Hubby likes sushi a LOT.

Made him this yesterday (enough for a dinner feast and lunch):

Smoked eel with rice
Thinly sliced salmon with sushi rice mixed with rice vinegar.
California Rolls:
Salmon, avocado,cucumber,matchstick carrots rolled in rice and nori.
Surimi, cucumber, matchstick carrots rolled in rice and nori.
Steamed shrimp, matchstick carrots, cucumber, wasabi mayo, rice and nori.

2.5 cups water brought to a boil, add 1 cup of sushi quality rice and 1 tbls butter, pinch of salt, simmer with lid on for 15-25 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff then chill rice.

1 lb smoked eel, hard membrane removed
1 lb sushi grade salmon sliced very thinly across the grain
12 steamed shrimp, veins and tail removed
4 pieces of surimi trimmed to uniform size

3 pieces nori 5x5 in size.
Place rice on nori up and until 1 inch at the end.
place lengthwise slices of cucumber and veggies with choice of fish.
Spread wasabi mayo if using. (1 tablespoon mayo with 1-2 pea size of wasabi)
Roll with bamboo mat seal end with a bit of water.
slice with a serrated knife. Arrange on plates.

Make 1 1/2 inch football size shapes of the rice. Use some water on your hands if they get a bit sticky. PLace a very small amount of wasabi on each football and place eel or salmon on each piece molding it to the rice.

Serve immediately with soya sauce, additional paste wasabi. thin ginger slices pickled and also some red paste miso soup with sliced chives and mushroom.

Is there anything this girl can't do. That looks awesome Danielle. Right down to the proper dishes and everything. WOW. It's only 10 AM and I'm at work and now I have to eat my lunch.
If it can't be smoked it ain't worth eating.
