On Tuesday, Brendan and I made our first very own sushi rolls (norimaki) for lunch - with tuna and avocado. Being a fan of everything Japanese, I've been a fan of sushi and sashimi for a long time. Brendan is an enthusiastic convert.
One of our favourite restaurants in New York is Minado, an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet. There are a couple of places in Dublin (Aya, YoThai (could not find a link for this one), Yamamori Noodles) where you can get sushi and sashimi, but the quality and quantity is nothing like Minado.
Anyway, we decided to make our own, and it was a big success - we got the seaweed sheets, the sushi rice, the little mat to roll the sushi, tuna, avocado, wasabi, light soy sauce. The only thing we were missing was the pickled ginger. The perfect lunch!
