Salmon Sushi Wrap with Spicy Mayo
Let’s have a show of hands – Who here is intimidated by sushi? (Sticks hand in air)
I wanted to make sushi for a long time but I was a wee bit scared. For one, what actually is sushi grade fish and how am I supposed to make sure I don’t get sick on it? And what’s more, where does one find sushi grade fish in Northern Colorado?
I finally discovered the Whole Foods right smack in the middle of the busiest street in Fort Collins carries sushi grade fish and also discovered I knew the person working the seafood counter! Not only did he explain the basics for me, he trimmed up a piece of salmon and away I went, feeling much better about my sushi undertaking.
Now if you’re not into the whole “raw fish” thing I totally get it and you can absolutely use cooked fish, shrimp or crabmeat and still make a delicious wrap! Plus who doesn’t want to learn to make spicy mayo? But my goal with this recipe is to leave you feeling informed and comfortable with trying sushi on your own! Be sure to check out the Learn the Lingo section under the recipe as well for some fun facts about sushi and comment with any questions. Happy sushi making!
