Step 2: The fish

Unagi is served warm. Heating in the microwave for 1 minute.

Step 3: Forming the sushi

Moisten your hands in a bowl of water. This will stop the rice sticking to your fingers.

Pick up a little of the rice and form it into an oblong shape. Nigiri literally means hand shaped

Place the unagi on top of the rice, then position a strip of nori across the centre of the fish. Pick the parcel up by pinching either side, then seal the two ends of the nori together.

Step 4: Finishing touches

Lightly brush with kabayaki sauce, this is a sweet dressing.

And sprinkle with sesame seeds
