My husband and I learned how to make sushi at home a couple of years ago. We debated about if we should take a class, but after finding out the price we decided to just wing it. We pretty much figured it out after watching a couple of tutorials on Youtube. I think you can learn how to do anything on Youtube and I mean ANYTHING!
You need some basic utensils and ingredients to get started.
A bamboo mat or sushi rolling mat
Plastic wrap (to wrap your mat in so the rice doesn't stick)
Nori (dried sheets of seaweed)
Rice wine vinegar
A sharp knife
Non metal bowl or pan (we line a baking dish with a silpat mat)
Pickled ginger (You can make your own or pick up a jar at the grocery store)
Sriracha (not a common sushi ingredient, but we use it to make sauces)
Whatever ingredients you are using for your roll
We have a couple of favorite rolls. Mine is smoked salmon, wasabi mayo, carrot, cucumber and avocado. I know, it is the "Americanized" form of sushi, it is delicious though. My husband likes raw tuna, sriracha mayo, avocado, carrot, cucumber and cream cheese in his roll.
Have you ever tried making sushi at home?
