Homemade Sushi is Easy with Surimi

May 24, 2016 04:31AM ● Published by Family Features

Sushi is a popular choice for a night out with friends or a romantic date night, but good sushi can also break the bank. If you’re looking for a way to indulge your sushi cravings while sticking to your monthly budget, surimi seafood is a great alternative to raw seafood that you can prepare right at home.

Surimi is a fully cooked Japanese seafood ingredient, so it’s a great introduction for those new to sushi. Made from premium wild Alaskan Pollock – a highly-sustainable whitefish – and real snow crab, surimi is a good source of protein and is more cost effective than cuts of raw seafood.

It’s also an ideal ingredient for a variety of people: expectant mothers can indulge their sushi cravings anxiety-free and parents can introduce the nutritional benefits of seafood into their kids’ diets by hosting a family fun night crafting sushi together. Additionally, more young adults are now choosing to cook at home, but still have a penchant for customization. Surimi allows you to skip the pricey sushi restaurant and instead create your own unique sushi at home.

Made with Crab Delights by blogger Nicole Harris of Wonky Wonderful, you can enjoy these Homemade California Roll Sushi Stacks with friends, family or a date. You can see how the sushi stacks were formed in this video.
