In September 2017 I added a quantity calculator to the Sushi rice recipe page, to help users get just the right amount of rice depending on how many sushi rolls they are looking to make. The most popular selection world-wide is to make enough sushi rice for 6 rolls. That would be enough for 2-4 people. But what about 20 rolls or more? That’s a sushi party.

Can you guess what the new food sensation is? I know that many of you will get it wrong…..It is sushi croissants! I can imagine the look on your faces as you try to imagine how it tastes and smells. Well, the croissant is for those who are courageous enough to take their taste buds on a wild trip; the people who enjoy the thrill of trying out new treats.
Creative bakers at Mr. Holmes Bakehouse came up with this sushi croissant which they call a ‘California croissant’. The croissant is a baked pastry which is stuffed with seaweed, wasabi, smoked salmon and ginger.

Is that a crime?
While there are people who explain their encounter with the sushi croissant as ‘love at first sight’, there are others who do not see the need of having a ‘fish’ croissant. Some have not tried out the croissant and are only against the sushi croissant because they think that it has a disgusting taste.

10 super important tips for successful sushi making
Always keep a bowl of water and a kitchen towel close to you when making sushi.
Use a sharp and long knife for the cutting. Wipe the knife and keep it wet in between cuts.
If you are having trouble cutting the roll without everything falling apart, try laying a piece of saran tape on the roll and cut through it. That should help holding things together.
As soon as the nori is out of it’s case, roll quickly. A moisture absorbed nori doesn’t stick as well.
Plan your quantities right, it’s a shame to throw away good food. 1 cup of sushi rice should be enough for 3 medium size rolls. If you are buying fish you should get about 75gr of fish per roll. Among my guests, the average person consumes 2 rolls in one sitting.
Only use raw fish if the seller or packaging specifically states it meant to be consumed raw, and make sure it’s kept cool right until processing and consumption. If not sure, or if it’s your first time making sushi, there are plenty of alternatives.
You can’t have raw fish if you are pregnant!
Be creative! The strangest combinations work well with sushi. Have you ever tried adding fish roe, pate or pineapple to your sushi?
Presentation is half the story. Make sure you arrange the sushi in an interesting layout on nice porcelain plate, or a sushi boat if you have one.
Experiment with sauce. Sure, sushi should be served with a small plate of soy sauce, but have you tried Teriyaki, Sesame Oil, Unagi or Ponzu sauce,
