Thank you guys for the education of sushi, but I'm still trying to find a site that will teach me the proper way to roll it.

Chile Chef, its an extremely simple thing to do. Buy a sudare mat (or use waxed paper), place your sheet of nori on this. Spread your cooked sushi rice all the way to the left and right edges but leave about 1/4 inch at the edge closest to you and about 1/2 inch at the far edge. Spread your fillings on top and roll tightly. Use a sharp knife to cut the rolls and serve on a pretty plate with ginger, wasabi and soy sauce.

What Alix said. Your first rolls may be a little wonky, but it really is pretty easy. And you can put whatever you want in them.

Try this site--I think it has all you need!

Thanks guys & girls, Hey I've tried raw Ahi Tuna and I've purchased 2 8oz steaks chucks for sushi.

The fish monger was so nice, He gave me about an oz of raw ahi tuna to try while he gave me his secrete for making the rice it self.

Wow, I actually have my own fish monger now, that's very cool.

LOL, it's not like that yet, our freindship just started. I got to give it time and I don't want to mess it up with any stupid promises.


However next week he is going to be making me no salt to low salt sushi, We've probably talked about 25-35 minutes about my low sodium diet, so he also suggested I eat ahi tuna for a sushi fish since it only has 10 sodium per oz.

He was very cool and he told me to look for rice wine vingar that has zero sodium for the rolling portion of the sushi rolls.

Next week I'll go ahead and pick up some fresh sushi rolls.

CC the rice wine vinegar is to blend with your rice. You use about 1 tbsp/cup of rice each of sugar and rice wine vinegar in your rice and then use a flat bladed paddle to stir your rice til it is shiny.
