you could use anything julienned....


    I prefer them inside out. The fishiness of the nori is less pronounced,
    at least in my opinion.

    Lots of possibilities. In addition to the usual stuff I have used
    asparagus and salmon, green beans, mushrooms and scallion strips.

    Making the rice is probably the most important step. Also use less than
    you think you need when assembling.

    You usually don't refrigerate it. To slice just cut in half, stack the
    pieces and cut into thirds or fourths.

    Make the sushi rice and add chopped ingredients to it, or lay it on top.
    Looks nice and easier than the rolled sort.

    My daughter likes to stuff onigiri with lemon pepper tuna, which
    comes in those foil packs. That goes surprisingly well with
    prepared sushi rice, although I gather it is the norm to use
    unseasoned sushi rice. I'm sure the kids would have fun doing
    that--esp. squishing the rice into balls or forming triangles.

    Om If you WANT sushi grade fish try Catalina offshore Products. They
    have it at reasonable prices and several different fish.
