My second attempt (front two rows) were much better...
Making homemade Sushi is great fun, you feel so amazed by the result and it's completely put me off buying pre-packed products as they are not only expensive, they are also full of all sorts of fatty, high calorie nasties such as mayonnaise and non-Dolphin Friendly Tuna. Apparently, I read an article online about the levels of mercury pre-packed Sushi contains, and believe me, it didn't make for pleasant reading!

So, knowing exactly what's going in to my Sushi, as well as all of the fun making it really made a difference - and moreover it tasted absolutely amazing! In addition to the kit we bought some smoked salmon and used shredded spring onions and peppers to make the perfect rolls. In the kit you get 2 sets of chopsticks, 2 bags of sushi rice, sushi vinegar, sushi nori (seaweed sheet), soy sauce sachets, wasabi paste sachets and a bamboo rolling mat.

I sat down to ate my sushi with chopsticks and dipped it in to wasabi and soy dip (I didn't know wasabi just dissolved in soy to make a fire-cracking dip!) and I must admit, I was beat by just half the sushi we made. I also kept it fresh with a little lemon juice and took it to work for my lunch the following day too! From now on, I will be scouring the shelves of B&M for these kits and will only ever eat homemade sushi...
