'Mock' Sushi

This recipe is perfect when you're strapped for time, and kids will think you're super fancy for serving something sushi-like for dinner (and have a blast building their own handrolls). Just grab your favorite vegetables (cucumbers and asparagus work well), some steamed shrimp, and soy sauce to fix it all up.
