Making Sushi at Home

In Japan, making sushi at home is nothing special. It is economical and gives the dinner table a more pleasant atmosphere. For its ease, the most common sushi that is made at home is the hand roll or temaki sushi. All the prepared ingredients are arranged on the table, so everyone has access to them. The fish and nori are cut into favorable sizes and the sushi rice is placed in a bowl. The hand rolls are individually made by the people at the table each time they are eaten, and repeated during the whole dinner. The rolls are wrapped and eaten immediately so the nori stays crisp.

It is less common for nigiri to be made at home. As for rolls, some families with a member with average skills may make them, but the the majority of families make hand roll sushi, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make other types of sushi. You can learn to create rolls or nigiri in no time, and entertain your guests, or enjoy for yourself.

Making sushi at home is fun and economical as well. It is a more casual way of eating sushi. The shape and appearance, or presentation of the sushi itself is of no matter, but care should be taken to obtain the best sashimi and to perfectly cook the sushi rice. Nothing is more important than the ingredients, since little or no modifications are made to them. It would be good practice to get to know your ingredients for sushi, and try to use the best ones available. After getting used to making sushi rice, you should be able to make good tasting hand rolls, and then move on to the other styles. It's very easy, so don't hesitate!
