Don’t we all need some good luck right about now? Well, I’ve found the answer to all of our problems:
The Story Of A “Golden Good Luck” Sushi Roll!
I love food stories – big food, unique food, and of course, food from Japan. Did you know that February 3 was “Setsubun” in Japan?
Well, it was, and that leads to this “solid gold sushi roll!”
The incredible website “RocketNews24” describes Setsubun this way:
“It is an old fashioned day in which some households throw beans to ward off evil and invite good fortune into their lives. That custom is said to be gradually fading away, however, only to be replaced by the custom of eating huge sushi rolls known as ehomaki (lucky direction sushi roll).”
This roll, however, isn’t wrapped in seaweed:
This one is housed in a thin sheet of GOLD LEAF!
While the golden wrapper is unique, don’t forget what’s packed inside – this is one terrific sushi roll filled with amazing ingredients from all over Japan!
Tuna from Oma, Aomori
Japanese puffer fish from Hyogo
Red sea bream from Nagasaki
Longtooth Grouper from Nagasaki
Oval squid from Nagasaki
Kuruma prawn from Ehime
Steamed abalone from Miyazaki
Boiled conger eel from Miyazaki
Boiled horsehair crab from Hokkaido
Salted herring roe from Hokkaido
Salmon roe pickled in soy sauce from Hokkaido
Raw sea urchin from Hokkaido
