HAND VINEGAR 1 ts rice vinegar 3 tb water Soy sauce; for dipping Just before rolling sushi, toast the nori by passing the shiny side over a high flame.

Lay a 1/2 a sheet of the nori, shiny side down on a counter. Combine the rice vinegar and water, and moisten your hands with this hand vinegar to keep the rice from sticking to your hands as you work.
