Since I was a child, I luvv sushi very much. If other kids saved their money to buy toys, I save my money to buy heaps of sushi near my house. A native woman married a Japanese sushi chef and they decided to open a small sushi stall in front, adjacent to their house. I will come with my piggy bank, gave a bright smile and point at all the sushi I want. I will then walk out happily with 3 boxes of sushi so in total of 36 sushi that I will eat all by my self on the way home. What makes a sushi taste good is the fresh sweet meat of raw fish with a good blend of sushi rice. Since I live in Japan, I have never eaten sushi that will make me want to come back again and again. So, I tried to find recipes and made it at home. I adjusted a lot and voila, here is the recipe. My husband friends went backpacking around Japan and crashed at our home. So, I decided to prepare all assorted stuff to make sushi and they enjoyed a lot making it. We took it as our lunch bento. My good old friend came to visit and I invited them for dinner. They went crazy about my sushi and encourage me to open a restaurant. Yeah, great Idea..hi..hi..Anyway, give it a try, it will make everyone happy
