I love sushi, but it always seemed like something that wouldn’t be worth the trouble to make at home. I’ve seen the sushi rolling mats (in fact my little brother took one to Boy Scout camp to make sushi there!), but I’m not really a fan of making food that requires rolling. I feel like I always end up making a huge mess and getting frustrated!
So I was excited when I was offered a chance to review this sushi mold. It promised to let me make delicious sushi rolls in different shapes without actually having to roll anything. Sold!
Once it arrived Seth and I spent a Sunday afternoon making and eating sushi. Our first roll turned out a little funny but we quickly got the hang of it and our rolls started looking almost professional! They were a little looser than rolled sushi, but still held their shape and were able to be picked up with chopsticks.
The process was super easy. In the mold, layer a nori sheet, then rice, then your fillings, and some more rice. Then fold the nori over the top and press down on the roll with the top half of the mold. Abracadabra, sushi!
Since I don’t trust myself with being able to hygienically handle raw fish, we used cooked shrimp in our sushi. Then we added a few vegetables we had in the fridge. It was extremely simple, but very tasty. I’ve already started brainstorming ideas of other types of sushi to make at home!
