How to Make Sushi at Home

My friend, Chef Nik Gastfield, was recently featured on a local morning show (The Jam TV Show). The 3-minute clip is packed with great tips to help you learn how to make sushi at home. It’s super easy to do, all you need is:

  • Your fish (and other ingredients of your choosing)
  • A knife
  • A cucumber wrap

I suggest you check out the video below, featuring Chef Nik Gastfield from AO Sushi to learn a couple things about making sushi at home.

That’s How We Roll… Sushi

I was surprised by how easy it can be to make sushi at home. I usually steer clear of sushi because a roll can cost anywhere from $6-$20 at a restaurant, and I’m usually left hungry after having one. Now I know how to make it at home for a fraction of the cost!

As Nik mentioned too, if you don’t want to use raw fish at home, that’s no problem. There are plenty of substitutes including:

  • Cooked shrimp
  • Avocado
  • Cooked salmon
  • Fried crab
  • Even cooked chicken or steak
