Friday afternoon’s activity was the art of Sushi Making.
There was some discussion in the beginning about the best method to cook the rice. We decided to use the rice cookers and hope for the best. They have proven to be unreliable in the past, but lucky for us, this time, they worked perfectly!! After the sushi rice was cooked, we added rice vinegar, caster sugar and salt to make the perfect sticky consistency for sushi rolls.
While the rice was cooking, we prepared the vegetables, salmon and tuna. We sliced carrots, capsicum, cucumber and avocado into long strips. We also added mayonnaise to the tuna for flavour.
Then it was time to roll..
We used cling film on our bamboo mats to prevent the yaki nori (seaweed) from sticking.
We placed some rice on the bottom 1/4 of the yaki nori and then added our choice of fillings on top. We then simply rolled the mats to create our masterpieces!
We had pickled ginger, soy sauce, wasabi and mayonnaise to compliment our sushi.
Everyone enjoyed their fresh sushi. Easy to make + delicious! Whats not to love? <3
