I don’t know about you but I need a teeny tiny break from all of the festive blogposts so here’s one about making your own sushi at home! But fret not, the end of year round up will rear it’s head tomorrow, of course! (You lucky lot, you!) So, making sushi was a lot easier than I thought! My sister bought my a sushi making kit years and years ago but I always found the idea of it quite daunting, but my mum advised me that if the rice is cooked right, then the rest is fairly simple… 
Japanese food is my favourite, I love it all (apart from udon, I’m not so keen on that) but I enjoy everything else! Absolutely everything, I think it’s delicious! When Mum said she was making sushi last night, I made sure I saved my belly for it! There was sashimi (raw fish), nigiri (raw fish on top of rice), maki (sushi rolls) and temaki (handrolls) and it was all sooo good! We filled it with salmon, avocado, crab stick and cucumber, with a side of wasabi and soy sauce! We didn’t fancy green tea (well, I didn’t, anyway!) so I poured the family a glass of midori and lemonade each, followed by a cheeky Snowball, and scoffed the food whilst watching Frozen!
Are you a fan of Japanese food? Have you ever tried making sushi yourself?

    I have a craving for sushi now! I don't think I'd be brave enough to make sushi myself though.

    Wow, these turned out great! The only sushi I eat is California rolls because I'm not really a seafood type of gal 🙂

    I love sushi, my boyfriend's mum makes it quite often but I'd never be able to do it myself!

    Mmm this looks so delicious! I absolutely love Japanese food too! Every time I make sushi they all turn out to be different sizes and a mess but yours look uniformed and super neat!

    Mexican food is a favourite of mine but I do love chinese and thai food, my favourite restaurant for that is called tampopo. The sushi turned out great, looks really good x

    I've never actually tried sushi in my life, that is definitely on the agenda for 2015

    Wow! That looks so good! I love sushi, but the only attempt I make at making sushi is Spam Wasabi xD Even then, it looks more like a giant burrito! Hahaha! I'm definitely putting 'learn how to make sushi' as one of my NYE goals! Then I don't have to pay a lot for sushi when I go out!

    I love homemade sushi, mine are no where near as neat and perfectly rolled as your Mum's, but they taste so good <3 xo
