Categories: Blogger's Bout

For amateur chefs, sushi might seem an insurmountable endeavor -- like the perfect puffy cheese soufflé or meringue-wrapped baked Alaska.

But surprisingly, it's not as difficult as it might seem, and with a few simple tools, even the most bumbling of kitchen klutzes can pull off some tasty rolls.

Trust me. I'm no cook. If I can do it, so can you. And no, you don't need a rice cooker. Promise.

First off, tools of the trade.

Basic requirements include:
  • Sushi rice
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Bamboo mat (plastic wrap will also suffice)
  • Nori (seaweed)

Then, as far as fillings, it's chef's choice. Popular options include tuna, crab, shrimp, cucumber, avocado, mango, scallions, etc., plus the obvious accouterments: soy sauce, wasabi, and mayo.

A sharp knife is a must.
