Yum! And I had just finished my own sushi dinner, too! Although I can't make anything like that. I'm getting better, but slicing up the rolls is always a disaster for me. Do you have any suggestions for that?
Excellent photo work, by the way. :)

In order for your sushi not fall apart when you cut them requires several important elements:

1 Be sure you're using rice suitable for making sushi. Nishiki rice is a sticky medium grain rice, which is the best rice to use when making sushi. Do NOT use short-grain rice (not sticky enough, hence falling apart when you cut them).

*For years and years, my family only eat Nishiki rice. The best tasting rice as far as i am concerned.

2 Be sure you're also using a bamboo mat(Makisu) to roll your sushi. A tightly rolled sushi rolls tends to stay put when you cut them.

3 A very sharp knife always a plus.

I hope these tips helps and good luck

That does help! I've been using sushi-grade rice, but not the same as yours, and while I have been using a bamboo mat, I was pretty sloppy with it. I didn't realize that could make a difference. Thank you!

True. At least it's fun, and no matter how ugly it ends up it's still delicious!
