How to make sushi:

  2. In an instant pot, combine rinsed rice and salt. Fill the container halfway with water. 1 teaspoon of salt
  3. Cook for 6 minutes on high pressure in an instant pot (with full natural release).
  4. Place the rice in a mixing bowl. Pour rice vinegar over the rice in an equal layer.
  5. Fold the rice gently to incorporate the rice vinegar, being careful not to shatter it.

Make spicy crab mix:

  1. Imitation crab meat or Alaskan crab meat should be shredded.
  2. Combine imitation crab meat or Alaskan crab meat, mayonnaise, and sriracha in a mixing bowl.

Rolling Alaskan Sushi Rolls

  1. Wrap plastic wrap around a bamboo sushi rolling mat.
  2. Place a nori sheet on the mat.
  3. To remove excess water, dip hands in water and clap. It’s a good idea to keep a small bowl of water and a towel nearby.
  4. Cover the nori with a layer of rice. For each complete nori sheet, use around 1 cup cooked rice.
  5. Cover the entire surface of the nori with rice (no gap). Distribute the salmon slices evenly over half of the plate.
  6. Turn the nori (rice/salmon side down, nori up) over.
