View Full Version : kid sushi - not for purists

02-19-2012, 11:35 PM
I was trying to figure out how to make sushi for the kids that was bite sized (for little kids), would hold together well, and had more than one non-binder component and I happened to see a little container of seaweed snacks while digging through the pantry. I made bite sized sushi-tacos. They were perfect. The kids ate lots of fish and avocado (as opposed to a ton of rice) and there was virtually no mess. I put a dab of eel sauce or wasabi (thanks, mhlee) on top and everybody but me went to town until they were full. Just for kicks, here's a pic after everyone else finished up along with the requisite blade present.4738 I apologize for the crappy color. My pics suck.:dontknow:

I thought that this thread was about sushi made with baby goat: now THAT wouldn't be one for purists.

I'm going to copy this idea when my son is the right age. ;)

Just read this, and that is way cool. Love it. My 7-year-old is a picky eater but gobbles up raw fish like she is a whale cruising through the ocean and straining it through her teeth. You've inspired me. I should tinker around with small sushi bites more.
