These were very good, however I think I prefer traditional sushi. I missed the seaweed, and found rolling the traditional sushi easier than making these poppers. The flavor was very good though, and it was a nice change.
I can't tell you how happy I was to find this recipe! I was even happier after I made & sampled them. I kept it really simple the first time, using only cucumber & cream cheese as my filling. I just used rice and vinegar for the rice portion (no sesame seeds to be found, but I really wanted to try these). I first formed them exactly as directed, but they didn't look very pretty & they kind of fell apart. Sooo, I tried using my small Pampered Chef scooper (the one I use for cookie dough). I scooped up some rice and then pressed it into the scoop firmly to pack it tight. Next, I put my finger into the center to make a hole for the filling. I cut all of the cucumbers into small pieces before I started and topped with a small portion of cream cheese so they were ready to go when needed. Then I put the cucumber in & filled in the top with a little more rice mixture & popped them out onto a plate. Really simple, quick & absolutely delicious. I can't wait to try them again with some different fillings & sesame seeds. A wonderful answer to my sushi cravings at a fraction of the cost of going to a restaurant or buying them in the grocery store! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!!
I'm so, so happy that I have this recipe!! This was easy to assemble. I used smoked salmon, cream cheese, cucumber and avacado. These are so good!! Thanks for sharing! I'm making again tonight!!
What a great way to enjoy sushi! I made mine stuffed with cucumber and albacore.
Although I have since learned how to make "real" sushi at home, this was a great way to make it before then! An easy way to get your sushi fix! Thanks, Uncle Bill!
I made this with sweet tuna (that come in those flavored packets) and also with small shrimp. It turned out pretty good and they went fast at a function I was at. Thanks!
Hi Bill, I love Sushi and these look nice and easy and so, so, tasty!!! I know they will be great!!!!! Thanks for posting, Bill!! Love, Becky
These turned out great....I made these for our euchre club and everyone raved about them...easy to make once you get the hang of it...I used a melon baller to scoop the rice and form it...I put in the middle cucumber and some crab (the fake stuff). It was not hard to make....
These were so much fun. DH & I love sushi and we love to cook. We had almost as much fun putting these together as we did eating them. The fact that they are so tasty to boot was just an added plus. I would suggest these to anyone who wants something to serve something special.
Excellent. I've never rolled sushi, so these were a great way to have my craving. I used cream cheese, avacado and cucumber as the filling. Thanks for this recipe, I've made it twice in two weeks now.
