I made this sushi using the fish on the left (forgot the name but it’s pickled and tastes is like mackerel), avocado, seasoned and cooked eel, seaweed (kim: nori).  I bought these fish at a Japanese grocery store.

On the lettuce, the red stuff is a pickle that I made with beets. Its actual color is very beautiful, but the photo did not seem to show the beautiful color. Anyway, I enjoyed this sushi a lot. It’s very simple to make. I made a wasabi and soy sauce mix to dip it in.
