  • Mix sugar, salt and rice vinegar in a small pan, and gently bring to a boil while stirring. The rice marinade is ready when the sugar and salt has dissolved.

  • Cool the marinade before use.

  • Prepare the rice according to the recipe sushi rice, or follow the instructions on the package.

  • Transfer the rice into a wide dish and gently fold in some of the marinade. Make sure the rice doesn’t get too moist, so add a little at a time.

  • Set the rice to cool in room temperature.

  • Start by cutting the salmon fillet in an even piece, and then cut it into 2-3 mm thin slices diagonally.

  • Mix water with a little rice vinegar, and lightly moist your hands to prevent the rice from sticking.

  • Take approx. 1 tbsp of sushi rice, and use your hand to gently make an oval ball shaped like a grain of rice.

  • Spread a little wasabi under a slice of salmon and place over a ball of rice. Carefully press along the sides and on top so the salmon and rice holds together.

Serve the sushi with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.
