Supplies from store:

1 cup of Sushi rice
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 leaf Roasted seaweed
2 tablespoons Rice vinegar
5 pieces of pink sushi ginger
1 Japanese sushi mat
2 teaspoons of Wasabi paste

Additional supplies:

  • Cucumber
  • Egg
  • Surimi


  1.     Break the egg and stir it in a cup
  2.     Warm some oil in a pan and fry the egg. When the egg is ready you can let it cool down on a plate on the side.
  3.     Put half a cup of rice in a small pot. Add water and rinse the rice.
  4.     Drain the water.
  5.     Add water again until the rice is about quarter an inch under water when it is dispersed in the pot.
  6.     Let it boil gently on a medium heat.
  7.     The rice is ready when all water has been absorbed.
  8.     Peel the cucumber and cut into pieces of about 10 cm each.
  9.     Now cut the cucumber pieces in julienne (each bar is about a quarter inch wide and thick).
  10.     Divide the surimi bars each into 4 equal pieces.

Making the sushi:

  1.     Add 2 tablespoons of Japanese sushi vinegar to the rice and mix well.
  2.     Take a leaf of dried seaweed and place it on the sushi mat.
  3.     Spread a thin layer (0.5cm) over the seaweed. Leave about an inch on two opposite sides.
  4.     Put a row of surimi across the entire length in the middle.
  5.     Place a row of cucumber along the entire length right just next to it.
  6.     Place a strip of egg right alongside the entire length.
  7.     Now roll the seaweed into a sausage by using the sushi mat. Start with a side where you have not glued rice about 1 cm.
  8.     In the end, you attach the extra loose end of seaweed to it by wetting it with a wet finger and sticking it.
  9.     Moisten the blade of a knife with a wet cloth. This ensures that the sushi does not stick to the knife.
  10.     Now cut the sausage into equal pieces of about 1 cm to 1.5 cm wide. Wet the blade again between each cut.


  1.     Spread the pieces of sushi over a plate.
  2.     Take a small dish and fill it with soy sauce.
  3.     Take a small dish and fill it with pickled ginger.
  4.     Take a small dish and fill with wasabi paste.
  5.     To eat you dip the sushi in some soy sauce and / or some wasabi and you can put a small piece of ginger on it to eat.

Bon appetit !
