Nori, as well as all seaweed, is very high in vitamins and minerals and low in calories. It also wraps well and you can put anything inside. Featuring smoked turkey, this recipe showcases nori’s versatility, but feel free to stay in your comfort zone and swap turkey for 3 ounces of smoked salmon.
How to make the best sushi rice: Rinse rice until water runs clear. Place 2 cups rice and 2 cups water in a small pot. Bring to a boil uncovered, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook according to package directions. Remove from heat, let rest, covered for 10 minutes then transfer to a large bowl. Whisk together 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in a glass bowl or measuring cup, heat until sugar and salt dissolve. Pour over cooked rice, mix well, and cool until ready to use. Any remaining rice can be frozen (in portioned packages, if desired) and will keep for 1 month.
