Best-Ever Homemade Sushi

Picture yourself on a culinary adventure to the heart of Japan with our Best-Ever Homemade Sushi recipe. Sushi lovers, this one’s for you! Whether you’re a seasoned sushi chef or a newbie in the kitchen, you can create restaurant-quality sushi right at home.


  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 4 sheets nori (seaweed)
  • Assorted fillings (avocado, cucumber, cooked shrimp, etc.)
  • Soy sauce, for dipping
  • Pickled ginger and wasabi, for serving


  1. Start by rinsing the sushi rice until the water runs clear. Cook it according to the package instructions and let it cool.
  2. While the rice is still warm, gently mix in the rice vinegar, making sure not to mash the grains. This will give your rice a delightful flavor and stickiness.
  3. Place a bamboo sushi rolling mat on a clean surface and cover it with plastic wrap. Lay a sheet of nori on the mat.
  4. Wet your hands to prevent sticking and spread a thin layer of sushi rice evenly over the nori, leaving about half an inch of nori at the top.
  5. Add your choice of fillings in a row at the bottom third of the rice-covered nori.
  6. Roll the sushi tightly using the bamboo mat, applying gentle pressure as you go.
  7. With a sharp knife, wetted to prevent sticking, slice the sushi roll into bite-sized pieces.
  8. Serve your Best-Ever Homemade Sushi with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and wasabi. Enjoy!
