European sushi recipes

Do you love sushi? It's one of my favourite lunchtime treats and most often it's gluten free too! It was something I enjoyed all too myself but recently the kids have discovered the joy of those little mouthfuls and so I have to share.





























Buying it for all of us is now too expensive and as a cookery teacher I thought I should be able to make it myself. So when I saw Yutaka's EU Sushi search competition I knew I should put my skills to the test.

I came up with four different sushi ideas based on EU countries and food that I love.

Ireland - a colcannon inspired sushi roll
Spain - a tapas inspired pepper, mozzarella and tomato rice Nigiri
Italy - a take on my three tomato risotto Nigiri
Italy - pesto and asparagus rolls
Italy - Pesto and asparagus Nigiri
Greece - a dolmades inspired roll

You can find all the recipes below

  3. I don't have the skill to actually make my own, but I've got our teenager into sushi lately. Sometimes I think she just like to hear me order the 'squid balls' though...#alittlebitofeverything
