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.

European sushi recipes

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
Italy – a take on my three tomato risotto Nigiri

Spain – a tapas inspired pepper, mozzarella and tomato rice Nigiri
Italy – pesto and asparagus rolls

Greece – a dolmades inspired roll
Italy – Pesto and asparagus Nigiri

You can find all the recipes below

  1. 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
