A traditional Japanese party dish made with a very healthy combination of ingredients.

When making nigirizushi, it is imperative to have all the necessary ingredients to hand before you begin. If you are right handed, the sushi rice should be in a bowl on your right. Besides the toppings, you should also have wasabi to hand, and a bowl of tezu, or vinegared water for dipping hands.

Tezu is essential, because without it, the rice will stick to your hands. Ordinary water will not do either, because this will wash the sushi vinegar off the rice, and affect taste and consistency.

This kind of sushi is somewhat similar to nigirizushi, in that a ball of rice is shaped by hand, and other ingredients placed on top. The difference is that a strip or nori is wrapped around the sushi, to form a wall that prevents the toppings, which are typically various fish roe, from falling off.
