Sushi is an articulate and delicious art, and your homemade sushi prices certainly don’t need to reflect those of the restaurant rolls. In this video, we will learn how to make “1-dollar-sushi,” so let’s follow along and make a delicious sushi roll!
The biggest component of your sushi is your rice. Invest in a rice cooker and your future sushi rolls will thank you.
Use equal parts rice and water to get the perfect sticky rice that is still workable onto your roll. Next, pick out your ingredients. Carrots and cucumbers are the cheapest and most popular additions. Depending on your budget, you can go for smoked salmon or any sashimi grade tuna. Make some spicy mayo with mayo, sriracha, shallots, and sesame seeds. Roll it all up in some nori and you have yourself a $1 sushi hand roll!
