stoplight-roll

Here’s a post to hold everyone over until I’m done with finals (which are going well – 4 down, 1 to go!) I’ll be back to normal on Friday, after my finals and everything is done!

This roll is called a stoplight roll because wouldn’t you know it… it looks like a stoplight! The reddish color of the imitation crab, the yellow of the tamago, and the green of the avocado stack up nicely to look like a stoplight (not to mention having an ever so delicious taste!)

Speaking of which, everyone please be very careful driving now that (at least here) the wet winter season has started! Actually, be careful driving all the time… believe me, car accidents are no fun! I most certainly wouldn’t want to hear of anything bad happening to any of my dear readers!

I found this roll on the Sushi Chart website.

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 pieces.

Ingredients
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice and tamago.
  2. Slice the tamago into thin strips, about 1/2 inch wide.
  3. Cut avocado into thin sticks, about 1/2 cm wide.
  4. Roll the sushi, using avocado, tamago, and imitation crab as your fillings. Place the avocado on the bottom, then the tamago, then the imitation crab on the top (like a traffic light).
  5. Serve with shoyu, wasabi, and ginger if desired. Enjoy!

    My dad and I are just about to make some of this Stoplight Roll. It looks delicious! We’ll find out as soon as we’re done making it….

  4. Allison says:

    Ali – Wonderful! Let me know how it turned out! I hope you like it as much as I did!

  5. Ali says:

    Grrrr, my dad bought the wrong ingredients! -_- Sadly, I didn’t get to make any. Bummer. Don’t worry, I will soon!

  6. Allison says:

    Awwwww bummer! I’m sorry to hear that! Hopefully next time it will work out better!

    I had my local, favorite sushi joint (Tanaka on 51st b/w 2nd & 3rd in NYC) make this roll for me this past weekend. It was fun ordering a special roll not on their regular menu and I think they enjoyed having someone order something creative (so thanks to Sushi Day for that.)

    Now, the roll was decent, but not wonderful. I love crab (I’m from Baltimore) and I LOVE tamago (I usually order a piece or two for desert), but the combination of the two was just a bit odd for me. It was a weird mix of sweet (tamago) and fishy (crab).

    This is just my personal opinion and I won’t likely re-order this roll, but I look forward to more inventive rolls to order in the future. Keep up the great work Sushi Day!!!

    That’s really cool! If I’m ever in NYC I’ll definitely have to stop by that sushi restaurant!
    I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t like this roll so much, but it’s nice to hear you did try it! There are many more sushi creations on the way, so hopefully you’ll like some of the other ones better! :)

    Really nice roll! Creative! Did you come up with it? Never heard of it. I’m trying this next chance I get.

  10. Allison says:

    No, I didn’t come up with it (although I wish I did!) According to the Sushi Chart website that I mentioned above, all of the rolls that are mentioned on that site are common sushi rolls. I have never heard of some of them though, so who knows!
