Today we went to Oysi Oysi Japanese Restaurant to learn how to make sushi with Experiences by SocialShopper. The experience is to Learn the Art of Sushi Making & Create Gourmet Rolls with Dungeness Crab Plus Sake Tasting is for 1 or 2 people. Lots of couples came for a great date night!
If you are a fan of the movie Jiro Dreams of Sushi and want to fulfill your wildest sushi chef dreams, this would be a great experience to learn the basics. Today’s sushi making class we learned how to make Salmon Carpaccio, Dynamite Roll, and a Real Crab California Roll with a dungeness crab. Each person is given a sushi rolling mat to use and to keep.
In addition, each course is served with a sake taster : Premium Ginjo Sake, Nama Organic Sake, and Nigori Silky Mild Sake (unfiltered).
Salmon Carpaccio: The Chef gave us salmon sashimi and a peppercorn tuna. Garnishes of onions, Japanese sprouts, cucumbers and red peppers. We were shown how to roll the sashimi and dipped in ponzu vinaigrette.
Dynamite Roll: Chef showed us how to spread the rice on the seaweed evenly. Remember not to put too much ingredients inside the roll otherwise it would be hard to seal it.
- 1 Nori Sheet
- 1/2 cup Sushi Rice
- 1 prawn tempura
- 1/4 avocado
- Julienne cucumber
- mayonnaise as desired
- 2 tablespoons tobiko (fish roe)
- Take the sheet of nori seaweed and put it shiny side down
- Damp hand with vinegared water to prevent sushi rice from sticking to your hands.
- Gently pat and spread sushi rice on an even layer on the seaweed.
- Flip over so that the rice is facing the sushi rolling mat.
- Add avocado, mayo, tobiko, prawn tempura.
- Roll the sushi using the bamboo sushi rolling mat.
- Cut the dynamite roll into eights.
Next we took apart the previously cooked and chilled dungeness crab. The real crab meat are used to make a California Roll. We were also given ponzu soy sauce if we chose to eat our crab meat.
Coffee Jelly: dessert as we concluded our class.
It was a really fun experience and I know I will never become a sushi chef. Next time I will just go to a Japanese restaurant and let the pros do the hard work!
