Video: How to Make Sushi

A beautiful platter of fresh sushi is always a good idea, but it’s often regarded as restaurant food only to be enjoyed when eating out. In this video, I’m going to show you how to make your own sushi platter from scratch at home.

If you catch or have access to fresh fish that can be enjoyed raw, knowing how to make your own sushi is a game-changing skill. From nigiri, to maki, and spicy poke, this variety pack of sushi styles is always a crowd pleaser.

It’s really important to embrace using a wide variety of fish species when making or enjoying sushi. On a global scale, if we only target tuna to satisfy our sushi cravings, it leaves our ecosystems out of balance and deprives our taste buds of the endless possibilities of flavors that are out there.
