I made sushi for the first time at the weekend. the seasoning for the rice had this recipe:
- 125 ml rice vinegar
- 30 ml mirin
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons salt
This was for 460g rice (dry weight).
This seemed like a lot of salt to me. Today I made some more rice, but only single quantity and I realised that last time I forgot to double the quantities of sugar and salt when making double the amount. It was quite salty last time, but I should have put 4 tablespoons of salt in.
That can't be right can it? What was it more likely to be? 2 Teaspoons?
