Maki and Uramaki Sushi Recipes, what is the difference and how to make them. Find a step by step video tutorial and recipe to print.
As we like Sushi with plenty of salmon, I always prefer to make it at home.
It is very easy to make and I will walk you through all you need to know.
First of all, let's clarify the names:
What is the difference between the two? Maki is sushi rolled with the seaweeds outside, Uramaki in Japanese means inside out, meaning the seaweed is inside the roll. Nigiri are made only with rice and fish and Sashimi is only the fish.
Ingredients are very important, especially if you use raw fish.
Make sure the salmon has been stored at -20 C for at least 7 days.
To be safe, buy it at your favourite fishmonger.
In France I buy it at Carrefour Antibes

Wash your sushi rice 2 to 3 times in fresh water
- Put the rice in a pan, add water (about 2 cm above the rice) and cover. There should be enough water to steam boil, but not too much. If too little, the water evaporates completely, and the rice will burn.
- Boil for 5 minutes, Simmer for 12 minutes, Let it rest covered for 10 minutes Do not open the pan while cooking as the steam will evaporate.
- In a small pan heat up the rice vinagre to dissolve the sugar and the salt
- Add the syrup to the rice. Mix and let it cool down completely.
Best if rested for 1/2 day in the fridge
