Koshi is kosher sushi.  Koshi is delicious.  Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Now that we live in Miami (which, at times makes me feel like we live in Israel or a really really tropical Brooklyn), we have access to all sorts of imitation kosher goods and the best is the shellfish.  As most folks may know, being Jewish and kosher means no eating of the shellfish.  The laws of kashrut (kosher) state that only fish with fins and scales can be eaten so that means no eel, no lobster, no shrimp, etc.  BUT, the imitation shrimp and crab are made of a white fish base and actually quite tasty.

I’m gonna be very honest here.  I don’t really make the sushi. Well, really, I only make one kind of roll–sweet potato with cream cheese and green onions.  Yum!  Otherwise, the husband does everything else.  He’s very good at it. I’m in charge of that roll and making the sushi rice.  Some of the rolls he delves into usually look like this:

Fake crab
Seedless cucumbers
Green onions




Sushi grade tuna

It’s also really yummy to make a green roll:

Seedless cucumbers
Asparagus that has been blanched

We also make a little side dip out of mayo and sweet chili sauce.  It’s a nice little dip and really easy to make.  Plus, its mayonnaise and you know how us Jews loooove our mayonnaise.
