Chef John's Easy Sushi Rice
Sushi rice can be used for so many things. Sushi, of course, but also as a side dish for grilled meat or as a wrap using seaweed. Plus, it's perfectly fine at room temperature, so it's great for picnics.
I buy my rice vinegar already seasoned, but to make your own seasoned rice vinegar, combine: 1 cup rice vinegar, or cider vinegar; 1/2 cup white sugar; 4 teaspoons kosher salt
You can also finish the rice in a large bowl using a bamboo rice paddle to stir and toss. Rice may be a bit stickier than rice tossed on a sheet pan.
