Nigirizushi with Salmon How to make Sushi

Step 1: You will need (for one person):
— 1.5–2 oz/45—60 g prepared sushi rice,
— 2–3 oz/60—80 g raw salmon,
— wasabi to taste

Step 2: Take a cutting board, a sharp knife and a bowl of clean water.

Step 3: Slice the salmon fillet about 1/4″ thick. Cut slantwise against the grain of the fish.

Step 4: Take a slice of salmon and spread some wasabi on it.

Step 5: With your other hand, take 2-3 tsp. rice and press it into a clump.

Step 6: Place the rice clump on top of the fish and press them together. Wash your hand in the bowl after handling the rice.

Step 7: With your index finger, make a small pit in the rice clump. This will help the fish and rice hold together firmly.

Step 8: Gently squeeze the sushi and roll it over in your hands to shape it. However, keep in mind that it’s not good to handle raw fish for too long.

Step 9: Make three such pieces for one person.

Step 10: Serve with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.
