Have always eaten the sashimi (just the raw tuna) but really would like to prepare sushi and try to wrap the tuna in rice in the manner of a sushi chef. A local Asian supermarket told me what rice to purchase and that I need seaweed to put between the cooked rice and tuna but other than that I am clueless. Does anybody do this themselves and if so how did you learn?

If you have an H-Mart near you, tey have an entire aisle devoted JUST to sushi items. Nori, seaweed, fillers, rice, fish, eel, etc. I was amazed the first time I went. You'll need a mat also which you actually do the rolling with. Good luck!

Basically, you prepare your rice, fish slices etc. Place the seaweed on the rolling matt and spread your rice in the center until it covers about 2/3 of the seaweed, and then add your filling. Then roll the sushi up with the mat. There are a couple of different methods of rolling, but practice and prep is the key.
Important:
For the sushi rice. Make sure you rinse the grains thoroughly, until the water runs clear through it. It takes awhile, but if you dont rinse it enough, it will be way too sticky to even work with.

$20 Bucks buys you an Electric Rice Maker, the Pot has a lid, add ingrediatents, plug in and its done, - that simple. The pot lifts out and keeps Rice for a few days in Refrigerator.

Good for two or three rounds of Sushi, beats the heck out of buyiong it in store.

No Brainer for Sushi Rice, - 3lbs of Rice is $3 bucks, the recipe above is perfect!

Don't forget to look for worms - on any fish your slicing to eat raw

sushi rice

First of all, you need Japanese rice. My reccomendation will be Koshihikari or Akitakomachi.
Cook the rice with a peice of dried kelp on the top.
While cooking the rice, prepare the sushi vinegar. I usually use one cup of rice vinegar and third cup of sugar for 3 cup of rice. Mix the rice vinegar and sugar.
When the rice is cooked, remove the kelp lightly mix (turn) the rice. Put the rice in a large bowl and mix with the sushi vinegar. Use fan to cool down the rice and keep mixing the rice until it become nice, shiny, and cool.

Hope this helps.
Enjoy.
