Eel Sushi with Sammie!

I always say I love sushi, but I only really like two kinds - California and Eel. I know that doesn't make me a true sushi-lover because I tend to avoid the raw sushi (Eel is the furthest I'll go!), but nonetheless I would choose sushi over many foods. So today, I am going to be making sushi at home again! If you haven't seen my previous sushi post - click here! But this time, I am using legit ingredients. My family and I took a trip to the Hong Kong market here in Louisiana, and I got the ingredients to make Eel Sushi.

As a reference, I'll add the prices to give you a look of how much you'll have to spend to make it yourself.


▸ Broiled Eel - $11.99/lb - mine was $10.55
▸ Seasoned Caplin Roe or Masago (or those orange fish eggs) - $5.49
▸ Seaweed Wrappers - $1.99
▸ Rice - I use Jasmine Rice because it's sticky - Price varies because we buy the BIG bag of rice
▸ Rice Vinegar - $3.79
▸ Imitation Crab Sticks - $1.99

Add a thin layer of rice (mixed with a tablespoon or two of rice vinegar), add your crab and slices of eel meat (avoid getting the skin), and add your fish eggs then roll it up!

Note: Fish eggs are salty, so add according to your taste.

Use a very sharp knife to cut your sushi roll to avoid the contents from spilling out and getting messy.  And voila!

I hope you enjoy your homemade sushi! I know my whole family loved it! It's very simple and delicious! 

Good luck!
