i LOVE sushi!!!

here's a picture of me and my wife eating fugu [blowfish] in Japan


it's actually cheaper for us to make sushi at home than it is to get it at a restaurant

SWMBO and I love sushi....we can make it ourselves, but there is this killer place that's 10 mins walking, and then we can have all of the saki we want, and don't have to drive.

This thread is making me hungry, and we just had Thai a few hours ago

Not hard to do at all. I do rolls and sushi at least once a week.

I am a experienced cook and love the prep and love all the prep that goes into everything. I take ALOT of extra time to make each roll and design each cut. Yes I am actually out of my damn mind, And I love every minute of it.

I cooked for my roommates a few months ago and took the extra time to make tomato roses, so, yes, HOURS of prep is not uncommon for me to get something to the point of where I like it.

Gonna have to put that on the to-do list next time we meet up.
Yeah, for sure! Full Moon just up the street from me at Grandview Plaza is fantastic, and it's BYOB.

We typically make sushi once a week (on Saturday). You REALLY get the hang of it. The first few times, it was painstaking (especially the rolling) but now all together it may take and hour and a half for 2 people with: 10 minutes of getting the rice ready, 20 minutes being the rice cooking (and cutting all the veggies), 50 minutes of assembling and rolling the sushi and another 10 minutes of cutting the sushi.

Another trick for you: We use smoked salmon for our sushis, that way we don't have to go get fresh fish or seafood on the same day.

For the recipe here is what I use: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/party-starters/sushi-rolls-recipe/index.html

For three people (I'm a big eater, the others not so much) we usually make between 3.5 and 4 cups of sushi rice. We sort of know now how hungry we are and can judge how much we need. Just make a bit more and you'll have a some leftover rice, not a big loss.

In the ingredients, you may also want to add sesame seeds.

Rolling is the hardest part, but you'll get the hand of it. A trick: on your first fold, you have to go get all your filling.

+1. BBQ requires hours of prep and it's well worth it. How about a brisket you have to start the night before? Like homebrew, there's just certain things that require some time but are well worth it in the end.

How do you say "growler" in Japanese?
