How to Make Sushi Rice, Rice with Vinegar


Sushi is a big boom in Finland. Sushi restaurants can be found in every town, and you can buy sushi by weight at the supermarket.

However, I’m from Sushi country, and it is difficult to be satisfied with the quality. It is often the case that Japanese people talk to each other about how good this restaurant is and how not so good that restaurant is. Especially when it comes to the quality of the sushi rice, it’s hard to find something that satisfies me.

Then one day, I realized it. If there is no good sushi, why don’t I just make my own? Fortunately, fresh, raw salmon is always available here. Then all I had to do was to make the sushi rice. So, I made a recipe for sushi rice.

I don’t have a Japanese measuring cup for rice, so even if the recipe says 2 gou, the Japanese unit for rice, it’s not easy. So I converted the rice into volume, and all the seasonings were put together by weight.

By the way, I was surprised when I ate this sushi. I don’t feel thirsty after eating. When I was in Japan, I always felt thirsty after eating sushi at any sushi restaurant, but maybe it was the high salt content.
