Sushi has become a popular trend in many U.S. cities, even finding a home in the cold cases in many grocery stores. But one trip to your local sushi bar can cost upwards of $20 a person; not exactly something you'd want to do on a regular basis.

The art of sushi takes years of training, especially to truly master a great roll or some of the more complicated combinations. But anyone can make their sushi bar favorites in the comfort of their own kitchen.

Obtaining Your Sushi Ingredients

With the international sections of our grocery stores ever-expanding, you should be able to find most of the key ingredients for your sushi experience right on the shelves. The main things you need for any basic sushi roll are:

  • Sushi rice - smaller, fatter grained white rice
  • Sheets of nori - roasted, dry seaweed
  • Sushi vinegar - can be found in some stores, or made by mixing 5 tablespoons rice wine vinegar with 2 teaspoons of sugar and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Plastic wrap

Vegetables like cucumber, avocado, scallion, and carrot are all commonly found in sushi rolls (and grocery stores). Some rolls even use fruits like mango, kiwi and strawberry to create bold flavor combinations.
