Homemade sushi, while time-consuming, is so much fun to make! You can customize exactly what you want, and it makes a great date night idea!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 3 rolls
- 2 cups sushi rice
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp kosher salt
Thoroughly rinse the rice by putting it in a bowl (or the bowl of the rice steamer) and filling with water enough to completely cover the rice
Use your hands to stir the rice around until the water is murky
Use a strainer (or the lid of your steamer) to drain the water
Continue doing this until the water comes out clear (usually 3-4 times)
Create Rice Mixture
While rice is cooking, in a large bowl combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt
Microwave mixture on high for 30 seconds then stir to combine
Once the rice is finished cooking and slightly cooled, use the rice paddle to remove rice from the steamer to a large mixing bowl. DON'T scrape rice from bottom and sides as this rice is usually hard and/or burned and doesn't work well for sushi.
Carefully fold vinegar mixture into rice
This is enough to make about 2-3 sushi rolls. We were cooking for 6 people and used 6 cups of rice and still ended up with some leftover sushi. Note: Nutrition is calculated for sushi rice and does not include fillings.
