Cooking time20-30 min
Difficulty levelEasy



  • Use 200 grams Norwegian salmon for sashimi and 200 grams for nigiri.


  • Cut an even piece of the salmon fillet and thinly slice into 3 mm slices. Diagonally cut the fillet, always against the marbling in the fish. Place on a plate.


  • Mix sugar, salt and rice vinegar in a small pan, and gently bring to a boil while stirring. The rice marinade is ready when the sugar and salt has dissolved.
  • Cool the marinade before use.
  • Prepare the sushi rice according to the instructions on the package.
  • Transfer the rice into a wide dish and gently fold in some of the marinade. Make sure the rice doesn’t get too moist, so add a little at a time.
  • Set the rice to cool in room temperature.
  • Start by cutting the fish fillet in an even piece, and then cut it into 2-3 mm thin slices diagonally.
  • Mix water with a little rice vinegar, and lightly moist your hands to prevent the rice from sticking.
  • Take approx. 1 tbsp of sushi rice and use your hand to gently make an oval ball shaped like a grain of rice.
  • Spread a little wasabi under a slice of salmon and place over a ball of rice. Carefully press along the sides and on top so the seafood and rice holds together.
  • Serve the sashimi with ponzu sauce and the nigiri with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.
