Classic Salmon Nigiri Sushi Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sushi rice
  • 1½ cups (370 ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3 oz (90 g) skinless salmon fillets

Method

Step 1

In a sieve, rinse sushi rice thoroughly under fresh cold water till water comes clear. Transfer rinsed rice to a large saucepan. Add water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover saucepan, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Remove cooked rice from the heat and set aside for 15-20 minutes. Resist the temptation to remove the cover to sneak a peek-it is important to keep the steam and heat inside the pan.

Step 3

In a mixing bowl, combine rice wine vinegar, salt, and sugar. Mix well.

Step 4

Gently transfer rice to a large bowl and fold in vinegar mixture. Set aside.

Step 5

Cut salmon fillets across the grain into thin slices. Spoon tablespoon of cooked rice into moistened hands. Roll into a ball.

Step 6

Wrap the slice of salmon over rice and arrange on a serving platter. Gently press nigiri onto the platter.

Step 7

Repeat with remaining sushi rice and salmon. Serve salmon nigiri sushi immediately.
