How to Make Sushi

Dear Aspiring Chef,

Rinse the rice! That’s one of the secrets to the perfect sushi rice. Rinsing it helps remove some of the starch. Master sushi chefs might even rinse their rice several times. But this class is all about making sushi in the easiest way we can. Remember, we aren’t looking for perfection; we’re looking for perfectly delicious!

You might think sushi is complicated, but it’s really easy once you get the basics. You do need a bamboo roller (Don’t worry—I’ll show you how to use it!), but otherwise, sushi is versatile enough that you can’t really go wrong. And it can be a cheap meal to make at home, too.

You don’t have to stick to fish, either, with sushi. Cucumbers, carrots, scallions, radishes, avocado… the list of what you can make is almost endless. And you can do a lot of your prep ahead of time, so when it’s time to roll the sushi, you’ll be ready to go.

In this class, I’ll show you everything you need to start making sushi, from selecting and slicing the vegetables to preparing the rice, and even two different ways to roll your sushi. It’s all in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s How to Make Sushi streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry!

How to Make Sushi

The class starts with my favorite: the California Roll! Prepping your vegetables is really the key to making this easy. Slice the cucumber into thin matchsticks, and thinly slice your avocado. Once that’s done and your rice is ready (and cool), we’re ready to roll!

I’m using imitation crab meat for this roll. Crab is delicious, but this works well in a sushi roll. Don’t be afraid, though; imitation crab is real fish—pollock, in this case—so it tastes great.

Start by putting your nori (edible seaweed) on your bamboo roller, then spread the rice evenly. For this roll, we’re going to have the rice on the outside. Flip your nori over so the rice side is face down. Add slices of cucumber, avocado, and your crab. Then simply roll your sushi over once, press down, then roll a second time. Remove the roll from the matt, remove the extra seaweed, and slice your roll into six or eight pieces.

Your first few rolls might be a bit messy, but once you get the hang of it, it’s really easy, so just keep going and you’ll get it. Serve your rolls with soy sauce and extra wasabi for a tasty experience.

You can have a delicious sushi dinner at home. To find out how to get started, watch How to Make Sushi right now—one of many classes in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Library.

The How to Make Sushi class includes six total recipes. You’ll get the complete instructions, full-color pictures for each recipe, and plenty of tips from my own experience making sushi. In addition to the California Roll recipe, you’ll get:

  • Sushi Rice—There’s a little more to making sushi rice than there is with a typical long-grain rice. That doesn’t mean it’s hard though. I’ll show you how to make a sushi rice that’s perfect for making your own sushi at home.
  • Sweet Potato Roll—Mashed sweet potato with a little salt and pepper is a nice alternative to a fish roll. Some radish and avocado goes well with this one.
  • Salmon Sashimi—This is about as easy as it gets. Roll up a small handful of rice in your hand, and lay your sashimi-grade salmon right on top. I like to add a layer of wasabi between the rice and the fish for a little spice!

To round out your How to Make Sushi class, you’ll get two more delicious sushi recipes.

  • Spicy Tuna Roll—Chop the sashimi-grade tuna and mix it with mayonnaise and chili oil (not too much!). That’s all there is to this. Make your roll, slice, and enjoy!
  • Shrimp Tempura—I’ll show you how to make your tempura batter, including the secret to a light, crunchy coating. You can actually use the tempura batter for vegetables, too. Dip the shrimp into the batter, then cook it in hot oil until it’s done. Enjoy as is, dip it in a mayonnaise sauce, or use it in a sushi roll.

Along with your video class, you’ll get the accompanying digital Cookbook, all the class’s recipes and instructions in written form, and full-color pictures of each roll—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.
