Sushi is a Japanese recipe made of cooked vinegared rice. It can be mixed with other ingredients of choice like prawns, salmon, fruits and vegetables however, this particular sushi recipe features salmon, carrot, cucumber and bell peppers.
The method of preparation and the ingredients used vary widely but one commonality of sushi is rice otherwise referred to as shari.
The first step involves, parboiling the sushi rice with boiling water for at least 5 mins before washing off the starchy water for the final cooking..........
