CHARLOTTE, NC (Kathleen Purvis/Charlotte Observer) - Charlotte Panthers coach Ron Rivera has more on his plate than a new team owner and and a season opener in 68 days.
He also has sushi. Very fancy sushi, with softshell crab, kani (made from crab) and cucumber, wrapped in avocado, topped with eel sauce and spicy mayonnaise and served with a side of poke (more raw fish) and avocado.
Rivera and his wife, Stephanie, created the roll to raise money for organizations that support pet adoption after the death of their own two dogs. The Riveras worked with Cowfish sushi chef Rifali Almunir to pick the ingredients.
