Show how to make sushi

There are many different ways that sushi can be made, but the rice is what has to be made perfectly. There is only one way to make sushi rice. You may use the toppings of your choice, just make sure it is vegetables that don’t have to be cooked otherwise you should cook it before you start making your sushi. The other ingredients you can choose are crab, shrimp, mussels or any other seafood. This should also be precooked.

To make the perfect sushi rice this is what you will need:

3 cups of cold water
3 cups of short-grain rice
1/2 a cup of white sugar
1/2 a cup of rice vinegar
1 teaspoon of salt

First you have to make sure the rice is clean. Do this by washing it 3 times or until the water is running clear. You should never use anything to clean the rice but water and you should not use hot water when doing so. Put 3 cups of water into a rice cooker and add your rice. The rice will take approximately 45 minutes to cook. While the rice is busy, put the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a saucepan on low heat and stir continuously using a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved completely. When the sugar has dissolved take the pan off the heat and allow it to cool. When the rice is done do the same, take it off the heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Put the rice into a large bowl and pour the vinegar mix over the rice evenly and mix. When mixing the rice be careful not to break the rice, mix it gently in a slicing motion and do not push the rice to the bottom of the bowl with the wooden spoon, this will squash the rice.

Your sushi rice is now ready. Now take your chosen toppings and add it to the rice. The toppings should be cut into small pieces or sliced into stripes. If your vegetables are carrots, spinach, cucumber and those kinds of veggies, they should be sliced into stripes where as veggies such as mushrooms, potatoes and onions, they should be cut into pieces. The seafood you are using should also be cut into stripes. Not too small but also not to big, approximately 1″ will be fine.

Put the vegetables and seafood on a bed of rice, serve and enjoy.
