Western style sushi

  • 3 C sticky rice – uncooked
  • 3 C water
  • ½ C rice vinegar
  • ½ C granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

  1. Wash and rinse the rice thoroughly. Put the rice and water in a medium to large saucepan, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until rice is done.
  2. Use a small saucepan to mix the sugar, rice vinegar and salt. Heat until sugar is melted and remove from the heat. Cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly mix the cooked rice and the cooled vinegar mixture.
  4. Allow the rice to cool before using to make sushi dishes.
  5. An easy sushi dish that everyone likes is shrimp sushi. Buy prawns (one for each piece of sushi). Skewer the prawns with toothpicks from tail to head. (This will keep them flat). Boil in salted water for three minutes and then immerse in ice water to stop the cooking action. Butterfly the shrimp.
  6. Take about 1 ½ TBS of sushi rice and make a ‘brick’ about two inches long. Get a cooked and butterflied prawn; rub a hint of wasabi on the underside and then place on the sushi ‘brick’.

  1. You are really gross. Stealing from others and taking credit for their work. Pitiful!!! You stole this recipe and photo from Coconuts and Cardamom.
