    E I made this tonight. I was great and my wife loved it. This is going to save me hundreds. She orders at sushi restaurants all the time and said it was just as good or better.I could not find masago. I will keep an eye out for asian food market or sushi guy as kroger said he would give me some next time it comes in. Very good recipe. DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
