How to Make Sushi

by Claire S

We all love sushi, so here is my take on it. Really easy to make home-made sushi, with a simple and tasty chicken marinade for extra flavour. Hope you all enjoy! :)


  • 4 Cups Sushi rice
  • 2 Tablespoons Caster sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Tomato sauce
  • Garlic
  • Cooked Chicken (or could use salmon or tuna)
  • Avocado
  • Carrot
  • Red pepper
  • Any other vegetables, like cucumber
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Cook the sushi rice

    Step 2

    Get together all your ingredients

    Step 3

    Measure out the caster sugar and rice vinegar and add to the cooked rice. Here you can dissolve the sugar in the vinegar but I just add it to the hot rice and it works fine.

    Step 4

    Crush or chop the garlic, or here you can you use per crushed garlic that comes in a jar.

    Step 5

    Meaure out the tomato sauce and soy sauce. Add garlic to the tomato sauce and soy sauce, mix and set aside. This is the chicken marinade.

    Step 6

    Chop cooked chicken into bite size pieces then put in a small bowl.

    Step 7

    Add marinade to chicken

    Step 8

    While you prepare the vegetables, set the chicken aside to soak in the marinade.

    Step 9

    Get your vegetables ready for the sushi.

    Step 10

    Slice avocado and pepper, and grate the carrot. Now we are ready to make the sushi.

    Step 11

    I'm using this device thing, it is really easy to use .

    Step 12

    Get two bowls and fill with water. One will be for your hands to stop rice sticking to them, and the other is to wet the seaweed at the end, so it closes.

    Step 13

    Put rice in the sushi maker and spread it out

    Step 14

    Should look like this, now we can add the filling!

    Step 15

    Mayo as the base

    Step 16

    Then place the ingredients evenly along one side. Roughly even placing to ensure each piece has a bit of everything in it.

    Step 17

    Close and shut the clasp things, and put the cap on the end. Now turn the plunger knob thing until it doesn't twist any more, this is about 5 turns. By doing this the sushi is being compressed.

    Step 18

    Place seaweed in a board , and Take cap off end and push sushi out with the plunger.

    Step 19

    Roll up sushi in seaweed. To close the little flap bit of seaweed, use your other bowl if water and with either fingers or and egg brush, run water along the edge, then press into roll to close sushi.

    Step 20

    Should look like this . Repeat with remaining rice and ingredients .

    Step 21

    Here are the four I made, now slice and enjoy!

    Step 22

    Yum! Could serve with a dipping bowl of soy sauce.

    Step 23

    Enjoy! :)
