We Always Love Our Sushi Nights

Who doesn't love sushi? My family in The Philippines and my in-laws in The Netherlands were all fond of sushis. I'm so happy about that! Why? I love making them. Once or twice a month, we have sushi nights.

It is now easier to get ingredients than before. That is where we live back home and even here in Europe. Well guess what? There are more available stuffs for sushi here than in our place in PH. Here in NL, I can easily buy smoked salmon (easy to cut and readily available in the supermarket), pickled ginger (we need to make one ourselves though it is not that difficult), and even miso soup (which I never found in our local grocery store).

Yes, it amazed me how things are so available at hand here. I really appreciate the small packages of ingredients if someone just feels like making some. Most of the people living in one roof vary from one to four. Just like this pack of nori sheet that contains five pieces. For a small family, it is better to have a choice of this than that of ten. With our situation of having four people at home, this pack is just perfect. We cannot eat more than five rolls of sushi. They even have a sushi kit that contains everything you need, from the sushi rice to the bamboo mat. (This is an organic review, not sponsored.)

I also love including some egg omelet rolls on our sushi nights. They're very easy to make. I just whisk some eggs, season with salt and pepper, and fry just like what they do in Japan or Korean (fry, roll, repeat). Sometimes I add bell peppers, tomato, onion, and other vegetables. It is called Gyeran Mari in Korean.

Here are my base ingredients:
For the Sushi Rice:
Japanese / short grain rice
White vinegar
pinch of salt

Cook rice. Place rice in a mixing bowl to cool. While still warm, add vinegar, sugar and salt.

Basic sushi filling:
Nori sheet
smoked salmon/sushi-grade salmon
Surimi / Imitation crab stick
Spam / Canned meatloaf

Sushi Dip:
Light soy sauce
Pickled Ginger (optional)

And here's my plate of the sushi I made and picked. I'm now going to enjoy eating!
