Yesterday was Maki Monday here at home, an extension of our Sushi Sunday. An extension was necessary because one, we are just plain crazy about sushi and two, I wasn’t quite satisfied with how I rolled our Sunday sushi. I needed to redeem myself. And redemption I got, if I may say so myself. ;)
These rolls may look the same as the ones I’ve posted in previous entries. But believe you me when I say that there are differences. For the first time, I used sushi rice and not our everyday jasmine rice. Another first is the use of masago (seasoned capelin roe). Last but not the least, I believe it’s also the first time I made the combinations you will see shortly.
Combo #1: Crab and Mango
My little girl loved this combination so much she was able to eat close to 10 pieces on Sushi Sunday! She requested I make some again for Maki Monday. ;)
Combo #2: Crab, Mango and Masago
The masago was an impulse buy during a recent stop at the Japanese store. I would have wanted some of the bigger masago as well but I couldn’t find any at the store. Perhaps they just ran out. Hopefully, I’ll get my hands on them next time.
My daughter loved the masago and how it kinda pops in the mouth when bitten. Hee hee. :)
Combo #3: Tuna, Crab, Cream Cheese and Masago
This turned out to be hubby’s favorite combo, and mine, too! I’ve always loved tuna and cream cheese. The addition of crab and masago made this combination even more lovable. :D
We can have sushi everyday. If these could help build muscles fast, we could be mistaken for body builders by now! Hee hee.
There’s practically no limit to the number of maki combinations one can come up with. That said, this will definitely not be my last maki entry. ;)
Keep on rollin’!
