How to Make Homemade Kosher Sushi

Now that summer is here, we are back with another delicious how2kosher video! Shana’s Sushi is popular among those who frequent her home and have tasted her amazing homemade sushi rolls that she makes in honor of Shabbos. After much cajoling, we received permission to document the making of these special rolls that are made by someone with no professional sushi utensils or training; she makes sushi because she loves sharing one of her favorite foods with her family. Besides for some classic rolls such as spicy tuna, there were a few other mouth-watering homegrown varieties that we sampled that had no official names – for the simple reason that they did not need any. Simply Good.

Here are the ingredients that were used in this video:

Sushi-Grade Salmon (you can buy this at a fresh fish market or at some sushi stores)
Fresh Tuna (you can buy this at a fresh fish market or at some sushi stores)
Spicy Tuna ( fresh tuna mixed with mayo, cayenne pepper, and green onion)
Fake Crab
Baked Seasoned Sweet Potatoes
Green Onion
Teriyaki Sauce
Spicy Mayonnaise
Sushi Rice


Shana’s Tip:

Just throw any leftover scraps or pieces that fall apart into a bowl for an instant sushi salad.

How Kosher Popcorn for Shabbos is Made

Walking down Bar Ilan Street in Yerushalayim hours before Shabbos, one can smell the fresh popcorn in the air as vendors market their wares from storefronts that spill over the already crowded sidewalks as people wait for the last buses to their destination. Mehadrin (in this case Eidah HaCharedis) hechsherim require that the kernels are stored in sealed marked containers until they are popped and then stipulate that the fresh popcorn be bagged and sealed. While the added stringency might add a shekel or so to the cost compared to the non-mehadrin, even if one is not stringent, there is that good feeling that the chances of having a bug in your popcorn are extremely slim.
