I love sushi.
When My wife and I were dating, on one of our first dates, maybe even our first, I had her try sushi for the first time, and she absolutely craved it from then on. We don’t do sushi near as much as we used to just because of the cost of getting good sushi, plus with kids you don’t get to go out to good sushi places often either.
When we were a young married couple, we tried to make sushi. The bad part is that we tried to make it on a Friday night, after work, with no experience. We had all of the tools, which we had received as a wedding gift, but none of the knowledge. We didn’t realize that this would be such a long process. By the end of the night, we were both starving, angry, and never wanted to try that again, at least not on an empty stomach after work.
While not near as pretty, this Breakfast Sushi recipe is really fantastic! I got a pouch of salmon along with 5 eggs and an avocado, rolled it up in a few pieces of seaweed, put some green onion on top, and dipped it in some tamari, and absolutely loved it. This will definitely be making a reappearance in my breakfast rotation. It took a few more minutes than just doing scrambled eggs, but only because this was the first time, and I was disorganized. It really was a very quick breakfast once everything was out that I needed. I will say that I need to sharpen my knife because I had to poke a hole in the seaweed so that it wouldn’t just crush the spot I was trying to slice through.
The next time I will probably put the green onion on the inside because it kept falling off of the top, and if you like green onion, you know that you want some of that in every bite.
