Sushi may look and sound like it is a difficult dish to make, but it is actually quite simple once you get the hang of it. One of the real keys to making good sushi is making sure your rice has the right texture, it should be a little bit sticky but not so much that it forms large clumps. A drizzle of rice vinegar and a sprinkle of salt are all that is needed to season the rice, both of which complement the fish and other ingredients in a subtle way.
- Start by washing the rice in order to loosen the starch and prevent it from clumping when it is cooked. Place in a strainer and wash it with cold water.
- Cook and let it cool for 10 minutes.
- Once it is cool, add a drizzle of rice vinegar and some salt. Set aside.
