So every Christmas, there's the eggnog, the gingerbread, the candy canes, and even that generic variety tin of three different popcorns, but maybe this 'Santa sushi' roll will become a new holiday staple food. (Okay, maybe not because I think the country's still polarized when it comes to raw seafood, but hey, guys! Check this out!)
The good YouTubers of How To Make Sushi created a really awesome tutorial of how to make your own Santa sushi rolls at home. And while it's definitely too advanced for a beginner chef like me, it still doesn't stop me from watching the video the whole way through.
For those of you who don't feel like watching a 10 minute video of some dude carving fish, I gifed up my favorite parts. Let's watch together, shall we?
First, the sushi chef shaves the salmon down to make a perfectly red Santa hat.
Boom. Add crab stick and a carrot and the hat is complete.
Then, the beard is thrown together with fluffy sushi rice and some seaweed to create Santa's trademark jolly smile.
Raspberry juice-stained rice is used to add color to his skin. (Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit more like Kraang from 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' right now?)
Put it all together, and what do you get?
Et voila! The Santa sushi roll is complete!
So what do you guys think? Is this not the coolest thing ever? Am I the only one excited about this? Would you eat Santa's face too?
Let me know I'm not the only easily amused one around here, okay?
