And finally, Make-It-Yourself Sushi is the latest trend. Some people will still include raw fish in their options, but traditions are gone and everything’s on the table. There’s barbecued pulled-pork sushi, steak fajita sushi, Italian meatball sushi and anything you can think of. Simpler sushi can include ham, cheese, bacon, peanut butter, jelly, salami and any of your favorite luncheon meats. Whatever flavors you like, you can make them into sushi, and kids love the interactive aspect of creating their own sushi.
With a simple beginner’s sushi making kit ranging from $7-$15 you can have a sushi mat to spread out the rice, place your toppings in a line through the center and roll it up.
With the submarine sushi kit, you get a tube or pipe that opens on a hinge into two halves. You load both halves with rice, leaving a hollow down the center. Then load in your fillings and close it up. There is a plunger on one end that you press, and out comes your sushi roll, just like Play-Doh. Voilà!
You could even have a sushi party where guests bring their favorite fillings; everyone gets to try something new. The number one rule is to enjoy the flavors you like and don’t worry about what everyone else likes.
Sushi, it’s not just for raw fish eaters anymore!
