Tips on how to make sushi at home?

Firatcim | Aug 9, 201008:33 AM     9

Times are tough. I can no longer blow away a hundred bucks at my favorite sushi haunt. Besides, I've always wanted to learn how to make sushi at home to control what goes into it and to have fun while rolling my own maki. When I tried it a few times, I had a hard time spreading the rice thinly on Nori. The result was more like a Godzilla sushi, threatening whomever braved to take a bite with countless calories. I ate it, but my guests demurred, and rightfully so. I would appreciate any tips on the fine points of tackling sushi at home, especially on how to spread the rice thinly. Thanks in advance.
