Homemade Sushi for Valentine’s Day

Since yesterday was Valentine’s Day I wanted to make it special by cooking up something fun with my kids, so we decided on sushi (spicy tuna rolls, asparagus rolls, beet rolls, nigiri tuna and scallop sashimi).  The kids were leery of raw fish, but enjoyed making and eating asparagus sushi. Here is peanut #1 spreading the rice:

I learned to make sushi from Nick Nishi, who owns Hamakaze Sushi & Izakaya, when he taught a class last year.  His restaurant is amazing and not only includes sushi, but small Japanese tapas-style plates.  I highly recommend it if you are looking for a great sushi place in West LA!
