This recipe for sushi is perfect! I had some doubts that it'd come out anything like the kind I've bought before, but after adding the rice vinegar/sugar mixture to the rice, and I caught a wiff of the authentic sushi roll smell, OH! I could hardly believe it. :D I made these with california style ingredients: a slice of fake crab, cucumber, and avocado. Then I made the inside-out version, using sesame seeds to keep the rice on the outside from sticking too much. I even chopped up a fake crab chunk into tiny bits, mixed in 1.5 tbsp mayo (miracle whip, really) and a dab of wasabi, used it with the avocado strips, and made another set of inside-out rolls. Delicious! Tastes like the stuff I pay $7+ for at the grocery store or restaurants, but at a major fraction of the cost. Just so you know, I actually used long grain rice (its what I already had in the cupboard) and it worked out very well. I suggest you rinse the rice several times until the water is no longer white or super cloudy. Keep your fingers and knife dipped in water often to keep the rice from sticking. Roll the sushi nice and tight so the insides don't fall out, especially if you do an inside-out roll. AND I didn't use a bamboo mat- large ziplock bags work great, you'll be surprised. For first-timers, just so you know, you roll the sushi with the bag/mat like an army tank's tread- don't roll it into the sushi! ;)
