The November 2009 Daring Cooks challenge was brought to you by Audax of Audax Artifex and Rose of The Bite Me Kitchen. They chose sushi as the challenge.
Yay, sushi! While I'm not exactly a sushi connoisseur (I'm not a raw fish fan - it's a textural thing) I have made it a number of times at home. This meant I already had the rice, mats, vinegar etc and was ready to get started.
Our challenge this month had 4 elements - first the sushi rice itself, which we then made into 3 different end products. I followed the recipe to the letter and have to say my rice turned out better than it ever has before.
First up - Dragon Roll ...
Yes, I am aware my dragon looks like it was made by a 3 year old. Let's pretend it was!
Next, Spiral Sushi Roll ...
I think I rolled these the wrong way because they look like the regular sushi rolls I buy all the time. Very tasty though, filled with terriyaki chicken, avocado, cucumber, carrot, omelette and sesame seeds.
And last, bite sized Ngiri ...
I made two varieties of these, one with smoked salmon and the other with omelette and nori. Yum!
I won't post the recipes here as they are really long, but you can find a printable PDF version here.
Thanks for a wonderful challenge Audax and Rose!
