    Sushi is a hands-on dish -- and a little hard to explain in print.
    Youtube probably has lots of videos on the best techniques.

    Lots of people start with what is called a California roll.
    But you can make all sorts of combos -- adding and/or leaving out
    ingredients that you love or that don't appeal.

    The key to sushi is getting the darn thing rolled up. icon_smile.gif icon_wink.gif

    It's not really difficult but you'll need a bit of practice to keep the innards in! icon_smile.gif

    What you find in Chinese restaurants and even some fast-food Japanese restaurants is American-style sushi, not authentic sushi.

    If you want the real thing, you must use specific ingredients, and they can easily be found in your Asian section of the supermarket or an Asian grocery store.

    Try this for sushi.

    There are many web sites that show how to make sushi. I've been making sushi since I can crawl LOL literally, but it's hard to write about it. There are all kinds of sushi and ones featuring nigiri or fish on top takes decades of hands on experience as shown by the movie Jiro Loves Sushi. It's an art form not taken very lightly in Japan. However, for regular home cooks, you can certainly make makizushi - the rolled kind with some practice.

    Here is a very good youtube for making makizushi. I love Cooking with the Dog chef - she's quite good. Check it it out!
