I love sushi. But it's pretty pricey to be going out and eating it with any frequency. So, sometimes I buy a sushi grade Ahi steak at Costco and play around with ingredients. It's cheaper than going out and it's always a charm when I get a high five from the husband for something delicious. I only wish I could think of a better name for this one!
This would be a super treat to serve at your next gathering!
