How to make it

  • Transfer rice to heavy medium saucepan. Add 1 1/4 cups fresh cold water and kelp to pan. Cover and let soak 30 minutes.
  • Uncover, discard kelp and bring mixture to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Let stand covered 15 minutes.
  • Transfer rice to large glass bowl.
  • Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in small saucepan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.

  • Whisk egg, salt and 1 teaspoon mirin in small bowl to blend.
  • Spray 9-inch-diameter nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. Heat skillet over medium-low heat.

    I love this style you have presented although I never had sushi served to me this way. While the rice is soaking you have plenty of time to prep all the rest of the ingredients. all the detailed work like those egg pancakes will be worth it when it comes time to assemble the dish. That pickled ginger adds that interesting subtle bite that surprises you with delight.
    five forks and a smile:)

    For those who say they would never attempt this, here's a huge time saving tip: go to a local sushi bar and just buy a couple side orders of sushi rice to go :-)
