Make-your-own sushi

We love DIY or MYO food –  hotpot, charcoal BBQ, pho, bibimbap… Anything that requires the remotest hint of DIY is a big hit.

I got this MYO sushi idea from my friend Mary. It not only tastes great, but it’s a easy, last-minute throw-together with fresh and tasty ingredients.

Start with chopping up some fresh vegetables, into thin strips. Things such as carrots, capsicum, lettuce, cucumber, or even celery work beautifully.

Don’t forget the spanish onions!

Then get some eggs…

…mix it up and fry them up in the pan. Don’t touch the egg mixture whilst it’s in the pan. We want a perfect circle for some nice and thin egg strips. There’s no need to flip it over, I always find that the top will cook without burning the bottom.

Here we go, these are the cold fillings. Don’t mind my thick egg strips, sometimes one just can’t be bothered.

You will then need these essential ingredients: sushi seaweed (can be bought from any good grocery stores), sushi rice (imagine sushi rice in the picture), some beef mince and of course, a beer. Cook the rice now (or, rather, before you chop the vegetables).

Next, we brown the mince in an appropriately-sized frypan. Heat a little olive oil in the pan. Don’t you just love the colour of olive oil against the shiny pan? Add some garlic powder, or real garlic if you like. Some sweet paprika and cumin powder. Season with salt. Viola! Very tasty beef mince.

Oh, don’t forget to slice up some smoked salmon as well. Your sushi will thank you for it.

Last but not least, bring on the mayo, wasabi and soy sauce. They go amazingly well with sushi. I’m in love with the cute little dish (with mayo in it) we got from Vietnam, complete with its own tiny ceramic spoon.

When you have everything ready, here is a step-by-step instruction on how to roll your own sushi.

Come on, go ahead, you know you want some!

If you have any left over ingredients, they are perfect for salads, sandwiches, fried noodles, fried rice, omelette, anything you can think of!
