Tamago Nigiri

Tamago nigiri may not be the fanciest sushi out there, but it can be found at most sushi places. It’s so easy to make, you could fry up some bacon and eat tamago nigiri for breakfast! (I bet we all know what I’m making for breakfast tomorrow!) Makes about 5-6 pieces. Ingredients 1 cup sumeshi

tamago

How to Make Usuyaki Tamago

Tamago is the Japanese name for a sweet egg omelet. This omelet can be used in maki and on nigiri sushi. The only problem is that the tamago is so good that once you try some, there might not be any left to make sushi with! This isn’t exactly a traditional recipe. Instead, this is

philadelphia roll

Philadelphia Roll

I first tried this roll at a sushi restaurant called Maki Maki, although it can probably be found at most sushi restaurants. Son took me there last year for my birthday, and we have been stopping by every time we are in the area ever since. We almost always get the Philadelphia Roll when we

crunchy shrimp roll

Crunchy Shrimp Roll

I love, love, LOVE this roll! This is probably my favorite type of sushi ever. I came up with this when I was making tempura shrimp for a different roll. I had some extra avocado from making California Rolls, and we had some leftover green onions from something I had made a few days before

new zealand roll

New Zealand Roll

The New Zealand Roll is similar to the California Roll. The only differences are that the roll is made with the sumeshi on the outside and covered with kiwifruit slices.

california roll
