    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.

    I love sushi and thought the layers idea was worth trying. I used mirin rather than sherry and didn't use the capers. Considering other reviews re the difficulty of cutting decided to put an extra layer of nori. I used a good serrated edged knife and didn't find it any more difficult to cut than sushi rolls. I must admit the rice wasn't as good as I have tried previously and feel maybe next time I will use a little more rice vinegar. Love the idea of the stacks.
