The November 2009 Daring Cooks challenge was brought to you by Audax of Audax Artifex and Rose of The Bite Me Kitchen. They chose sushi as the challenge.
This challenge was the most fun I've had in a Daring challenge since I've joined either group. We had some friends over, and all made the sushi as quite the team effort. After making the required dragon roll, spiral roll, and 4 pairs of nigiri, we had fun going a little nutty and getting creative with the wide variety of ingredients I had prepared.
Nigiri: tamago (sweet egg, I used this recipe), tuna, salmon, and red bell pepper, and the spiral roll
Dragon Roll, with tuna, crab, and cucumber inside and avocado with homemade eel sauce (made with this recipe) on top

A big thank you to Rose and Audax for being such gracious hosts this month. I love knowing how cheap and easy it is to make one of my favorite indulgences at home any time I want! I especially enjoyed learning how to make rice authentically. Who wants to join me for my next sushi party?
