A FUN AND DELICIOUS SUSHI CAKE

Sure, there are a ton of ways you can use ingredients like sushi rice and sashimi. You can always go the traditional route with timeless classics like this scattered chirashizushi or this tekka maki.

Or… you can embrace the creative and, dare we say, adventurous side of things and whip up a sushi cake that is sure to shake things up at your next family gathering or office party.

Same ingredients as the classics – entirely different outcome.

This sushi cake is topped with salmon sashimi, cooked shrimp and savory salmon roe (ikura). And there’s a vibrant center layer consisting of fresh sliced cucumber and garden fresh shiso leaves. We also love adding sliced avocado for a creamy balance of textures.

This homemade sushi cake hits a perfect savory balance, much like your favorite pieces of nigiri and maki at your local sushi joint.

But the most important ingredient in this vibrant recipe is also the most humble of all. The rice 🍚

 

WHAT IS JAPANESE RICE?

Japanese rice is short grain rice that, once cooked, takes on a translucent appearance and a soft and slightly sticky texture. 

Your Tiger rice cooker is a great tool for preparing perfect Japanese rice with the simple press of a button. However, to make sushi rice there’s one final step to follow after the cooking process that will have your tastebuds dancing!

 

HOW TO MAKE SUSHI RICE

After your rice cooker sounds off that it’s done cooking your rice, simply add a mixture of rice vinegar, sugar and salt (exact proportions are in the ingredients tab) and give it a stir. These ingredients impart a savory, slightly sweet and tangy element to your rice – and create a balanced, nuanced flavor to the composed bite.

Your sushi cake will be the talk of the party! And, trust us, it won’t last long.
