Home made sushi!

I got the idea to try making sushi today.  I'd seen a recipe for Spam nigiri, so I decided to try that.  Then I figured since I was buying nori anyway, I might as well make some other kinds.



Clockwise:  Shrimp nigiri, salmon maki, Spam nigiri and tuna maki.

These are the ones that came out decent looking.  I had a bunch that are rather misshappen.  Still taste OK though.  I don't have a proper bamboo mat for rolling sushi, and a lot of the early nigiri came out weird because I hadn't figured out that my hands needed to be damp; if they're too dry the rice sticks to everything and if they're too wet the rice won't stick to itself.
