My son requested some sushi for bento last night. He began to like to eat sushi recently, after the tuna bread sushi that I have made for him…but with normal rice without vinegar and ingredients that he likes only. :) So…I made him this Shikai Maki Sushi bento this morning.
I saw this beautiful type of sushi from YouTube quite some time ago, but do not try to make it until now. This is my second time to try and it was much better than my first..hehe. Actually it is easy and simple to make after you know the step-by-step procedures and try it youself for one or two times. I found this Make sushi at home! which provided step-by-step instructions and photos to help you make you own Shikai Maki sushi.
The sushi was made with rice, imitation crab meat and nori. There are fried prawns and broccoli florets and some lettuce in the box too.
My son was happy to see this beautiful sushi this morning and hope that he will enjoy eating it during his breaks. :)
