Crayfish Sushi Bowl

I remember becoming obsessed with the notion of sushi as a child.  It would often appear in Japanese cartoons or get mentioned in American television, but growing up in the flat lands of Norfolk 15 years ago, it wasn’t something that was readily available.  Still, the bizarre white rolls surrounded in a deep green coating…
