Friendly Fire; Sushi

pork sushi
“ANOTHER SHARK ATTACK AT BYRON BAY” has been the headline news a little too often in the last few months.

Are there even more sharks or are we just looking a little harder for them now?

Who knows. Either way, the sharks have been hungry this year.

I think it’s possibly because we have been taking a lot of the food from their under water cafeteria. I could be wrong, I have certainly been wrong before, but it’s a theory I have. So, due to the seemingly insatiable appetite of sharks in the Byron Bay area I have opted out of using seafood for my “Friendly Fire Sushi Challenge” on this occasion and have instead headed to the hills and found myself some pork.

Pork is not generally the primary food source for sharks or for any other creature that has been remotely sensationalized and/or thrusted (yeah I just said thrusted) into peoples lives as being a ruthless killer so I feel that it is something that I may use today with out consequence nor burden to add to the weight of my already obese conscience.

I’m sure Dana got to use some kind of delicious seafood that she wasn’t stealing from the mouths of the wee sharky bairn and therefore forcing poppa shark to work a whole heap harder for his money and actually start walking onto the beach on his fins to steal a lone, unaware, overweight, sun glazed tourist and then drag said tourist back into the ocean to feed his family, thus resulting in the end of beach going as we know it today through fear of land walking sharks… The picture I created in my own head right there was probably far more amusing to me than it actually came across…

Brain images 1 – conveying funniness to wider community 0.

So to summarize I can and will tell you that statistically you have more chance of getting killed by falling out of bed or from eating a hotdog than you do from a shark attack, and there is a 100% chance that I shall be making a porky nori rolls for the sushi challenge today.

Epic food battles of history. Who wins? You decide…

See Dana’s (more informative and possibly just darn right better) creation right here.

Mmmm, pulled pork. This was really good and I will probably sort out a recipe for it really soon

Stack it up... Not too up though

And then roll it up. It's as easy as that... I'm too OG to even use a rolling mat, but I reckon Dana will be nice enough to tell you about that

Chop them up so they fit in your mouth and then fit them into your mouth with a little extra QP and possibly some soy and wasabi if you're keen

PORKY SUSHI #1

Cooked brown rice (it’s a Northern Rivers thing)
200g cooked (steamed or roasted) pork belly
QP Japanese mayonnaise
Hoisin sauce
Bean sprouts
Coriander (cilantro)
Shallots
Nori sheets

PORKY SUSHI #2

Cooked brown rice
200g barbecue pulled pork
QP Japanese mayonnaise
Pickles
Slaw
Shallots
Nori sheets

Now you just sorta, um, well, maybe just look at the pictures and roll them up kinda like that. The thing is, when you are rolling nori rolls you just gotta think “teenage years” and remember your mad spliff rolling skills and get them back into play. Certainly not a very good lesson on sushi rolling technique but I think we can all agree it is some sound advice and gripping social commentary from you friends here at foodisthebestshitever.

Anyhow, the sushi; they were both damn tasty but the pulled pork number defo made my face smile the most!

That’s it.

  2. You’re goddamn right I used a bamboo mat!

    PORK BELLY SUSHI!?!
    You sneaky ass son of a bitch, this is fucking brilliant!!

    Howling!

    Like I thought my thoughts were pretty fucked up but that just conjured such a hilarious image, I can’t stop laughing hahaha!

    1. Dear good lord I fucking love this shit D. Your comments inspire me to go on!!!! 😜🙌

      1. You better keep with this shit, are you kidding me?
        This is why I love playing with you, you’re just so much goddamn fun!
        Cheers homie 👌👌

      2. All jokes my friend. It’s all too much fun… Just lacking moments of free time… 😜

  3. You must roll a fat ass blunt because these rolling skills are spectacular homie!
    So are the pics man, you came CORRECT!
    I’m so goddamn happy we did this lol

    1. Bahaha. I’m losing my shit here!!! 😂

  4. You two crack me up. Seriously, pork sushi?? Love..love…and brown rice…love…and the shark story, tickled my fancy and is possibly the real explanation of so many recent shark attacks. You have your finger on the pulse. Having seen Cake’s gorgeus salmony photos and your inventive swagger, in my mind, it’s a tie. But then, I ain’t the judge. Just an innocent yet highly amused bystander.

    1. Very well played Mrs Cheer, I do believe the fence is a good place to sit on such occasions! Thanks for all of your nice words as always 😁👌

    Brilliant. I love the image of daddy shark walking the beach looking for food. Had never thought of using pork in sushi, but now I am so going to try. Then not only will the shark family have food on their plates for the holidays but for us here it is a much more sustainable choice as we raise a few pigs and no salmon!

    I’m on the fence too – you both were amazing.

    1. Heck yes! That makes me excited that you’re gonna try the porky sushi and I’m so hella pumped on peeps that raise their own meat! Nice. Very nice.
      Cheers

        Thank you 😌 I am so jealous you have a friend with a pizza oven – a moveable pizza oven – that is one of my dreams – as is your pizza-oven cooked pork shoulder and that salad …. going to root around in the freezer now or look hungrily at the piggies ……

    I’m over here from Dana’s lovely blog and I have to say that although your ‘sushi’ is definitely more creative, she wins this one on looks. I haven’t made sushi in such a long my time, you have inspired me to get the bamboo Matt out and dust it off for some tasty Christmas Eve treats! We’ve got pre-dinner drinks at one house, then dinner at another and dessert at a third! I also have some delicious pulled pork in the freezer that would be perfect to use! Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Dana always wins on looks… Always 😜. Cheers and good luck 👌

  7. Nice sushi pic…..not too keen on the shark/falling out of bed metaphor…still happier with a lay in on cold winter morning than tempting Papa Shark in sunny Byron Bay:)

    1. Fair crack my friend 😁
