My good friend Michelle invited some of us ladies over last night to make sushi. Although we are all avid sushi eaters, I was hesitant and intimidated by the hassle at first but caved eventually.
She bought all the technical necessities in Chinatown, our friend Irina bought vegetables and I bought the fish. Teamwork! We had no idea what we were doing but thank God for YouTube’s how-to videos.
The ingredients we prepared were fresh salmon, smoked eel, shrimp, crab, avocado, cucumbers and mango, and then each of us improvised with the combinations. The sushi rolls turned out pretty good for a first time, except I got kind of carried away with the salt in the rice.
