|** E e l A v o c a d o R o l l **| - A CLASSIC. Everyone from a sushi beginner her to the experts of can pick up what the eel avocado roll is putting down. - Because eel is always served cooked even if you don’t eat raw fish, you can enjoy this roll. - For the more nuanced sushi lover, eel avocado is like that simple home cooked meal. You can always go back no matter how refiner your palette becomes. - Topped with Japanese bbq sauce. The buttery texture of avocado balances the sweetness from the eel and the sauce and gives the roll a creamy finish. - You can never go wrong with adding an eel avocado roll to your dinner plate 🥑
* T i c T a c T o e R o l l * - Tuna, salmon and white tuna in a rice paper wrap. It looks deceptively simple, but’s it’s one of the most DIFFICULT roles to prepare. - You can’t hide imperfections with vegetables like cucumber and avocado or with a cute garnish. You have to cut the fish *perfectly* — everything has to be in the right proportions. - Then, you have the additional challenge of the rice paper wrap. It’s different than seaweed or soy paper… It needs to be wet to prepare and then served RIGHT AWAY to maintain the right consistency - Finally the presentation: Every cut of the roll and fish needs to be PERFECT. You can get away with jagged edges on some rolls, but not the Tic Tac Toe. With the TTT precision is the 🔑 - Leave a comment if you’ve tried this roll, would love to hear what you think 👏
Hiya and good morning :) - We're open and taking orders for delivery and carry-out, so if you plan on Netflixing over your long-weekend (we hear that Fyre Festival documentary is pretty good 🤔) or just staying cozy indoors, give us a ring -- we'll bring lunch and dinner to you. - Or come on by and warm up with a hot sake with us 🍶
The CCC roll 👏🙌🙏 - One of the all-time faves at Shogun. I call this my “guilty pleasure” roll. It’s delicious 😋 - Kani, cream cheese, and crunches in the middle, wrapped in seaweed and gently fried before topping with special sauces. - Check it out when you’re ready to treat yo’self - #albanynyeats #albanyny #sushi #518eats #albanysushi
That delicate, sweet flavor of striped bass sushi appeals to all sorts of tastes — it’s neither as sweet as salmon, nor as strong as mackerel 🐟 - When looking at striped bass, you’re looking for that translucent white with pink overtones - It’s not a popular as tuna or salmon but we def recommend giving this fish a try next time you’re out to eat 😋🍽 - Tag a friend who would like to try striped bass sushi 🍣!!!
The side angle of looking at mackerel is where you’re going to notice the differences in texture of mackerel. The shiny, smoother texture of the fish skin really pops while the off-white flesh of the fish practically looks ready to flake off in tender pieces. - Tag a friend who you'd like to go eat sushi with 👯👫👯♂️ - #sushi #518eats #saba #mackerel #capitalregion #albanyny #albany
One of our fave things about fish is how different it can look from different angles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are two pieces of mackerel (saba) sushi from 3 different angles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You don’t get a full appreciation for the subtle coloring differences, the different texture of different pieces of the fish, without seeing it from angles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And even with 3 different views, a photo on Instagram will never do the justice of feeling or tasting the warm rice and sweet fish together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you tried mackerel yet? Did you like it or not like it? Let us know in the comments.
The Golden Dream Roll is one of the few rolls where the shrimp tempura -- the main fish ingredient -- is placed ON TOP of the roll instead of on the inside. - Seems like a small tweak… but it changes everything. - How the chef makes the roll is completely different. The shrimp tempura has to be perfect. Flaws are exposed. You have to be fast, because the tempura is hot. - How you taste and experience the roll is completely different. Seaweed isn’t hitting the palette first, but the tempura is, AND THEN you’re crunching into the seaweed, the rice, and everything else. - It’s these subtle differences that make the Golden Dream magnificent to see and taste 😋 - #albanyny #albany #capitaldistrict #sushi #518eats #sushianatomy
MAKING OF THE DELMAR ROLL - This is in HONOR of our sister Shogun store in Delmar, the OG Shogun of the Capital District. They’re celebrating their 10-year anniversary this week 🙌 - Like building a restaurant, building a roll is a process. To build it correctly, you have to put love and time into getting the basic steps right. - Choosing the right wrap (soy paper) to making great tasting sushi rice to distributing it evenly on the paper. - Cutting and layering on the right amount of salmon, avocado 🥑and eel. Then adding a light drizzle of tempura flakes to balance out the fish and provide texture and crunch. - Next the roll gets wrapped in soy paper and crafted so the ingredients hold and yet can be beautifully presented. - Like building a restaurant (or any business) you have to get all the foundational steps right to make it worth putting in front of the customer. - Thanks to all our customers for all the support these last 10 years 🙏 - #albanyny #albany #capitaldistrict #sushi #518eats #sushianatomy 📷 @octopus.anatomy
