- 2 cups Sushi (or Short Grain) Rice
- 2 cups Water to cook and whatever’s needed to rinse the rice
- 2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp Kosher Salt
Place the rice into a mixing bowl and cover with cool water. Swirl the rice in the water, pour off and repeat 2 to 3 times or until the water is clear.
Place the rice and 2 cups of water into a medium saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once it begins to boil, reduce the hear to the lowest setting and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat & let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small bowl and microwave on high for 30-45 seconds. Transfer the rice into a large wooden or glass mixing bowl and add the vinegar mixture. Fold throughly to combine and coat each grain of rice with the mixture. Allow to cool to room temperature before using to make sushi or sashimi.
