Sushi bowl preparation - ideally 2-3 hours before serving

Prepare the sushi rice as mentioned on the package. We always love to mix it with a marinade. Cook 4 table spoons rice vinegar with a small spoon sugar and some salt. Mix the sauce with the rice. Make sure you serve the sushi rice cold. While you cook the rice, cut the salmon in dices, add the sweet and salt soy sauce and marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge. 

Cut the vegetables and put them aside. Almost there! Start making the wasabi yoghurt sauce; get a bowl, add 3 table spoons of yoghurt and add the wasabi paste bit by bit until it’s up to your taste. Toast sesame seeds and you are ready to plate your dish.
