Student evaluation - Main:
Why did you choose to cook this meal?
The first thing that came to my mind about cooking a healthy meal was sushi. Sushi is also one of the most delishous and healthy meals there is, and it's also one of my favourite foods.
When I finally chose to stick with sushi immediently I thought I wanted to do prawns and salmon.
I chose these meats because I know that salmon is packed with proten. later I found out from research it also includes vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, Magnesium, calcium and many more.
Unfortunately salmon is high in salt I still chose to work with it because of its other amazing benefits and it's one of my family's favorite fish's.
I also chose banana prawns partly because of their price but mainly because after a little bit of research I saw all the benefits the fish had like; Magnesium, Zinc, iron, omega 3 and omega 6, and their also low in calories.
What part of the preparing of the cook was most challanging?
There wasn't too much that was tough throughout cooking the main meal but there was just a few small things I had a bit of difficulty with.
The most important part was for me to not burn the rice but also I couldn't take off the lid to see if it was burnt or cooked or raw so I had to trust the timer.
It was also worrying because I didn't know if the rice would get sticky and it would just turn out as normal rice. But the rice turned out great in the end and it was at the perfect consistency.
Another thing I was struggling with was the actual making of the sushi where I put everything together. Making sure it wouldn't fall apart at either ends. Making sure it wouldn't explode with food packed within the seaweed sheet. But I was surprised at how well I picked it up. And I was proud with the overall presentation of the individual rolls.
