It all started with an invitation, one that a Sushi lover can’t decline… How does a Sushi class sound? Oh well, it sounds fantastic thank you, and so the book mark was made on Monday the 18th of June to be at the Suzuki Jordan Showroom at 7:30 p.m to celebrate the art of Japanese cuisine and Japanese cars.
By the time Jo Tweeps including were gathering at the Suzuki Show Room in Mecca Street, we were all hyped up with the one of a kind activity that we were about to embrace. To make this a very short and straight to the point story.
To make Sushi Rolls you need:
- Bamboo Mat
- Nori (dried seaweed)
- Rice (Short grain, add vinegar)
Now let’s start rolling:
- Set the rice on the end of the nori sheet closest to you
- Use your fingers to spread the rice over the whole surface
- If you’re doing Sushi Rice on the outside of the roll, you do the whole surface, if you do the rice in side of the roll, you leave half an inch without rice at the end
- A general rule of thumb when it comes to sushi is, more rice means less filling and less rice means more filling. So focus on minimal rice, and enjoy the filling of your choice. I personally prefer Salmon, Crab and Tuna.
- Now that you have added your favorite ingredients (In the Middle of-course), lets start rolling this roll
- Lifting the edge of the mat closest to you, begin rolling the mat away from you, pressing it lightly to keep it firm.
- To cut rolls, make sure you use a sharp knife, pointing it away from you and keeping it damp between roll cuts for optimum results without leaving a mess.
- Begin by slicing the roll exactly in half. Then, set the two halves side-by-side to slice into individual pieces
Useful Tip: Always cover bamboo matt in plastic wrap. This prevents rice from sticking and getting into the crevices of the mat.
Check out this video by Zaytouneh Video Recipes, I watched it the first time I made sushi, and I love it to pieces, short, straight to the point and self explanatory.
That’s it for the Japanese cuisine. As for Japanese Cars, I fell head over heals in love with the Suzuki Kizashi. A mid-size sports sedan that offers premium styling, best in class performance. Words cannot exactly describe how I feel about it, usually boys are good at describing cars, but my advice is, head off to their showroom and check it out for your self, and for my husband, I know you are reading this, hint …hint my birthday is in 6 months
