We wanted to get some sushi rolling practice in before teaching a Sushi & Sake class at work. Here’s the plate we came up with: Spicy Salmon, Spicy Tuna and our very own Blowout Roll!
Napa is known around the world for its exquisite wine and food. While visiting my mom and sister this week, we dined at three recommended restaurants, enjoying the farm-to-table cuisine, and were inspired to create our own fine dining experience at home, Napa-style.
I hadn’t heard of a sushi burrito until a few months ago. It’s like a maki roll on steroids. You can pack them with fish, shrimp, vegetables, whatever you can fit inside. Just not too much or you might not be able to close it.
We were introduced to these bite-sized hors d’oeuvres at our friends’ wedding. After trying one, we immediately stationed ourselves by the door of the kitchen to intercept the waitress as she came back out with reloaded platters. They were just too good to warrant any self-control.
Ponzu has a very unique flavor profile. Salty at first with a vinegary, citrus finish. We’ve added some cayenne and pepper flakes to ours, which tastes great with the tuna if you don’t have wasabi.
