31 Dec Japanese carrots with black sesame and spinach with white sesame
Since the excesses of Christmas, it’s been all about Japanese food for me. So it was fitting that my friend Mariana invited me over to hers to make sushi on Friday night. It was loads of fun, and apparently I’m an extremely gifted roller. It must be a skill I acquired in my wilder days. Yet despite my natural talents in the sushi making department, I want to do it a couple more times before I tell you about it. Besides, we didn’t have any fresh fish so it was mainly vegetarian sushi. That’s some of it down there, that we had left over from last night. As I’m not one of those girls who is satisfied with a few bits of sushi for lunch, I also made carrots in black sesame, spinach in white sesame (both from Simply Japanese), and grilled some smoked mackerel which I served on a bed of brown rice. Well, its New Year’s Eve, I have to get my strength up!
