I was craving nigiri the other day, and remembered that I saw sashimi-grade fish being sold at a local Asian/Japanese supermarket. Having never made nigiri before, I thought this would be the perfect weekend project. If I’m looking to make a general dish (rather than follow a specific recipe), I usually research 5-10 various recipes, and read up on the dish. Nigiri took a little more research than usual, since there are actually three “dishes” I am making: sushi rice, sushi soy sauce, and raw fish. Making nigiri is harder than it looks – the ones pictured are far from perfect – but I’ll definitely be practicing!
