My Yummy Local Life

{May 18, 2014}   Bread and Wine 18

Sushi Bowls (paired with Wanderlust Vermillion Red IPA)


Sushi Bowls (This is what happens when your Nori is too dry to roll)


Sushi grade salmon

siracha, 2 tsp

soy sauce, 2 tsp

rice vinegar, 1 tsp

sushi rice

How to:

Slice your tuna into long thin strips. Mix together 2t Siracha, 2t soy sauce, 1t rice vinegar and marinate tuna for a while. Then, prep sushi rice per this recipe and cook per Alton Brown’s recipe. Slice avocado, quick sear baby bok choi, and chop your far too dry nori into tiny strips. When rice is ready, pile it all into a bowl and top with a little extra soy sauce and fresh mixed wasabi. Enjoy with the aforementioned beer.

Tasting Notes:

Lisa: This was a good way to have sushi; it was more filling than just plain sushi.  In my opinion it was a lot harder to get all of the flavors into one bite, so I prefer rolled sushi.

Gary: Like sushi, only more filling. The little hidden bits of wasabi make it fun. This beer from Wanderlust is the best Arizona beer that I’ve had since moving to Arizona. Phenomenal balance of malty sweetness and hop bitterness. Truly lovely beer. This is a seasonal and/or limited release from Wanderlust so you might want to head up to flag and get you some before they’re out. They also have the best growlers in the world.
