If there's one thing that's awesome, it's Sushi.

You can eat it any time, anywhere. It's really portable for taking to work for lunch, and it's great for having a plate or box of in the fridge, to just grab one as a snack. It's really filling, and has very little bad stuff in it, plus lots of fresh good stuff!

Here's my recipe for basic nori rolls.

You need:

2 cups of Sushi rice (sadly, you can't just use normal rice)
3 cups of water, plus a bit more
4-5 tbs rice vinegar
3tbs white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
a packet of nori sheets (look in the asian food section)
lots of yummy things to go in it!

Rinse the rice in lots of water, to get rid of the powdery stuff.
Cook the rice - I use 1 cup of rice to 1 1/2 cups of water, and a rice cooker, but do whatever suits you / whatever the packet recommends.
Mix the vinegar, sugar and salt together, then sprinkle it over the cooled rice, stir to combine and to cool completely.
Use a bamboo mat if you have one or baking paper or something if you don't, and lay out a sheet of nori, shiny side down.
Pile some of the rice into a line along one edge, then add some of your yummy fillings, like fish, vegetables cut into lengths, meat, chutneys, ever fruit.
Use the mat or paper to help you roll up the nori around the rice into a log.
Dip your finger in water, and use the water to seal the nori.
Using a very sharp serrated knife, slice the log into pieces about 2cm wide.
And that's it! Repeat until you've used all your ingredients, and store it in the fridge.

Then enjoy your yummy sushi!!!
