I don't know what genius decided to have the NBA All-Star game and the Oscars on the same day, but I won't listen to either of them. Defying tradition for our third Oscars, we won't be having nachos, and we won't be at the All Star game - having cotton candy hawked by man in a neon yellow shirt, or, medium rare steaks delivered by a man in a tie for those who can afford to sit courtside. No, today we're going to cook something I've been wanting to make for a while, sushi.
Everybody is in the living room watching the red carpet coverage of the Oscar's, and in the kitchen we're almost ready for the fun part. We've scooped out the rice, converted 1.1 liters to cups (4.5), set the rice to boil, made the vinegar dressing, (100 milliliters rice wine vinegar, 60 grams sugar, 20 grams salt), and proceeded to be really glad that there is only one system for measuring time. Now, we're ready to break out year-old seaweed, and roll it around rice and raw fish. It's almost as crazy a food as cheese.
Tonight we're making cucumber rolls, California rolls, salmon sashimi, and unagi. Dad is making the unagi and sashimi, and he's slicing the ingredients for the cucumber and California rolls. Together, this should only take fifteen or twenty minutes, so we should be done in time to see all of the awards.
