  1. First, prepare the sushi rice. Rinse the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Combine the rice and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix together the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Once the rice is cooked, mix in the vinegar mixture and let it cool.
  2. While the rice is cooling, slice the Hamachi fillet into thin, sushi-style pieces. The slices should be thin enough to roll but thick enough to taste the rich flavor of the Hamachi.
  3. Next, place a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. The sushi mat will help you roll the sushi tightly and evenly.
  4. Spread a thin layer of the cooled sushi rice on the nori, leaving a small margin at the top for sealing the roll.
  5. Place a slice of the prepared Hamachi on top of the rice. The Hamachi should be centered on the rice to ensure it's evenly distributed when you roll the sushi.
  6. Now, roll the sushi. Using the bamboo mat, start at the bottom and roll the sushi away from you, applying slight pressure to keep the roll tight.
  7. Once the sushi is rolled, use a sharp knife to slice it into bite-sized pieces. Remember to wet the knife between each slice to prevent the rice from sticking.
  8. Serve your homemade Hamachi sushi with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger. The soy sauce adds a salty umami flavor, the wasabi adds heat, and the pickled ginger cleanses the palate between bites.


Ensure your Hamachi is sushi-grade for the best flavor and safety. The sushi rice should be sticky but not mushy. Practice makes perfect when rolling sushi, so don't be discouraged if your first few rolls aren't perfect.
