Homemade Sushi | Fleur & Mike

Hi there, guys, and welcome backto our kitchen. In these days i am so excitedbecause we’re making sushi. Thanks a lot toElizebeth Pinchuk and Ceci Couture who requested that we make sushi. The fundamental thing with sushiis genuinely the rice and we now have made this upfront considering the fact that it wishes to becold before you roll it, otherwise it will wreckthe entire factor. So what now we have achieved is cooked upour rice with rice wine vinegar. I am without a doubt gonna bemaking California roll. Mike’s inventing his own. I’m gonna popmy bamboo mat on there. I have never made sushi in a long time. I’ve made it beforebut i have not made it in about 5 years traditionally. And you then flip it overso you have a satisfactory, flat cling movie base. So mine, I have got to do somethingreally technical with. I simply put it down and that’s it. Cross me the nori, please. There you go.- we’ve got the seaweed. Good, you’re making surewe obtained wet hands. It seems that, you shouldstill be in a position to see some seaweed by way of your rice.I’m going to do exactlythe identical with my rice, though we are going to be doing somethingslightly exclusive in a 2nd. Need extra water. Oh, you’re now not incorrect. What? I am gonna put a mug of waterfor finger dipping right right here. Work well done, sous chef. I am gonna go away a bit lip. I’ve received a lip.It’s really a fun sushi. It is also rather fun to makewith little kiddies, if in case you have any kiddies,or any nieces or nephews. So then i am gonna flip mine overbecause mine is gonna be inside out. Ooh, don’t knowif i might be doing that right now. Are you competent? I am gonna begin to fill mine up, so i’m form of doingmy own loopy combinations. So i’m gonna startwith some prawns. So i’m gonna measurehow a lot chive i would like, which is aboutyae so much and you pop.So i am gonna addsome cream cheese in. Mike, that is manner toomuch cream cheese. No, it is now not, that is gonna be good. Can i have a bit of bitof cream cheese for mine? You are not allowed any’purpose you failed to request it. This isn’t your cream cheese. It can be my cream cheese,it can be my recipe. Fine. Now i’m simply puttingsome wasabi all the approach alongside. Now it does not seem likeI put much on, however believe me, it will knock your socks off. I’m gonna take a bit of cucumber like thisand then i’m gonna pop it… Pop it in the core. I’m also gonna take some avocado and then i am additionally takingmy seafood sticks, you need to use recent crab if you want,but it surely’s beautiful rough to search out. Part off just a little,’reason you do not need a whole one, you more often than not wantlike a half of 1.That is how we roll. You are taking it and roll it over. This isn’t gonna work.- it can be the moment of actuality. You have received to squish it together ‘reason the avocadoneeds squishing down. Squish it like that. Or perhaps it’s going to. And then you definitely take it overand you roll it again to the threshold and also you squish itso it is style of square. Exciting. And second of fact. Are we equipped for this? So yours has turnedout lovely good. There may be a moderate difficulty on the foundation that you’ve donethis before, i have now not. You have got, you have doneit with me earlier than. On no account.I’ve never truely rolled one. I’ve never rolled one. He’s lying to you. He is copying me. He wouldn’t havedone this or else. I’d have donethis exactly what I knew what to do. Copying me once more. Whatever. And then… It does appear really tasty. A bit little bit of water on the edge, which Fleur didn’t observe to do,which I did.There we go. Correct. Let’s take these offand let’s make some extra. After which we are able to get reducing. I’m gonna add… Smoked hamand cream cheese and cucumber. K, i’m going for a veggie one, which is, just usingall the veggies. Smoked salmon. Mine’s gonna be remarkable. First-rate.- Over stuffed. See, your process does not work. Gonna squish it out eventually. Whereas mine on the other hand… Oh, wait.I forgot to show it over. So it can be now not gonna like yours.Yours looks rubbish now,mine appears potent. That… Just wrap it in anotherpiece of seaweed. That’s dishonest. It can be not. You snooze you lose. There is cream cheese everywhere. It is reducing time. You’re doing the cutting. Moist knife, wet fingers on the grounds that you don’t wantto keep on with the whole thing. I am gonna chop the tip off first and discard thatbecause we don’t want it. Goodbye. This is the one i’m fascinated about. – this is Mike’s customary one.- that is my normal new sort. It looks good. So i am gonna put some ginger on hereand i’m gonna put a significant lump considering the fact that i do know Fleurloves her ginger. I’m additionally gonna add some wasabi and i’m gonna adda massive chunk of this ‘motive i admire a lotof wasabi on mine. And then some soy sauce for dipping. So excited.Do we eat them?Now please.
