Ikura is salmon roe. Each egg is shaped like a small orange sphere, glistening and filled with salty liquid.
You can remove the fish roe from the salmon, or simply purchase a package of salmon roe.
For nigiri sushi, wrap a large strip of nori that covers the sides of the rice ball and protrudes around the top to form a cup (the nori should be 1 by 7 inches). Fill the formed cup with a spoonful of ikura, careful not to let it spill over. Serve immediately as the nori will wilt and turn soggy.
