Ingredients

For sushi rice

  • 1 cup sushi rice Japanese short grain rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sushi vinegar or mixing 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt

Nori sushi rolls:

  • Fillings such as avocado, cucumber, or cooked sweet potatoes (other fillings options include shrimp, salmon, pickled vegetables etc.)
  • 3 sheets nori seaweed

Instructions

Make the sushi rice

  • Wash the rice with cold water until the water runs clear. Add it to the rice maker together with water. Cook according to the instruction.
  • Once cooked, transfer the hot rice to a large bowl and let it cool down slightly. When it’s still very warm, stir in the sushi vinegar (the mixture of rice vinegar, sugar, and salt).

Make nori sushi rolls

  • Lay out the bamboo mat with an optional piece of plastic wrap on top (this will make clean up easier).
  • Cut off 1/3 of the seaweed. Then place the rest of the nori sheet on top of the bamboo, shinning side facing down.
  • Take about 3/4 cup of cooked rice and evenly spread over nori while leaving 1/2 inch at the top of the sheet. (You can dip your hand in Tezu vinegar water* to prevent sticking.)
  • Place the fillings on top of the rice.
  • Place the thumbs underneath the bamboo mat and lift the edge up and over the filling.
  • Roll the bamboo mat away from you and press the rice and filling together.

Notes

  • * Tezu water for dipping hands: Mix together 1/4 cup water and 2 teaspoon rice vinegar.
