This sounded interesting so I decided we needed to try it! I have made rolled sushi before and it was really good, but alot of work.....this just like regular sushi with LOTS less work. I did make one change though. I only used half the amount of soy sauce because 1/2 cup seemed like alot of liquid for 2 cups of cooked rice. It was plenty. I did use the suggested amount of wasabi though. I used jasmine rice also and it was really good! I topped with fresh avocado and pink salad shrimp. Delicious! Thanks for sharing! I will be making again.....very soon I'm sure!
I found this salad delightful. I love sushi and it tasted just like it...and it is much easier than all that rolling...even though the sushi rice is kind of a pain because of temperature changes. I also used real crab meat and added shrimp as well! I will definitely make it again!!! Thanks Tyler!
I will not rate because I changed the veggies in this recipe thinking I would use the items in a California roll. I used avocado, cucumber, sesame seeds, shrimp, and toasted seaweed. I used kitchen shears to cut into 1 inch rows then cut in smaller pieces. I will make a suggestion, probably making the sushi rice as per a different recipe would probably help cause it usually has sugar in the rice wine vinegar. My kids loved the changes I made, I didn't, something seemed a little off.
