Assortment of Sushi


Carlos and I am a huge fan of sushi. Well, basically all types of Japanese food. We can eat them every day. Eating Japanese food at the restaurant is pretty costly so I will try to prepare them at home once a while if time permits. One of the things I like to make is sushi. I will make assortment Nigiri sushi, California rolls and maki rolls.


Good sushi starts with perfectly cooked rice. Soft and mushy rice is a big no no. I know some people like brown rice for health reasons but white rice has the requisite stickiness that holds together and they are great to make sushi.




I used the recipe of sushi rice from Just One Cookbook. You can refer to the link here . There are step by step instructions there.

As for the filling and topping I used fresh salmon, unagi, tamagoyaki, crab meat and etc. You can basically put anything you wish in it.
