Sushi is gaining popularity at a rapid rate these days. It’s the kind of thing that once you try you’re hooked! We’ve made many friends and family sushi believers over the years, and most of that is due to this sublime Sushi Rice. At the base of any good sushi recipe is the rice. Sushi rice is sometimes called sticky rice, because of its sticky, starchy texture. It’s perfect in these gorgeous California Rolls, Shrimp Tempura Godzilla Rolls (so yummy!!!)
