Sushi tips

Which rice?
Unless you’re cooking for your Japanese friends, any white rice will do, but short-grain, sticky rice works best of all.

What filling?
avocado slices
canned pineapple chunks
canned tuna
carrot sticks
cream cheese (low-fat)
cucumber sticks
egg omelette cut in strips
ham
pickled gherkin
raw spinach leaves
smoked chicken
smoked salmon
tofu

I really hate seaweed!
If you don’t like nori, forget the bamboo mat, too. Simply form little spheres from the rice mixture, flatten them and put the filling on top, like an open sandwich.

Warning!

Rice sometimes contains spores of bacteria which cause food poisoning. The spores can survive the cooking, so if the rice is left standing at room temperature, the yucky spores will multiply. It’s best to store cooled rice at less than 4°C.

Awesome news: Your sushi will be safe on the day you make it. If you are storing it, remember to store it in the refrigerator.
