How to make it

  • Cook white rice well in boiling salted water until soft, use extra water and drain afterwards if you have to.
  • Mix drained rice with vinegar.
  • On the bamboo rolling matt, place a sheet of roasted seaweed paper, shiny side down.
  • Using a spreading knife or a spoon, coat the nearest half of the paper to you with an even coating of rice. It's okay if the rice mixture is a bit liquidy.
  • At the very bottom, put a thin line of your fish of choice, and any condiments/additions you want to put with it.
  • Using the rolling mechanism, roll up the sushi as tightly as you can going from the bottom up, until you run out of rice. Now only the bare, dry seaweed paper should be showing. With either your fingers or a brush, use a little water you have put aside to moisten top edge of the paper. You may need to be liberal.
  • Finish rolling and seal it closed with the moistened end. Y'know, like a blunt. [=)
  • Leave it sitting there with the seam-side down to set for a few minutes before attempting to cut it.
  • When you're ready, use a very sharp serrated knife to slice the roll into 6-7 pieces. Serve with premium or sashimi soy sauce.
  • Yeah, it really is this easy. Try it!

    Hey Mal! I make sushi, too, and we had a full on Asian meal, recently...served it with Egg Drop Soup, Crab Rangoon, and fried rice. :) I used crab, cucumber and avocado in these, so basically a California Roll type. Made some with just bits of crab, but for others, I minced the crab and made a very simple "salad" with just a touch of mayo and onion. I then rolled them all in toasted black and regular sesame seeds. BUT, I always make mine "inside out"... I don't make them WELL, but that is how I make them. :) So, I'm adding my rating and my photo...thanks for another nice addition to the site!
