Have you ever wanted to learn how to make sushi at home? Making your own sushi can be so much fun! You get to create your own rolls, add any type of filling, topping and sauce. With my step-by-step video tutorial, I’ll show you just how easy it is to make! Plus, tips for filling, cutting and serving!
The most important crucial part of sushi, whether at home or in a restaurant, is the seafood: fish, crab, scallops, etc. It’s very important to buy and use only the freshest, sushi-grade seafood for taste and for food-safety reasons. I get my sushi-grade fish from a Japanese supermarket and a local fish market that delivers to sushi restaurants across town. If you’re not sure about the quality, always ask! The second part is the sushi. You’ll need sushi-grade rice, which is typically short grain and when cooked, it’s sticky and holds the roll together.
The next step in making sushi are the tools. You’ll need just a few simple tools like a bamboo rolling mat and a sharp knife to cut your fish and rolls. Check out Amazon for the rolling mats – they’re super cheap! Once you have your tools, just pick your fillings! And this is the best part! I love to experiment and try different combinations of fillings all the time. I have more on fillings in video recipe and down below in the recipe box! Here are a few of my favorite combinations:
(Tuna, Salmon, cream cheese, tobiko, avocado; topped with salmon, eel sauce, sweet mayo, tobiko, green onions)
(Cooked lobster with cream cheese, raw bay scallops; topped with tuna, sweet mayo, eel sauce and a touch of sriracha sauce)
(Tuna, sriracha sauce or spicy mayo, asparagus, cream cheese; tempura deep-fried roll topped with spicy mayo, black tobiko, green onions, eel sauce)
