Sushi meshi, or sushi rice, is made by combining freshly cooked rice with vinegar, sugar, and salt.
Sushi neta refers to the sushi toppings, mostly commonly sashimi, seafood, and egg for nigiri sushi. Depending on the ingredients, different preparations are needed.
Nothing compares to freshly grated wasabi from the wasabi rhizome. (Within minutes, wasabi begins losing its nuanced flavor!)
Using wetted hands and fingers, shape the rice into rectangular or oval blocks.
Now that the rice, sushi neta, and wasabi are prepared, you can assemble your nigiri sushi! The wasabi is often used to help stick the toppings to the rice.
Now you can dig in with a little soy sauce and wasabi!
Cooked rice is combined with vinegar, sugar, and salt to create the distinct flavor of sushi meshi (sushi rice).
There are a wide array of possibilities when it comes to ingredients for maki sushi. Sashimi, seafood, egg, and both fresh and pickled vegetables are more traditional options.
To start assembling your roll, you'll have to spread a layer of rice on a sheet of nori (seaweed).
Then, the sushi ingredients are added in the middle on top of the rice.
This can be tricky, but gets easier as you get the hang of it! Using a wooden sushi mat, roll up the seaweed and fillings into a cylinder.
All that's left is slicing up the elongated roll into the familiar, smaller sushi rolls. A moistened knife will help with clean cuts.
Now you can dig in with a little soy sauce and wasabi!
Combine cooked rice with vinegar, sugar, and salt in order to make sushi rice.
You can use a variety of ingredients when making temari sushi. Fish, seafood, meat, and vegetables, both raw and cooked, are all common. It's recommended to thinly slice your toppings for the best results.
After first placing the topping(s) on a sheet of plastic wrap, add a little wasabi (if you'd like) and a small amount of rice.
Wrap and twist the plastic wrap around the ingredients to form a perfect sphere. With the plastic wrap to guide you and keep your hands clean, it won't be too difficult to make an evenly-shaped ball!
Your first temari sushi is done! Experiment with mixing and layering different colors and textures of ingredients for an attractive temari sushi set.
To make a batch of sushi rice, add vinegar, sugar, and salt to cooked rice.
Chirashi sushi toppings vary widely by region and taste in Japan. Raw fish, egg, cooked and uncooked seafood and vegetables, and other colorful garnishes are popular options.
Ingredients can be mixed in directly with the sushi rice, placed on top, or a combination of the two. Add colorful garnishes at the end to give your chirashi sushi bowl an attractive appearance.
With your sushi rice and ingredients now all together, your chirashi sushi is ready to be enjoyed!
Fold vinegar, salt, and sugar into cooked rice to make sweet sushi rice.
Aburaage is deep-fried tofu that forms the outside pockets of inari sushi. In order to prepare it, you'll simmer the inari in a broth typically made of dashi, sugar, and soy sauce.
Using your hands, mold cylindrical balls of sushi rice.
Pack the rice balls into the aburaage pouches, sealing them as you finish. Lastly, if you'd like, sprinkle on black sesame seeds as a garnish.
Enjoy your simple and sweet inari sushi treat!
Together, cooked rice, vinegar, sugar, and salt make up the foundation of sushi rice.
Pickled fish and vegetables are popular toppings for oshi sushi. They'll need to be cut in a way that they fit in the oshibako – the wooden frame that the oshi sushi is pressed in.
With hands and oshibako moistened with vinegar water, you're ready to assemble your oshi sushi! Start with adding layer of your sushi topping to the base of the oshibako, then add rice on top.
In order to achieve the distinct pressed style of oshi sushi, you'll place the top press of the oshibako on top of the rice and push down firmly.
Slide the resulting long rectangular strip out of the oshibako. With the ingredients on top, slice into bite-sized pieces of sushi.
Time to eat your tasty oshi sushi!
