1. Rinse the sushi rice in a fine mesh strainer under cold water until the water runs clear. Cook the rice according to the package instructions, using a 1:1 ratio of rice to water. Once cooked, let the rice cool slightly.

2. In a small saucepan, combine rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Heat over low heat until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour this mixture over the cooked rice and gently fold it in using a wooden spoon. Let the rice cool completely.

3. Place a nori sheet on a bamboo sushi rolling mat, shiny side down. Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking, and spread a thin layer of rice over the nori sheet, leaving a 1-inch border at the top.

4. Place your desired fillings (such as fish and vegetables) in a line across the center of the rice. Using the bamboo mat, roll the sushi tightly from the bottom up, pressing gently to seal.

5. Using a sharp knife, cut the sushi roll into 6-8 pieces. Wipe the knife clean between cuts to ensure clean edges.

6. Serve the sushi with soy sauce, wasabi, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds on the side for dipping and garnishing.

7. Enjoy your homemade sushi! Experiment with different fillings and toppings to create your own unique sushi creations.
