My husband and I like to do a sushi date roughly every-other-Thursday, but lately we have been cutting back on spending so I decided to take matters into my own hands. Sushi is fun and easy to make.
Here is what you need:
2 cups of sushi rice
2.5 cups of water
2 ounces of rice vinegar
1 ounce of sugar
dash o salt
For fillings I used:
Combine rice and water in a rice steamer and cook.
While rice is cooking, heat rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small pan until sugar has dissolved (shouldn’t take more than a minute or so).
Once rice is done, pour vinegar mixture into rice pot and fold mixture in. Don’t stir…you will ruin your rice! Just gently fold with a wooden spoon.
Spread rice onto a flat surface and let cool ~30-45 minutes (or until room temp).
Grab your seaweed paper and lay a small handful of rice, like so….
Note the placement, the edges need to be free of rice so that they will stick after you roll it up. DON’T PUT TOO MUCH RICE…it goes a long way.
Start rolling! Keep everything as tight as possible
(totally doable without a bamboo roller, by the way)
Note: you will need a little water to dip your finger in to seal the seaweed when finished rolling.
Keep your knife wet. The rice will make it sticky and hard to cut.
Have a little sake and beer and you will be fine 😉
