I love sushi rolls... they are easy to make, are fresh and healthy, filling and full of flavour - especially when you add wasabi and pickled ginger... yummo!!
The first time I had sushi was with Grandma when I was maybe 11 or 12. We went to SushiTrain in Broadbeach. I quite liked it, but probably enjoyed the experience and outing (on my own) with Grandma more.
I really fell in love with sushi while at college in Sydney... Having the beautiful Kabuki Shoroku Japanese Restaurant just a couple of doors down from JDW lead to me having a roll (or two) for lunch nearly every day.
The following year I learned to make homemade sushi with Dan and Stelle at Pine Avenue.
I usually make mine with cucumber, red capsicum, spring onions and tariyaki chicken or tofu, or salmon and avocado.
I also make a sauce of kikkoman with a bit of fresh chilli, garlic and vietnamese mint.
The instructions for cooking the rice are on the back of the 'sushi rice' packet and are pretty easy to follow. I find that about 1 cup of uncooked rice will make 4 full nori rolls.
