Whilst there are many different skills to be learnt and years of training to become a professional sushi chef there are many versions such as Salmon Hosomaki that can be made at home.

Hosomaki are made as long thin rolls with nori (seaweed) on the outside and a single filling. They are a great option to get started with. Once you feel more confident and you are pleased with your technique, you can move on to more adventurous sushi such as uramaki – inside out rolls or temaki – handrolls.
