If you are in London, Makiko recommends Ā getting fresh fish from Atari-ya foods.

I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to get fresh fish from a good and reliable supplier if you are going to make sushis. Please be careful. Alternatively, use smoked salmon for instance or make vegetarian ones.

Also, see how we put cling film on our sushi rolling mats? Do it, it will make cleaningĀ so much easier.

Let me know how you get on!
