Perfect Sticky Sushi Rice

Leave a comment

My hubby and I try to get out at least every two weeks for date night and usually when we do… sushi is on the menu. It is my fool proof choice for date night dining because you really can’t go wrong. Fresh ingredients, warm rice and wasabi is taste bud heaven.
But I always assumed it was a cuisine that was far above my skills in the kitchen, until my girlfriend showed me how easy it is to make! So for those nights when the perfect date sounds like your own comfy couch and pajama’s, become your own sushi chef! No oven, no baking, and very little dishes. As long as you have the right sticky rice to hold everything together, it’s easy peasy. When choosing our ingredients, we deep fried some yam sticks, and chopped fresh avocado, cucumbers, peppers and crab meat.
And as for the rolling papers, I ditched those a few rolls in and just rolled them by hand. If you can roll a sleeping bag you can roll a sushi roll!
Layer your seaweed with rice, a little sushi mayo, and your chosen toppings and you are ready to rock… and roll….bahaha.

 Sticky Sushi Rice

  • 2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Add rice and water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Cool until warm enough to handle.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, oil, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool, then stir into the cooked rice.  The rice will be very wet so keep stirring and the rice will dry as it cools. Makes about 5 cups.
