Are you an avid Sushi aficionado looking to expand your culinary skills? DIY Sushi rolls can make an impression. Here is how to make sushi from the comfort of your home kitchen.


  • 1 ⅓ cups water
  • ⅔ cup uncooked short-grain white rice
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 sheets nori seaweed sheets
  • ½ pound smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • ½ cucumber, peeled, cut into small strips
  • 2 tablespoons pickled ginger
  • Teriyaki sauce and wasabi for serving


  • Begin by cooking the rice. Bring water to a boil in a medium pot, stir in your chosen grain(s), reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until your grain(s) have become tender while all its liquid has been absorbed by them.
  • While your rice is cooking, combine rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl and set it aside to cool slightly before gently mixing into your finished product.
  • Heat the nori sheets until they become warm in a preheated oven, placing the baking sheet directly under it to catch any leakage of heat from within the building.
  • Spread one nori sheet on a bamboo sushi mat and, using wet hands, spread an even layer of rice across it.
  • Arrange slices of smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber and pickled ginger along the center of a rice-covered nori sheet in an attractive line.
  • Roll sushi using the bamboo mat with care, applying gentle pressure for a tight roll.
  • Use a sharp, wet knife to divide each roll into 4 or 6 pieces.
  • Serve homemade sushi rolls with teriyaki sauce and wasabi as dippers.
