"Found @ allrecipesdotcom & credited to LucyDelRey, I needed "Perfect Sushi Rice" for both of the 2 recipes that will follow this one. All 3 recipes are being entered For Culinary Quest #3 which will visit the cuisine of Japan. I hope it will also work for the rest of my "fellow travelers". I put this in the condiment category since that seemed logical to me, esp since its intended use is limited to being a part of Sushi. Pls read my NOTE at the end of the Prep Steps. (Times were given, but do not include cooling) ENJOY!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Rinse the rice in a strainer or colander until the water runs clear. Combine w/water in a med saucepan & bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low, cover & cook for 20 min. Rice should be tender & water should be absorbed. Cool until cool enough to handle.

Step 2

In a sml saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, oil, sugar & salt. Cook over med heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool & stir into the cooked rice. When you pour this into the rice, it will seem very wet. Keep stirring & the rice will dry as it cools.

NOTE: 1 reviewer made an clever suggestion & I tend to agree. After rinsing the rice, put it in a med-lrg saucepan w/all the remaining ingredients to complete the recipe using 1 pan. It saves prep time plus clean-up time, eliminates 1 of the cooling periods & also apparently better mellows the flavors.

I tossed all these ingredients in a rice cooker, gave them a good stir and let the cooker do the work! The rice turned out perfect, very tasty. I used it to make sushi rolls which will be served as an appie.

I prepared the rice as here described for your smoked salmon and avocado sushi. It is very important to rinse the rice first! Thanks for posting!
