How to… Sushi Category: Recipes

We are sort-of on a health kick at the moment. Most days at work last week I had sushi for lunch, so we decided it was time to try & replicate some at home….

how to make sushi

Equipment & Ingredients

  • Rolling Mat
  • Sushi Rice
  • Nori – the seaweed wrap
  • Rice vinegar/seasoning
  • Pickled, Sliced Ginger
  • Soy Sauce
  • Fillings – we started off tame & used cucumber, red pepper and spring onion (& a little green chilli in some)


Cook rice as instructions on the packet, add rice vinegar & leave to cool for 30 minutes. Then…

  1. Place Nori rough side up on rolling mat & place rice onto two thirds of it
  2. Add filling of your choice then dampen the last third of the nori wih a little water
  3. Carefully roll sushi using mat – keep a tight hold of the roll
  4. Slice with a sharp knife ito slices about 1″ thick
  5. Serve with soy sauce and ginger

Next time we need better fillings as these were a little bit bland. I have avocado and tuna in mind. Any more suggestions would be very welcome!

Thanks everyone. I am looking forward to trying it again with some more exciting fillings!

Your sushi looks delicious! I like to have it with wasabi as well. As for alternative fillings, if you can get hold of any sashimi grade tune or salmon, then just that is great. If not, searing the tuna briefly so that it’s still ver red in the middle works well too.
