I had the opportunity, not too long ago, to take over some friends’ kitchen and make a giant pile of salmon and veggie sushi. I’ve recently discovered this awesome fresh fish market in the Highlands area of Denver, and though it cost rather more than I was willing to spend, $22/lb for really freaking good salmon is worth it when you consider how much good salmon would cost at a sushi bar.
Anyhow, this post will be light on words and heavy on photos, since I got some good ones of the delicious sushi that was made. There are few things I like more than making sushi for people that love sushi!
Here’s a closeup on some rolls topped with avocado plus fish roe, along with some salmon and avocado rolls:
I’m not too hot at slicing fish for nigiri, but boy are they tasty:
Here’s a nice closeup of someone’s plate of sushi, about to be eaten:
One of my hosts made some delicious miso soup to go along with the sushi feast:
I’m getting better at making tamago (egg omelet) but still struggle with it not holding together as strongly as I’d like:
Another shot of the salmon sushi plate:
Fancy outdoor sushi party!
Super closeup of the tamago rolls plus nigiri:
Mondo rolls are delicious!
Am hoping to have another sushi party with friends soon, hopefully with tuna!
