Kanpai!

Kanpai!

I had a block of sashimi tuna in the freezer from my last sushi shopping trip; it was a bigger block, and I had also picked up a package of fresh salmon sashimi, so I stuffed the tuna in the freezer for another time.  I was glad I did, because that made impromptu sushi night a possibility!

To start, miso soup with tofu and wakame, and edamame with sea salt. I love edamame.

I also had a salad, of course, because we all know I can't live without salad. ; )   Next up, a sushi platter of all my favorites. In the front row, tuna nigiri; in the middle, spicy tuna nigiri with avocado, chili oil, sriracha, and green onions. In the back row, three kinds of hosomaki; cucumber, avocado, and spicy tuna.  And in the corner, inarizushi, little fried tofu pouches stuffed with sushi rice, mixed with diced carrot and green onion, and topped with both toasted and black sesame seeds.

And, because sushi night isn't sushi night without a gluttonous uramaki; an inside out roll with tuna, cucumber, and avocado, topped with baked sea scallops in a spicy sriracha and mayonnaise sauce; drizzled with unagi sauce. This is absolutely one of my most favorite rolls in the world. So much so that I can't seem to branch out and try new rolls, and I can only eat so much sushi by myself! : )
