Master the Art of Making Sushi: A Step-by-Step Guide

How to make sushi

Making sushi requires several steps and some practice to achieve the perfect roll. Here is a basic recipe and steps to make sushi at home:


  • Sushi rice
  • Sushi vinegar
  • Nori sheets
  • Sliced fish or other fillings of your choice (such as avocado, cucumber, or cooked shrimp)


  • Rinse the sushi rice in cold water until the water runs clear.
  • Cook the sushi rice according to the package instructions, adding the sushi vinegar to the rice while it's still hot. Mix well and let cool.
  • Lay a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat, shiny side down.
  • Wet your hands with water and take a handful of sushi rice. Spread the rice evenly over the nori sheet, leaving a 1-inch border at the top edge.
  • Arrange the fillings in a line across the middle of the rice.
  • Lift the bottom edge of the sushi mat and roll it over the filling, tucking it in tightly.
  • Continue rolling the sushi mat away from you, using the mat to shape the roll.
  • When the roll is complete, use a sharp knife to slice it into pieces.


  • Dip your hands in water before handling the rice to prevent it from sticking.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the sushi to avoid squishing the roll.
  • Serve the sushi with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger.
