Rinse the sushi rice in a sieve, extremely well, until the water runs clear. 

Pour the rinsed rice into a pot with the 500ml water.

Place rice onto the heat and bring to a boil. 

Once rice reaches a boil turn the heat down to the lowest setting.

Switch the heat off and leave the rice, lid on, for a further 15 minutes. 

In a small saucepan, combine the salt, sugar and rice vinegar over low heat.

Spread rice out onto a clean tray and allow to cool. 

For the filling:
