Kid’s Sushi Platter


kids sushi platter (683x1024)Sushi Platter…………. This is what I missed doing, I worked in a Japanese sushi bar for more than 7 years. I think I made all kinds of sushi so far not to mention the “HOT” dishes on the Japanese menu. Still part of my daughter’s Kids menu, I now bring you my very own Kid’s Sushi Platter. This sushi is a combination of cooked teriyaki and vegetables as I decided not to use raw or fresh fish on my sushi as we will not consumed the food immediately. We will transport the food from the house to the party venue. Sometimes we need to consider this things as we need to practice food safety first as I will feed 35 children in this party. ……….Yum!!!…………….Did you know that dried seaweeds sheets or Nori is rich in iodine and iron and quite high in protein. It is also a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, magnesium and riboflavin(B2). Not only does it have all these nutritional riches, it is also a low-fat food!

Kid’s Sushi


Kids Sushi……..It is not the traditional sushi you are thinking of, Its my own version of kids sushi specially made for my daughters lunch box at school. The filling is made from our left over food of pork teriyaki. My daughter loves to eat sushi, she is requesting it for her lunch box, but since I am not prepared to have a sushi rice and some salmon, tuna for sushi filling. We just made this left over teriyaki as filling and an ordinary rice as the sushi rice.
