  • 4 oz
    smoked salmon
  • 1 c
    cooked sushi rice
  • ·
    pickled ginger, if desired
  • ·
    soy sauce for dipping, if desired
  • ·
    wasabi, if desired

How to Make Smoked Salmon Nigiri-Zushi


  1. Slice the salmon into bite sized pieces.
  2. Put a little wasabi on one side of the fish.
  3. Moisten your hands with water and place a small ball of sushi rice in your palm, about 2 tablespoons.
  4. Press the fish, wasabi-side down, onto the rice.
  5. Gently hand-sculpt and shape it into an oblong. The rice has to be tight enough to hold a shape, but loose enough to melt in your mouth.
  6. Serve with soy sauce for dipping and additional wasabi and pickled ginger, if desired.

    Dip in soy sauce, fish first, not rice.
