First you'll need a rolling bamboo sushi roller or whatever it is called



sushi seasoning


Plus anything you want to put in the middle (salmon, tuna, avocado, caviar, etc; anything you like. Just be sure it's fresh)

For salmon or any other raw-eatable fish, I recommend, if you have no source of fresh fish, to buy smoked. They're not as good as the fresh ones, but they're still tasty

I recommend using a rice cooker to be able to measure how much water you should put. For sushi, the rice has to be sticky, so what you want to do is to put more water than the usual amount approx. 1/8 more or so.

When the rice is finish cooking wait about 10-18 min to let it cook a bit more.

After that put it in a bowl and mix it with sushi seasoning. (You can make your own sushi seasoning by mixing water,vinegar,sugar and bit of salt.)

Mix well while it's hot...

Now when it's cooled enough you can start forming the sushi by using the roller and the seaweed.

BUT FIRST OF ALL wash your hands!

Then prepare a bowl of vinegar mixed with water to wet your hands a bit while forming the sushi, the rice is so sticky you'l need water to get rid of them.

I'm avoiding explaining how it is rolled, because I'm not very good at it. There are instructional videos on a popular video website that can demonstrate this quite well step-by-step -on video.
