  • fresh chives, chopped, sesame seeds, teriyaki sauce, and tobiko for garnishing
  • plastic wrap 8x 8 inch squares

  • Prepare a bowl of water that is about 30% rice vinegar for moistening your fingers..
  • Put down the sheet of plastic.
  • Using about 1 1/2 tablespoons of rice, form a ball.
  • Lay your fish or vegetable on the plastic and set the ball of rice on top. now pull the corners together to form a bundle and twist tightly. Unwrap the plastic and there you have it!
