Homemade Sushi Rolls
I've got a surprise for you guys!
What, you ask?! Our engagement pictures are done! And I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Our photographer Adam did such an amazing job! If you want to check them out, head on over to his site and let me know what you think!
Andy and I love going out for sushi. It's probably one of our go-to things for dinner when we're in one of those indecisive modes. It's always a winner. But it can get a little pricy sometimes, so every now and then, we'll make it at home!
2 cups cooked rice
1-2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
The great thing about sushi is that you can practically put anything you want it there! Just don't over pack!
The only real work you have to do is make the sushi rice. And that's just basically mixing cooled cooked rice with some seasoned rice vinegar (we don't really have a ratio, just add as much as you see fit!).
We made two different rolls here:
The first being shrimp, avocado, cucumber inside out roll with Sriracha dots on top.
And the second being a traditional roll of smoked salmon, cucumber, and cream cheese.
Both were equally delicious! I made a sushi post last year with a great how-to on how to roll sushi, so just check that out here!
Have you ever made your own sushi? What do you like to put in it?
