Here are some tips for making nigiri sushi:

  • Use fresh, high-quality ingredients. The quality of your ingredients will make a big difference in the taste of your sushi.
  • Don’t overcook the rice. The rice should be slightly sticky, but it should not be mushy.
  • Don’t overcrowd the sushi maker. Fill the sushi maker with just enough rice to make a small mound.
  • Use wet hands to handle the rice. This will prevent the rice from sticking to your hands.
  • Be gentle when pressing the sushi maker into the rice. You don’t want to crush the rice.
  • Serve your sushi immediately with your favorite condiments, such as soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger
