How to make sushi

Hi everyone today ill be telling you how to make some simple sushi





Ingredients you will need

For the rice
  • 300g sushi rice
  • 100ml rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. golden caster sugar
For the Japanese mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
For the sushi
  • 25g bag nori (seaweed) sheets
  • choose from the following fillings: cucumber strips, smoked salmon, white crabmeat, canned tuna, red pepper avocado, spring onion

step 1-First cook your sushi rice until it boils and when the rice absorbs all the water and add in the rice wine vinegar and the golden caster sugar, Then then put it in a sieve and put cold water over the rice

Step 2-Then spread out the rice on a tray and leave to cool.

Step 3-Lay a nori sheet on the mat or on some cling film. Dip your hands in the vinegared water, then pat handfuls of rice on top in a 1cm thick layer, leaving the furthest edge from you clear.

Step 4-Use a spoon to spread out a thin layer of mayonnaise down the middle of the rice.

Step 5-next top the line of mayonnaise with a line of their favourite fillings-here I've used smoke salmon and cucumber.

Step 6-Lift the edge of the mat or the cling film over the rice, applying a little pressure to keep everything in a tight roll.

Step 7-When you get to the edge without any rice, brush with a little water and continue to roll into a tight roll.

Step 8-roll tightly in cling film then cut the sushi into thick slices, then unravel the cling film.
