My shopping list included the following.
Soft shell crab.
Tuna 1st grade.
I hope I did not miss anything but now you can see why I spend $150.00, I must say though that I had lots of stuff left over, the soft shell crab came in a box of 12 and I only used 4, I still have 1/2 of the shrimp, and 1/2 of the tuna in the freezer, plus the sushi that I did make fed 6 adults and 9 kids. So I guess it wasn't to bad after all.
Some of the sushi I made were variations of California rolls, shrimp tempura rolls, Spider roll and other that I just stuffed with ingredients. Over all it was lots of fun and I learned how to make sushi, with the left over crab imitation and cucumbers my family enjoyed 2 more meals of sushi after that, and I still have stuff in my freezer and refer that I can make more sushi. My conclusion is that it's an easy fun process and the sushi cost much less when you make it at home. I hope in the next few post I can write more about how I make it and give some insights on how to make great sushi.
