My Black Sausages.....oooppsss...

"Stole" another recipe from Elin's blog. Thanks luv, for taking me to get the necessary items from the 100yen shop and teaching me how to do this too.... Hope this student didn't disappoint you in any way.

Fernie is always pestering me to make her some sushi to eat... I kept procrastinating cos I really don't know how to do, what type of rice to use, I am also not sure... so instead of Japanese sushi, I ended up doing Ipoh sushi. Went to Leong Sin Nam Shop to buy 300gm of fish/meat paste...
Very simple, just the paste and the seaweed pieces...

first step, spread evenly the fish paste...

then roll it up with the sushi mat
(had a hard time rolling, actually... why ah...)

what does this look like...
a sausage, right? only it is black in color..
(i can sense someone grinning)

ok, fry with low low fire...
(stop grinning....please....)

(ok, stop grinning!!)
this is the AFTERMATH...

Let me tell u....
Don't judge them by the cover..
They might look "strange" but...


(next time add in some carrots for more colors...
this time i think i murdered the recipe again...Lol..)


  1. wow...auntie, you can really cook and bake stuff already! so good...hehe...

  2. Looks interesting, I'd try this one of these days. :)

  3. henry: rice? u mean in the sushi or the rice on bowl? this one is not sushi so no rice.. but we ate this with rice.. do i make sense? hahahaa..

    Gab: cuba cuba saja.. not expert yet.. playplay first , next time i teach u.. ok?

    tes: do try... hehe.. u end up laughing too..

  4. heheeheeh...sure looks funny but i'm going to give this a try. do you roll it with the mat or just the sushi? i am really confused when i see other bloggers making sushi.

  5. barb: i rolled this using the mat.. not so used to it but boleh la.. otherwise very difficult to get the round shape if u dont use the mat.. add in more liews next time... make it more colourful like elin's recipe... i was just trying out yesterday.. next time i know what to do.. hehe...

  6. Looks good wat... We don't compare compare with pro ma...sshhhh... 'ngak dou sik' one... can pass!!

  7. The fish paste? how does it look? May I know...a funny-looking dish..yet yummy-looking too...and interesting too.

    It turned out well after being sliced...nice :)

  8. This looks interesting, not sure if I would like it though. Fish paste is something I have never seen or heard of, but then there's a lot of things I have never seen or heard of. LOL Thanks for your visit and comments. I do appreciate them.

  9. P.S. I forgot to mention, it does look better sliced. LOL

  10. :D hahahaha.. i dunno if u r talking bout me or not.. but i was sure grinning from ear to ear when i saw dat and william was like.. 'apasat with u?'

    but then again.. yummylicious lah claire... nice black sausage.. ROTFL... seriously, i might even wanna try this! :)

  11. LOL you so cute Claire!!! No i would never judge your food by just looking one! hehehe as long as it taste nice then okay already lah~ Happy Cooking~ ;)

  12. Hmmm...I have never tried sushi although my husband has, having lived in Japan for several years. I must admit it does look very intriguing when all done.

  13. can you notify me if your neighbour is moving out ah... then I can now start to tumpang makan at your place.. how nice if Andy is back often hoh... hehehehe... :D

  14. Holy Smoke! Black sausages? Never seen before...but looks good.
