OMG YUM! We had a somewhat successful, and somewhat NOT successful sushi-making experience last night. About half of our maki rolls fell apart when we tried to slice them, so we tossed them in a bowl and called it Sushi Salad.
It's a bit of stretch to say it's a Tower Garden recipe, since the only items we used from the tower are the cucumbers and a few baby greens, but I have to share it because it was the perfect lunch today! Crisp and light, maybe a little heavy on the rice. But hey, it's Friday. Let's live a little.
That was supposed to be sarcastic, BTW.
Steamed Shrimp and Salmon (Raw salmon would have been soooo much better, but we used frozen Salmon caught on our Alaska trip last summer, so since it isn't "sushi-grade" it's not ok to eat it raw.)
Sticky Rice - we used these instructions.
Nori Sheets - tear or slice them into small squares or strips
Matchstick Veggies - carrots, cukes, red peppers
Wakami Salad - prepared seaweed concoction from the Asian market
Pickled Ginger from a jar
Dressing - olive oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, wasabi powder
Really? Do you actually need instructions? Throw it all into a bowl and eat it!!
And comment below to let me know how yours turned out.
