Video #0004 - The Sushi Experiment 3.0: Nigiri, Temaki, Chirashi, and Facing the Fish

Greetings, and welcome to the third and final installment in this series of sushi making videos.  It’s finally time to run with the big dogs and face your fears – raw fish.  But don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as it sounds, and assuming you have access to a reasonably good Asian foods market (or are willing to order frozen products shipped to you in dry ice over the internet) you’ll be just fine.  (Look at it this way, not only do you get good quality raw fish, but also dry ice to play with. Fun!) Today we learn how to make Temaki, or hand rolls; and Nigiri, or pressed sushi. We also take a brief detour and learn the Way of the Blade – handling sushi knives.

This is the final video in the Sushi series. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed it. I’ll be returning to audio podcasting after this. But stay tuned until the end of the video, because I’ll be talking about the future of Otaku no Podcast and these video podcasts.

Links to some of the products mentioned in this video:

A good seller of frozen sushi/sashimi-grade seafood Reasonably priced carbon steel yanagi (sushi knives) on eBay – if this one is sold out, use the “see other items” link to find more) The more high-end sushi knife I own – again use the “see other items” link to find more, if you’re interested A source of good Japanese water stones A really lengthy article about proper knife care, sharpening, etc. Another article on the proper care of carbon steel knives How to make proper Nigiri Sushi (this is pretty intense) Another method of making Nigiri Sushi (somewhat less intense than the previous one, but not by much!)
