  • Reviews

  • “Worked wonderfully”

  • “I think there was way too much vinegar. It seemed to give it too strong of a vinegar taste and made it too moist.”

  • “I think the amount of vinegar is waaay too much for my taste.Everyone else also agreed.I’m not sure if I did it right?”

  • “very easy very good results”

  • “Very easy & very good!My son & I wolf’d on it.”

  • “This is exactly the way i make sushi but i dont use sugar, this recipe is devine!!!”

  • “First time i tried making sushi and this recipe made it very difficult only becuase it gives no measurements, how thick should the rice be or how wide the nori should be, so i think maybe adding these in would be very helpfull. But i like thePossible Sushi Filling that was a good way to quickly tell people what they can put in there sushi!!!”

  • “Sushi, always a good choice.”

  • “Mirj, these were absolutely great! I added a bit more rice to the vinegar/rice mixture, as it had a bit too much of a bite for me, but otherwise followed the recipe. Love the flavor! I made one batch with avocado, cucumber and carrot, and another batch with cucumber, carrot and imitation crab. Both tasted great. I’d like to try another batch with tuna and pickled asparagus. I have a severe weakness for sushi, but can never afford it. Thanks for a great recipe! ;)”

  • “I followed your instructions and had PERFECT sushi rice.I proceded to roll some crab dip into some and put some cooked salmon in some.Thanks for making what I thought would be a difficult mess into a simple, fun afternoon of play!This is going to save me so much money…….unless I find the flaying fish eggs I’ve been looking for to garnish my sushi with.”

  • ” Excellent – easy instructions to follow -I chose the California roll. I made sure the rice was fully cooked almost to the point of being a bit sticky.Used a sushi mat. Cut back a little on the vinegar Served of course with Wasabi (hang onto your hat) & Pick;led ginger. I sprinkled a few toasted sesame seeds on the outside of the roll before cutting.Also I put the layer of rice on the mat then the nori sheet.Thanks Mirj – loved it”
