Imagine how good life is going to be if you can have a homemade sushi roll as a snack every single day!!! I love sushi but the place I live in Melbourne does not have any decent place to have sushi. So it got me thinking, how many other people must be having the same problem as me?
How do you make sushi at home?
The answer is many. I make simply the easiest sushi at home. Many people are daunted at the fact that they cannot make sushi at home. Well, let me break to you guys, it’s actually mind-bogglingly easy!!! I don’t use a bamboo mat to roll my sushi; you only need a few ingredients to make this amazing dish.
I will be very honest we cannot compare restaurant-quality sushi to homemade sushi but spending $50 on sushi becomes quite challenging, if I can make sushi for $10, hey why not!!! It surely satisfies my cravings.

If you decide to put raw fish to your sushi, make sure to buy sashimi grade, any fishmonger will have this, but not in supermarkets.
What do you put inside sushi?

Sushi dipping sauces
You cannot eat sushi without soy sauce, make sure you buy a good quality premium soy sauce, it makes all the difference
You can also add wasabi and pickled ginger into the soy mixture, this will add a bit of punch and oomph.

- Add a layer of sushi rice on top of the nori sheet and flatten it using your fingers
- Add in your fillings on the middle of the sheet
