When I think Frankenstein's monster I think Halloween. Give this guy a try this year they are the cutest! These rolls are so fun to make and even more tasty. I love getting creative with the different faces I can make. You can make half as Frankenstein's monster and half plain, with the nori on the outside, to cut your prep time down. Mixed up on the plate the effect looks great. Keeping this fun little appetizer veggie is a super plus. Not only do you not need to worry about raw fish sitting on a counter all night, but it keeps things veg-friendly for all of your guests.
