I think tonight was the first time I cooked for a bunch of people. California rolls using egg instead of seaweed, scallops two ways (Italian and Japanese), and pasta with shrimp tomato sauce. It seems to have gone over pretty well. Hurrah. I forgot to take pictures though.


Sounds yummy! I...

Sounds yummy! Is that a celebration for the first day at the new job? How did it go?

pictures of the california rolls would have been interesting. i'm puzzled about this egg substitution thing. how did you get the egg (scrambled?) to act as a wrapper?

Crack some egg...

Crack some eggs, beat them, get a big pan with a lot of oil and heat it on high, then dump the eggs in. Spread them around as quickly as possible, as thinly as possible. It's kind of like a mix between an omelette and a crepe. It took some practice to not get a wreck back. You can try to flip it, but if it's hot enough and there's enough oil, you can afford to cook it on one side. Flipping it always ended badly for me.

A standard sushi roller is all you need (without one, the egg is far more likely to rip on the rice). I couldn't think of anything normally found in sushi to make the egg stick to itself, though.

It just happened to coincide with my first day of work.
