Step 1: Place a sheet of nori on a sushi mat.
Step 2: Pat an even layer of sushi rice onto the nori. The rice should hang a little over the edges of the nori.
Step 2 ½: Go back to Step 1 and put gloves on or get a damp towel to dab your fingers. Trust me, rice was everywhere!
Step 3: Add a row of fresh, sushi-grade ahi and cucumber sticks. Spicy people: add some Sriracha.
Step 4: Start rolling. Pull the sushi mat towards you to get it going. Once it’s rolled over,
pull the mat away from you while tucking the roll in tighter.
Step 5: Cut in half. Clean the knife. Cut in half again. Clean the knife. Cut in half again. (That’s really how they do it!)
Step 6: Plate like a pro with ginger and wasabi.
Pro tip: hang a GoPro above your head for an aerial view. Turn on hyperlapse to evoke chaos.
Stop in for some sushi that’s actually made by a professional chef – like Doug!
For every sushi roll ordered during the month of September, a bowl of rice will be donated to those in need, thanks to our friends at USA Rice and Feeding America.
