Monday, June 17 –
Have you had sushi before? Yes? Ok, whew. Then you probably know that the fish is best when it might still wiggle. Other than that all you need is a little sushi rice, some seaweed, soy sauce, wasabi, and hunger.
This dinner was just BestestFianceEver, RubsWithLove, Sir VJ, and yours truly. Sir VJ and rubs with love brought several different kinds of fish, eel, sushi rice, pickled ginger, and some sushi-making skills. BestestFianceEver and I brought a huge slab of ahi tuna, edamame, avocado, gyoza and sauce, cucumber, and wasabi. Sir VJ actually did most of the work with the fish, slicing, rolling, and putting it altogether on platters. The rest of us helped when we could and got out of the way when we couldn’t.
There was SO MUCH FOOD. And it was so good, I can’t even begin to tell you. Thanks, you two, for making Japan so wonderful and memorable!
