DIY Sushi Date Night

Sushi is tasty

Dates are fun

Why not make your own sushi for a tasty fun date night

I am by no means an expert on Sushi Making. We have done it a few times and honestly, the  best way to learn to make sushi is to practice! You might want to watch a few videos (Hi YouTube), go out to eat & watch the expert make your rolls, or look up some tutorials.

The basics that you need to know are place your nori sheet on a bamboo mat. Place about 1/2 cup of your rice on the nori and pat it into the bottom 3/4 of the nori. Put your desired fillings carefully on the 1/3 of the nori closest to you. Carefully roll the sushi and then cut into 6 – 8 pieces. That is the long & the short of it.

Don’t expect the first (few) rolls to look good, but they will sure be tasty!
