Salmon Sushi

Salmon Sushi

Marinate your salmon for even better sushi!


Marinated salmon
As needed
Sliced onions
As needed
to taste
Sushi rice
as needed
Sesame seeds
to taste


1. Take your raw salmon and marinate it in equal parts salt and sugar. (I use about 2~3 kg salt and sugar combined, for every 1 kg salmon.) Thinly slice your onion and let it sit in a bath of ice water.
2. Let your salmon marinate for 6 hours. Wipe off the excess sugar and salt with a towel, and slice. Prepare your vinegared sushi rice, and place the salmon on top.
3. Squeeze just a bit of mayo on the tops of each piece of sushi. Squeeze out excess water from the onions. Place a pinch of the sliced onions on top of each small mound of mayo. Sprinkle on sesame seeds as desired to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

I think marinated salmon works a lot better as sushi than when it's simply raw and unseasoned.
