Yep. Sushi. Yeah, I know sushi has raw fish. And yeah, I know I’m a hypocrite. Here is yet another thing to cross off my “I swear I’ll never do [insert action]” list. I have GOT to stop saying never! lol.
But, sushi is awesome. And it isn’t always raw. Seth and I have fallen in love with our homemade California rolls. What with the real crab, delicious avocado, and baby cucumbers all rolled up in a special sushi rice (not plain white rice, it’s delicious), we can eat a whole serving (four pieces, or one roll) for just 200-some calories. And it is surprisingly filling too!
I have a whole list of cooked-seafood sushi recipes that we are going to try over the next couple of months. Things like Seven Spiced Salmon Rolls, Salmon-Asparagus-Mayonnaise Rolls, Crab-Asparagus-Shitake Rolls, Glazed Eel Sushi, and Beef Teriyaki Rolls just sound so delicious – okay, they look delicious in the cookbook. 🙂
This week, though, my menu is going to be pretty simple. I’m sticking with our current fav, California Rolls (nom-nom), some easy Chicken Cacciatore (with extra veggies and served over rice instead of potatoes), Grilled Chicken Citrus Salad, a seafood and veggy salad (crab, avocado, various veggies and lots of lettuce – it doesn’t even need dressing b/c of the various flavors), and maybe Vegetable & Bean Chili. The shopping is done, the meals are planned and I do believe it is going to be a great week!
I never anticipated that learning to cook healthy, delicious meals would be so, well, delicious and fun to boot! Have a great week everyone!
