Sushi is probably my favourite Japanese food. It is just so delicious! With soft, sticky rice and crunchy vegetables, who doesn’t enjoy this amazing dish? I especially like having soy sauce with them as it gives them such a lovely flavour.

You could just have the sushi with some sauces, but we decided to have a light salad with it. To make it all you need is some edamame beans, pepper and watercress. Then you need to prepare the vegetables and pour on a dressing of your choice. Simple!
