You can be a sushi chef and make a living from it. You don't have to buy expensive machines to do it. It is possible to use your own home, even in your garage or backyard and make your own sushi.
I don't mean that you should pick up a book on how to make your own sushi. The best place to get an idea of what it takes to make good sushi is through sushi recipes. You can buy a decent guide, or you can go right out and start making your own recipes.
So what's the best way to go about making your own sushi? First, you need to get a large bowl. Get a size bowl that you can cover, so you can throw in your ingredients.
You may need to get a big bowl for your ingredients. The reason for this is that the rice will tend to soak up more water than you think. A shallow bowl will let more of the water come in.
You want your ingredients to be as close to sushi size as possible. That way, they'll fit into the bowl. Don't make them too big though. You'll end up getting soggy and your taste buds will be unsatisfied.
Now all you need to do is start thinking about the different kinds of sushi that you can make. There are quite a few, but you can start with just one. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just something to give you an idea of what you're doing.
You can start with sushi rolls. Just a simple, long roll. Something light and fresh, but gooey and delicious. Look for rolls that have soy sauce on them. Soy sauce adds moisture to the rice.
Wagyu steak, or premium grade beef from Canada or Australia is a good starting ingredient for a sushi roll. The high grade beef will have a good marbling and fat. When you buy Wagyu beef, it should be fresh.
Don't forget to add the rice. If you get rice, go with white rice. The rice will be more chewy and gooey. When you add the rice, don't get too much at first.
So now you've got your ingredients ready, and you've got your sushi roll prepared. There are a few things you need to take care of before you can start making sushi. For starters, you need to make sure you have a clean sink for washing the rice. Wash it out and you're ready to start cooking.
Sushi rice is not made in one sitting. This is where you can start experimenting. You can start out by adding a couple of vegetables to the rice. Remember that fresh veggies don't have to be expensive. You can find good home made vegetables in every grocery store.
Another thing to keep in mind is that food needs to cook slowly. That means you have to take your time. If you're impatient, the sushi won't turn out the way you wanted it to.
