Chef John's Easy Sushi Rice
March 25, 2017

No, I tried this one as well, and you absolutely need the proper balance of rice wine vinegar, sugar and salt for proper sushi rice. At least that's what I think, and it seems to be what I've eaten in every sushi restaurant I've visited - ever. To be super simple: equal amounts rice wine vinegar and sugar, and half that amount of salt. Microwave or heat over the stove until solids dissolve. Epicurious adds a piece of kombu for flavor, which I usually do.
