I like to cook sushi rice with a strip of dried kelp or nori seaweed - it adds a lot of flavour. You can find it in most large supermarkets these days.
Perfect. - 12 May 2015
We just came back from living in Japan and I was craving sushi. I made this today and it was very good! I did not have the kelp but it worked out very well without it. I will use this recipe again next time I have another craving! - 01 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made according to directions minus the konbu dried kelp and it turned out fabulous. The secret is to follow the instructions carefully-let the rice sit/dry completely etc. (do not mess with it too much) ALSO: When adding the rice vinegar mixture do not mix it in but kneed with very few strokes just until combined so the rice grains keep their integrity and do not become soft and paste like. I highly recommend this recipe...thank you for posting! - 11 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
