How to Roll Sushi

How to Roll Sushi

Whether it’s raw tuna or deep-fried, tempura-battered shrimp, it seems like everyone has a favorite kind of sushi. This delicious Japanese food tradition, which utilizes ingredients like fish, seaweed, rice, and vegetables, has spread all across the world and is now such a common food trend that you can even pick it up at grocery stores and gas stations. One of the best things about this savory (and sometimes sweet) treat is that despite its small size, it can be made into a filling meal or a light snack, which makes it great for any catered event, party, or cocktail hour. With our step-by-step directions and instructional video, you can learn how to roll sushi and impress your guests. Step-by-Step Instructions for How to Roll Sushi How to Prepare Sushi Rice Before you begin rolling your sushi, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve properly prepped your rice. You’ll want to use either medium or short grain white rice since they both mold together better than other rice options. Before cooking your rice, make sure you rinse it until your water isn’t cloudy. This removes any powdered glucose, talc, or rice powder that may be coating the rice. While it is safe to eat rice without rinsing it, washing it helps to improve the flavor. Pour rice and water into a bowl. For every serving of rice, you'll want to add three times the amount of water, so if you're cooking one cup of rice, add three cups of water. Using your hands, move the rice around to help scrape off the powder coating the rice. Then, pour the rice and water into a mesh strainer to drain the water. You should repeat this process until the cloudy water no longer appears when rinsing your rice. After you’ve cooked your rice, you should let it reach room temperature as this makes it easier to mold into a ball shape. Once your rice has cooled, you’ll want to sprinkle rice vinegar over it since this helps to add extra flavor. Make sure to stir the vinegar around so that it can evenly coat your rice. You’ll also want to use a sashimi knife to cut your rolls, as this will provide you with a more clean and even cut. If you do not have this kind of knife, then it’s important to make sure the blade of the knife you are using is extremely sharp since the nori (seaweed), rice, and filling can be difficult to cut through. How to Roll Hosomaki Hosomaki, also known as thin rolls, is a style of sushi that traditionally only uses one ingredient. For our video, we used cucumber, but you can also use thinly sliced carrots, sweet potatoes, avocados, or tuna. When making this roll, you will only need to use about half a sheet of nori. Since your hands will need to be damp at certain points of the rolling process, you’ll want to have a little bowl of water near your prep area. 1.Place the nori on your cutting board. 2.Fold nori in half and pull apart the halves. 3.With the shiny side facing down, place one half of the nori on a bamboo sushi rolling mat. 4.Spread about a cup of rice across your nori, leaving a ½" border visible. Dip your hands in the water before you spread your rice, but make sure that you shake off any excess water. 5.Place ingredient in the center of your rice. 6.To begin rolling, lift the end of the bamboo mat closest to you and fold it over your sushi ingredient. 7.Using the bamboo mat, tuck the end of the nori into the rice and ingredient. Make sure that you have a tight roll. 8.Lift away the mat from your roll, and dab water along the exposed edge of nori. 9.Using your bamboo mat, roll your sushi into the exposed edge of nori to close. 10.Pinch your sushi roll with the mat to make sure that the seams are tightly sealed. 11.Using a wet, sharp knife, begin cutting into your sushi. Make sure to wipe off your knife in between each cut. You should have six pieces. 12.Plate your sushi with a side of ginger and wasabi. How to Roll Futomaki Unlike its smaller counterpart, a futomaki uses a full sheet of nori and traditionally has four or more ingredients rolled in it. While a standard non-vegetarian futomaki will come with egg omelet, fish roe, chopped tuna, and whitefish flakes, this recipe can easily be modified into a vegetarian or vegan version. In this video, we used fresh cucumber, carrots, and avocado. 1.With the shiny side down, place the nori on your bamboo mat. 2.Spread about a cup of rice across your nori, leaving a ½" border visible. Dip your hands in the water before you spread your rice, but make sure that you shake off any excess water. 3.Place ingredients in the center of your rice. 4.To roll, follow steps 6-9 from the hosomaki rolling instructions. 5.Pinch your sushi roll with the mat to make sure that the seams are tightly sealed. 6.Using a wet, sharp knife, begin cutting into the center of your roll to make two halves. 7.Cut the halves into thirds, wiping off the knife between each cut. 8.Plate your sushi with a side of ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce. How to Roll Uramaki (Inside-Out) Roll A uramaki, commonly known as the “inside-out” roll, is one of the most common sushi rolls in America. Many believe that its popularity comes from the fact that the rice on the outside conceals the nori, making it less intimidating to sushi beginners. While there are no traditional ingredients in a uramaki, one of the most well-known styles is the California roll, which usually consists of cucumber, avocado, and crab meat or imitation crab. 1.Lay a piece of plastic wrap on your cutting board. Place your bamboo mat on top of it. 2.Take the plastic wrap and wrap it around your mat. 3.Place your nori on your mat with the shiny side up. Then add about a cup of balled up rice. 4.Spread the rice evenly across your nori leaving an inch border at the top. 5.Sprinkle sesame seeds over your rice. 6.Gently lift your nori and rice and flip it over so that the rice is now facing the mat. 7.Add your ingredients. 8.Begin rolling with your fingers pinching the nori to the mat. You may also need to use your other fingers to keep your ingredients in place. 9.Once you’ve begun rolling, pull back your mat and nori to make sure that your roll is tight. 10.Using your bamboo mat, squeeze your roll. 11.Unroll your bamboo mat to dab some water onto the exposed edge of your nori. 12.Take your bamboo mat and begin rolling your sushi into the edge of the nori. Then take the mat and squeeze to make sure that the seams are tightly sealed. 13.Using a wet, sharp knife, begin cutting into the center of your roll to make two halves. 14.Cut the halves into thirds, wiping off the knife between each cut. 15.Plate your sushi with a side of ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce. How to Roll Temaki (Hand Roll) Temaki, also known as a “hand roll”, is a cone-shaped piece of nori that has ingredients spilling out of the top. Since this sushi is larger than most rolls, it is eaten with your hands instead of chopsticks. Think of it as a sushi ice-cream cone. Since the idea of temaki is to have ingredients coming out of the opening, there’s no limit to how many ingredients you can add to this roll. The temaki in this video features spicy shrimp and spring mix. 1.Rip about 1/3 of your nori, leaving yourself with the 2/3 size sheet. 2.With the shiny side down, place ½ cup of rice in the upper left corner of your nori. 3.Place the ingredients on top of the rice. 4.Take the upper left corner of your nori and roll it in towards your ingredients.

How to Use a Rice Cooker

How to Use a Rice Cooker

Cooking rice in a rice cooker is the easiest way to prepare large quantities of rice at once. Many restaurants choose commercial rice cookers because they're no fuss. You simply add the rice, add the water, and wait! While using a rice cooker is simple, there are some additional steps you can take to save time on cleanup and ensure that you get rice that is perfectly cooked. Shop All Commercal Rice Cookers Rice Cooker Video Check out our rice cooker video to learn how to make rice the easy way. What Is a Rice Cooker? A rice cooker is a piece of kitchen equipment that cooks many varieties of rice and grains. They work by boiling water, which is then absorbed into the rice until it becomes tender. Rice cookers are automatic, which frees up your employees to work on other tasks while the rice cooks. You also don't have to worry about a rice cooker boiling over or scorching. Should You Rinse Rice? Yes, if you want to make the fluffiest rice with the best texture, you should rinse the grains first. Rinsing rice removes excess starch, which gives your rice grains a consistent texture and prevents the rice cooker from boiling over. It also helps to remove dirt or pesticides that may left on the grain from the manufacturing process. Rinsing rice is a good practice in general, but check the packaging on your rice first. Some rice is enriched with vitamins and minerals, which will dissolve if the rice is washed. How Much Water for 1 Cup of Rice? The water to rice ratio represents the perfect amount of water needed to cook 1 cup of rice. A one to one ratio, or one cup of water per one cup of rice, is expressed as 1:1. Each type of rice has its own water to rice ratio. Check the manual for your rice cooker to find the recommended rice to water ratio for your machine. Also refer to the rice package instructions for the optimal quantity of water for that particular type of grain. Rice Cooker Ratio These are general guidelines for 1 cup of dry, unrinsed grains: Long grain white rice - 1:1.75 ratio (1 cup rice + 1 3/4 cups water) Medium grain white rice - 1:1.5 ratio (1 cup rice + 1 1/2 cups water) Short grain white rice - 1:1.5 ratio (1 cup rice + 1 1/2 cups water) Long grain brown rice - 1:2.25 ratio (1 cup rice + 2 1/4 cups water) Parboiled rice - 1:2 ratio (1 cup rice + 2 cups water) Basmati or Jasmine rice - 1:1.5 ratio (1 cup rice + 1 1/2 cups water) Quinoa - 1:2 ratio (1 cup quinoa + 2 cups water) Need to stock up on rice? Click below. Shop All Bulk Rice How Long Does a Rice Cooker Take? Typically, cooking a large quantity of rice in a rice cooker takes between 25 and 35 minutes. Different types of rice require different quantities of water and cook times. Fortunately, a rice cooker is able to gauge when the rice is finished cooking and turns off automatically. How to Cook Rice in Rice Cooker Without Sticking? There are a couple steps you can take to prevent rice from sticking to your rice cooker. First, rinse the rice with cool water to remove some of the starch before adding it to the pot. Coat the rice cooker pan with a little oil or add it directly to the rice and water mixture. Another alternative is to use a rice cooker napkin. This resuable cloth is designed to sit inside your rice cooker while it's cooking. When the rice is ready, simply lift out the rice cloth and no sticky rice will be left behind. Rice Cooker Directions Follow our step-by-step instructions to use a rice cooker like a pro! 1.Measure the correct amount of rice and place it in a bowl. 2.Optional: Rinse the rice until the water turns clear. 3.Transfer the rice from the bowl to the inner pan of your rice cooker. You can also use a reusable rice napkin to make your cleanup afterwards easier. 4.Add water to the rice cooker pan using the right water to rice ratio. 5.Place the pan inside your rice cooker and close the top. You can also add any spices, oil, or butter at this step. 6.Plug in your rice cooker and turn the cooker on. Most cookers have a light on the front that indicates when the unit is on. 7.When your rice has finished cooking, the cooker will notify you by turning off the light, flipping the switch up, or making a sound. After your rice has finished cooking, let it rest for at least 15 minutes in the "keep warm" mode before serving. This will let any excess moisture evaporate and allow your rice to fully absorb the water. 8.Use plastic serving utensils or rice paddles to serve your rice. Using a rice cooker is quick and convenient, especially when making large quantities of rice, which makes them ideal appliances for food service establishments. Additionally, learning about rinsing your rice and the proper ratio of rice to water can help ensure that you're serving the fluffiest and best rice possible to your guests.
