I love sushi. I mean LOVE it. My wife loves sushi as well. We both love it so much - we are going to *TRY* to make it tonight.

I think we will start out simple this first time. A butt-load of Tuna rolls.

I got the basic supplies down or am about to go purchase them. But I have a couple burning questions:

1) Bought 2 x frozen sushimi grade tuna ... what is the best way to thaw it out without compromising the fish flavor / texture etc. Oh ya, its 6:00 PM and I'd like to eat it by 9:00 PM.

2) Do you need to refridgerate the rice after making it? I know I need sushi rice and ricewine vinegar.

You might try checking out one of those online recipe sites or and looking up the various recipes for tuna rolls. Alas I know nothing of this so-called Sushi technology, or I'd help. Even if you do suck at Paradise Paintball.


I kid, I kid...

...into the light of a dark black night.

Quality of fish is generally the most significant issue that can't be achieved at home. Harder to judge fish than any slab of beef certainly.

You insult my paintball skillz in a sushi thread?

Negative rep points for you!

So, it's past 9 PM… how'd it go?

Man, I want some sushi now. Too bad the local sushi restaurants aren't open 24/7 like the McDonalds are!

I give the night a 7.79879 / 10.

The most appropriate comment was that the quality is totally dependent on the tuna. One steak was perfect and fresh - no smell.. One was a tad fishy - had this filet been more fresh (no smell) I would have given the night a 9.5/10.

I made Spicy tuna rolls (mayo, cayenne and sesame oil for the sauce). Got the sushi rice, rice wine vinegar (for combination with the rice), sushi paper, sesame oil, and tuna from a local supermarket.

I made WAY too much. see below. We probably ate a roll or 2 making the stuff too. Didn't come close to finishing it all.

it was a lot of work but it was fun too. I will definitely do it again.

Oh ya, I just stuck the steaks (sashimi grade, vacuumed packed, in plastic) in a bowl of water for an hour.

And just for fun ... me and my son from a couple weeks ago

Looks delicious, I like tuna rolls and you certainly gave me a sushi craving just like Brad.

How was rolling them?

I made California rolls a couple of times. Doing it yourself makes the cost of eating at a nice sushi restaurant seem very reasonable in terms of value for the money. It looks so simple, but it's a real pain to do it yourself, unlike most other foods you can purchase ready-made.

Anybody who ever wants the best sushi in the world, go to Zushi Puzzle in San Francisco and sit at the bar. The chef's name is Roger, and he makes the best sushi ever. But it's not cheap.
