Temaki Sushi, hand over that roll!

When Alicia asked if we’d be interested in an impromptu Temaki dinner, I was all over that like salt on edemame. Te means hand and maki meals roll. Temaki me! It’s a casual Japanese meal introduced to me by Alicia, who spent time teaching in Japan. All of the sushi accoutrements you desire are ready cut and laid out for you to create your own masterpiece. Each bite is perfect, because it’s exactly how you want it to be. It is up there with my Favourite All Time Meals. It’s such a simple meal but it has such a special feel, like Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner does. It’s the artful way everything is presented, so delicate and so fresh. -bvox

We laid out asparagus, cucumber, avocado, radish sprouts, shiso leaves, salmon (sake), smoked salmon, salmon roe (ikura), tuna (maguro), capelin roe (masago), scallop (hotate), cooked prawn (ebi), fresh cooked rice (unseasoned), toasted nori sheets, wasabi, mayo, and umebosh – a saltily pickled japanese plum. We laid everything out on Alicia’s beautiful sushi-ware that she made.

    I don’t see any saki on that table.

      Yes, kids love this meal because they can make their own roll!
