How to satisfy a sushi craving without rolling your own

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Westboro|Recipes and Food

I’ve made this recipe for “sushi salad” I found on the Canadian Family website a few times. I think I need to start making it every week:

June 29 #dailylunches - sushi salad

Sidebar: I’ve been craving sushi for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been by the Naked Fish Sushi place in Westboro THREE TIMES, only to find a “sorry we’re renovating” sign on the door. (Hello! Why can’t you put an ETA on there too?) There is no information on their Facebook/Twitter/website.

In response to this sad state of affairs, the youngest and I made this sushi salad for lunch yesterday. Happily, it totally hit the spot. I made it using regular white rice because that’s all I had, but otherwise kept the recipe as-is. It is very flavourful, and made our tummies very happy. I think the avocado was the best part of this salad.

In other news, my 21-day vegetarian challenge is DONE. (!) I am still collecting my thoughts about it, so stay tuned for the final post in the series. You may or may not be surprised by the outcome. :)

Thanks for sharing the recipe! A is a big fan of Naked Fish and was equally disappointed to find out it was closed for renos the other day – I think I will swing by the grocery store and pick up a few things on the way home!
