How To Make Sushi Without Fucking It Up

By Miss Ameribetch

It’s a well-known fact that betches love #72 sushi, but if you’re in a wife mode or just don’t feel like walking through icy snow for a group dinner, you can make it at home just as easily. Yes, we know there’s Seamless, but this is a little more fun. Step up your pregame with this recipe. Roll on, roll on.


You will need:

  • Sushi roller (like thisSmile
  • Rice
  • Sushi Vinegar
  • Nori sheets
  • Sliced Cucumber or Avocado
  • Sashimi (or whatever you want to sub this for)

Sushi rolls are easy to make and always all-you-can-eat when you make it yourself.  Decide what fish you want inside your sushi.  The easiest way to make sushi with sashimi is to buy fresh slices at a Japanese market. They come pre-cut and pre-selected so you know you’re getting a good batch. Make sure you’re getting it fresh and that you trust the source. If that’s not available to you, you can sub out the sashimi with crab meat, cooked shrimp, or even tempura. Take your pick.

Clean and cook the rice first. Depending on how much you’re making, you can adjust as necessary. 1-2 cups is plenty for one person, but we won't judge. Just kidding, we obviously will. Once the rice is done cooking, you can transfer it over into a mixing bowl. Season the rice with sushi vinegar. Start with a tablespoon for each cup of rice, but adjust as you prefer. You can also opt to add a dab of sugar and salt to the mix as well for more flavor.

Lay out your sushi roller on the countertop. Take a seaweed sheet and lay it flat on top. Spread the rice using a rice spatula or spoon onto the seaweed. Make sure the layer is not too thick or it will be difficult to roll up. Keep it tight, like your trainer says.

Next, lay your vegetables like cucumber or avocado onto the rice. If you’ve got sliced cucumber, lay it out flat across. Keep the vegetables tight together.  Add your sashimi (or whatever you’re using). Seriously, these are all just suggestions, you can put vegan tofu inside for all we care. Get creative, we know you can.

Roll up the sushi up using the bamboo roller to guide you. As you roll the seaweed onto the rice, pull back the bamboo so it doesn’t get rolled in, and press on the edges until you’ve got a long cylindrical roll. Kind of like a sushi burrito. Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into pieces about ¾” thick. At this point your sushi should look familiar, because you're done.

Garnish with ginger if you’re into it and serve with soy sauce. Feel free to add wasabi, or any other green you might want to clear your nose with. Hey, you’re eating at home, every table is VIP.
