This is what you would call soft-core food porn. A smear of wasabi paste, a mound of sushi rice, seaweed caviar, a salmon flower, and a few drops of soy sauce. This deconstructed sushi salmon roll is almost too pretty to eat. I said almost. It was delicious.

Full disclosure: I just bought an order of sashimi salmon and a bowl of sushi rice from my local sushi shop. I didn’t make my own rice or cut my own salmon.
