Step 2

Heat up 1 1/2 cups of water in a pot. Once it starts boiling, add rice, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook rice for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and completely has absorbed the water. Stir occasionally while it is cooking. When ready, add rice vinegar, fluff it with a fork and set aside.

Step 3

Move all ingredients around a flat clean surface. Place nori sheet in the center. Using a spoon spread about 2-3 tbsp rice on left half of the nori sheet. If rice gets too sticky add a little bit of water.
