*When I’m making sushi a rarely measure except when cooking the rice. I cut the ingredients I just go by how much I need. The most important thing in making sushi is make sure you cook your rice the proper way and season it well. For my twist I did half sushi rice and quinoa an then added the toasted sesame seeds.The fun of making sushi also you can make or put any ingredient you want. enJOY!!!
