Monday Munchies: Sushi

I love sushi. Either as a light lunch or a healthy snack it's great. We recently stoked up on sushi stuff and if you make your own you can customise it to have whatever ingredients you like best so it's not all raw fish. Also if you have kids they will love coming up with their own recipes and then making it themselves.

We decided to make 3 different kinds Red Pepper Maki, King Prawn Nigiri and King Prawn Uramaki. To make these you will need the following ingredients:

Sushi Rice
Nori (seaweed sheets)
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Red Pepper King Prawns

The rice will take the most prep but it is relatively easy if you follow the instructions on the packet.

Red Pepper Maki

Maki is the most popular type of sushi with the nori on the outside of the rice and, in our case, the red pepper in the middle. Start by putting the nori on the bamboo rolling mat and then spread some sushi rice over the nori and then add some sliced red pepper at one end. Once done it's time to roll up the sushi.

King Prawn Nigiri

Nigiri is really easy to make you just mould the rice into shape (you can also buy a mould to make the shape you will see in restaurants). Once it's moulded you just need to put whatever ingredient you want on top, in our case a King Prawn.

King Prawn Uramaki

Uramaki is like an inside out Maki. You start my spreading the rice on the bamboo sushi rolling mat then add the ingredients. Once its been rolled you can decorate it by rolling it in some toasted sesame seeds.

Once done you can serve your sushi with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi. Have you ever made your own sushi? What do you like in yours?

Well, that's all for now.




  1. You guys did a great job! We love sushi too but I thought it would be too much of a faff to make. I could eat sushi all day! I bet the kids loved it too.

  2. What a fab activity to do with the kids! My lot are a bit funny about fish, so we'll have to try it with some veggie fillings. You've inspired me to give it a whirl...

  3. That looks great and will def be trying it!

  4. thanks everyone. it was a bit messy but so much fun and the kids loved it
