Tropical Pineapple Sushi Rolls

Welcome to my kitchen. Sit down and make yourself at home.  We are making “sushi”.

I found a new passion embarking on the Sushi Adventure..  There is a huge misconception that sushi means raw fish, when it really means vinegared rice or items served on or in vinegared rice.  Sushi is versatile and can be a favorite food from vegetarians to fish, poultry, and meat lovers.

I hope you fall for these adorable mouthfuls! These tasty Tropical Pineapple Sushi Rolls make a fun appetizer and a delightful meal.
