1 c of sushi rice was a good amount to make about 4 full nori (which is enough for a party of 2). [Note to myself for the rice part: Rinse the rice 3-4 times. Add some more water to the rice amount (1 c rice = 1 1/4c water). I also add some salt then mix. In high heat, bring the rice to a boil, then lower the heat to low-medium. At this point i make sure the rice won't be dry, so i add more water if needed and stir a bit. I wrap a towel on the pan lid and cover the pan. Let it simmer for about 10 min, turn off the heat and let it rest for another 10 min. For the vinegar part: 1 1/3 tbsp of rice vinegar, 1 1/3 tsp sugar, and 4/9 tsp salt and microwave. The more vinegar the stickier the rice.] Now for the sushi part: I used imitation crab and american mayo and it tasted delicious. I cut the imitation crabs into pieces so the sushi's easier to cut. To get a full flavor off the meat, add in a good amount of salt. Also mixed in sesame seeds to the rice. I might try cream cheese instead of mayo / real crab meat or lobster / Japanese mayo next time. Overall, it was yummy. Thanks for sharing!
