Prepare the ingredients. This part probably takes the most time, but once it’s ready, there won’t be any further cooking for the chef.
- Cook and make the sushi rice--allow the time to cool it properly because it tastes better when cooled than when warm.
- Carefully slice whatever ingredient you prefer, whether fish, vegetables or meat, into elongated strips that will better fit your hand-roll.
- Be sure to provide soy sauce, wasabi and ginger for your guests who want them.
- Finally, take some time to arrange all your ingredients artistically on a large plate. It's the little details that go a long way toward a strong visual presentation.
