creative sushi filing

Sushi is regarded a healthy food as it is supposedly low in calories. The salmon and tuna slices, slivers of prawn and cucumber and slices of avocado and egg that fit snugly within sticky rice rolls are low in fats and high in nutrients. Sushi doesn’t need to contain raw fish. In fact, you can include anything you want in your sushi rolls. The key here is to imaginative and bold. 

Below are a few sushi filling ideas I’ve tried. They taste superb.
