I have decided that I am tired of being afraid to make sushi at home. Sushi is one of my most favorite foods, and unless I figure out how to make it myself (or move) I will not be able to have it on a regular basis.
This coming weekend being Superbowl Weekend, I am going to attempt sushi to have during the game.
My real fear about sushi isn’t really the rolling- it’s the rice. The texture of the rice has to be perfect. So I’ve been researching the rice and methods of cooking. During the course of this research, I stumbled upon a great cooking resource called www.imcooked.com. Using the search feature, I found numerous videos on how to prepare sushi. This one I found particularly entertaining and 80s-rific.
I highly recommend visiting the site and spending some time bumming around in the archive! I have tried numerous times to embed the video, but it just ain’t workin for me. So you will have to go to the site and do a search for sushi. I highly recommend the “Average Betty” postings.
