Inari Sushi

Again, Japanese food…

You might have seen these golden sushi in Japanese restaurants or takeaway shops 🙂

***Inari Sushi***

Actually I don’t usually eat them in Japan because they are not my favourite ( I will go for Nigiri-sushi with some fresh seafood rather than Inari-sushi…), but here in Perth I seldom go to Japanese restaurant to eat sushi.  Besides, the sushi in Perth are much much different from those in Japan 😛

In some places, seafood is not fresh, too expensive, not so many variety, the rice is tasteless…and sometimes the person who makes sushi in the restaurant/takeaway shop doesn’t really know what the sushi is / how sushi should be made… ( I won’t tell the name of the shop, but the shop sells some sushi rolls made with JUST vinegared rice: he doesn’t put any other seasoning to the rice such as salt, sugar…of course it tastes VERY VERY vinegary)

Yap, so I don’t usually go out to eat Japanese food here, don’t wanna pay money for those food…

For some reasons my partner loves Inari sushi, and sometimes I make them up at home because it’s much cheaper to just make it rather than buying it from the shop.

When the rice is cooled down, stuff the rice into pockets 🙂

It’s easy, cheap to make!

Sushi are always best to be eaten on the day they are made, and shouldn’t be kept in the fridge. (otherwise rice becomes hard)

    Hi Tom,
    Hahaha they said that? Inari skins have been available from shops for a long time now. I’m glad you didn’t need to import from Japan! 🙂
