Making Sushi Rice is one of the most important steps when making sushi.
To make Sushi Rice, you need to add Sushi Vinegar to cooked rice.
So, what exactly is Sushi Vinegar?
A standard recipe calls for Rice Vinegar, Sugar and Salt.
We use Marukan Organic Rice vinegar, Organic Cane Sugar, and Sea Salt.
The ratio we use is 5:3:1 (Rice Vinegar:Sugar:Salt).
If you want to purchase one, Sushi Vinegar is available at many Japanese/Asian Grocery Stores, including Mitsuwa

This will kill any practises that come with raw salmon
3. Thaw in your fridge
Sushi Rice Use "Short" grain rice, or rice labeled as "Sushi" Rice such as Lundberg Farm Rice.
To cook rice, wash rice in water a couple of times. Drain water, put it in a rice cooker, then add water - the rice:water ratio is 1:1.1. (I used "Lundberg" Organic Sushi Rice - available at Whole Foods Market) Let it sit for at least fifteen minutes in summer and up to thirty minutes in winter before cooking rice. This helps the rice cook better and brings out sweetness from the

Traditional Sushi restaurants in Tokyo use no sugar, just rice vinegar and salt only. At your local supermarket (Whole Foods or Asian Market), you m
This recipe came to me when I was working at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles. One day, I noticed that there was an unopened bottle of truffle oil. I’ve never used truffle oil before, so I thought the way to using it. I opened the bottle and then came a very strong and nice aroma of white truffle. Then, I thought it would go well with white fish like Tai. The aroma is wonderful and it's a perfect match with snapper. It's been a constant hit with our clients. They all told me
