My oh my! I haven't made sushi in a while but this is awesome! I omitted the red pepper and added avacodo. I also used the sherry (as optioned in ingredients). I also boiled my own shrimp with seasonings and chopped them. I will definitely make this for our next party! Presented nicely!

This is the most fantastic recipes for sushi, I have ever eaten. And the easy part is the layers, no rolling. Served it to my visiting son, who said it was good, then went downstairs and told his wife it was the best sushi he had ever eaten. She told me! So far everyone who has tried it at our house, calls to request it for their next visit. This is not a recipe to be afraid to make. Thank you so much for sharing!

It was fun to make and looked terrific; unfortunately no one ate it.
