Nigiri Sushi At Home

This was even easier to make than I thought! It seemed difficult to make nigiri sushi, but I think I got it right!

Ingredients: About 26 pieces

White rice
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360 ml)
For sushi vinegar
Vinegar
3 1/2 tablespoons
Sugar
2 tablespoons
Salt
1 1/2 teaspoons
Toppings:
Tuna, yellowtail, salmon, squid, sweet shrimp, scallops
About 26 pieces
Wasabi
to taste
Egg carton
for 10 eggs

Steps

1. Rinse the rice and place in a sieve. When making the rice, use a little less water than you usually do. Once cooked, mix together with the sushi vinegar and let cool.
2. This is a pack of store-bought sashimi.
3. Wet the egg carton and put a little more than 1 tablespoon of sushi rice into each of the egg molds and shake it up a bit to shape the rice.
4. Make 26 small riice balls. Adjust the shapes into ovals.
5. Top the rice from Step 4 with wasabi, then place on the seafood toppings. Press the topping onto the sushi without being too firm or too gentle.
6. Transfer to a plate and enjoy!

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to eat some nigiri sushi! I made this at my family's request. If you use an empty egg carton as a "mold" for your rice, it's surprisingly simple to make everything the same size!
