If you love Japanese food, you know that spicy tuna, dragon rolls, California rolls, tuna rolls, are so delicious. Smoked salmon is great, but raw salmon has such a rich and full taste that can’t be compared. But how do we enjoy it at home?

Sushi rolls recipes can seem intimidating, but they are actually quite easy. The secret to rolls recipes is to have a really sharp knife, and you have to use sushi rice rather than the long grain rice you get at the store. If a sharp knife is not available you can do a sushi recipe where you eat it as one long roll or a cone. Sushi rice has rice to water ratio of 1:1 and needs to be soaked and rinsed before cooked or it will have a consistency similar to oatmeal and be very bitter and starchy. If that is still difficult, here are some other recipes as well that is sushi themed to still satisfy that taste craving. From Poke bowls to chirashi, I’ve put together five healthy and easy sushi recipes that will have you jumping for joy!

Good sushi often needs three things to go with it: soy sauce, ginger, and wasabi. Pink ginger is ginger that has been pickled in aspartame, whereas yellow ginger has not and is usually pickled with sugar. For those who are gluten sensitive, instead of using soy sauce (which is not gluten-free), you can use Tamari which is an alcohol-based umami salt sauce just like soy sauce. Be aware that the wasabi you buy over the counter is often just horseradish that is colored green and flavored for sushi. However, real wasabi is hard to come by unless you specifically seek it out so it is an acceptable substitute.

These three ingredients are common to sushi and also help to create a proper PH for digesting the raw fish that you might be consuming. They help with digestion and to fight inflammation, as well as provide a nice contrast against the flavor profiles.

Raw seafood has many benefits, but there are also lots of recipes that have cooked seafood or other ingredients like cucumbers or chicken. If you can’t get your hands on fresh, sushi-grade fish, you can still enjoy the flavor with other ingredients.
