A week ago we were visiting Son’s parents, and his mother sent a couple of mangoes back with us. Now I have had mango pudding and mango ice cream before, but I don’t think I have ever had an actual raw mango! Yum! They were some really good mangoes, so we decided to make some sushi with it. Recently I keep hearing about mango salsa, and it sounds really good… so I figure why not make a sushi version?

Several people have told us that we should try making sushi using apples and shrimp, so finally we have! I know everyone always says to use Fuji apples for their sweetness… but I didn’t have any so I just made do with what I had! The cheese definitely helped, as it was a little bland without the saltiness and spice of the cheese.

This is my interpretation of the “beef” that is used in the vegetarian pad see ew (I love pad see ew! :D ). Ours doesn’t taste exactly like beef, but it’s still really good! We overcooked the broccoli just a tad bit (which is why it is all black and looks dead) but it still tasted fantastic! This is a great way to make sushi for your vegetarian friends or to get your kids to eat a vegetarian dish! Yum!

tuna-temaki

A few weeks ago, Yvo posted a recipe for tuna salad on her blog, The Feisty Foodie. Since I am almost as faithful a reader of her blog as she is of mine (her reviews of New York restaurants always make me want to pack my bags and catch a flight out to New York), I read her post and by the end really wanted some tuna salad. I finally got around to making some (I didn’t have any eggs in the fridge, so I couldn’t make any for a while), and it is definitely kick er… butt! Yummmm… this recipe is definitely a keeper!

Temaki is a super easy type of sushi to make. It is similar to maki sushi and tastes pretty much the same, but is so much easier to make! This would probably be great for sushi parties – you don’t need a bamboo rolling mat to make it, and if you have all your ingredients and the nori cut up before you start, you don’t even need a knife!

Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is having a fun Fourth of July celebration! Well, my American readers anyways. Sorry everyone else. :( Now don’t get mad at me, because I know this isn’t really sushi, or even that close, but I’m going to post it anyways! Because I can. :D
