This is my drawing of shrimp sushi.  Ebi Nigiri is another easy to make sushi.  All that is needed is headless Black Tiger shrimp, or any type of jumbo shrimp, and sticky short grain rice.  Remove the shell, but keep the tail on.  Use bamboo skewers to straighten the shrimp, then boil until they turn a bright orange.  Stop the cooking process by dipping the shrimp into a bowl of ice.  Add salt and a squeeze of lemon. Lastly, butterfly the shrimp on the bottom and lay onto the rice. Easy!

If you want to make sushi at home and impress your friends, Salmon Nigiri could be the easiest to do. No rolling required. Just have a sharp knife to slice salmon and lay it over sticky short grain rice, seasoned with vinegar, salt and sugar.  It’s important to freeze the salmon over night, approximately 16 hours, before thawing the next day, and preparing to eat. Freezing kills off impurities in the fish. Or simply ask your fish market that you want to make edible raw sushi, and he/she will give you “sushi-grade” salmon.

This is my little sushi drawing. Doesn’t it look delicious?
