Pregnancy safe sushi.

01 Aug



Tonight I decided to surprise my wife with one of her favorite meals; sushi.  This would normally be a simple task but we are now 7 months pregnant so almost every normal ingredient was out.  This simply posed an excuse for me to get creative.

From left to right we had: chicken terryaki with asparagus, avacado fries with orange bell pepper, ants on a log, caprese salad, and on the bottom is prawn with chives.

I love making and eating sushi. It’s one of the few meals where the focus is on the freshness and preparation of the ingredients. Each individual ingredient has it’s own flavor which is complimented, never covered up or only used to enhance the main ingredient.

Getting the rice correct is so important to making good sushi. I was only halfway successful this evening. My rice was seasoned perfectly but was just a little undercooked. Regardless, I’ll chalk this one up as an overall success!
