This is a twist on the classic California roll that meets a casserole. Once you try it you will be making this over and over and over. My son’s girlfriend introduced me to this and graciously showed me how to make this. You do need to stock up on a few Asian ingredients but once you do, you will just need to thaw the fish fillets and crab sticks and away you go! One of my favourite ingredients is the Furikake. This means sprinkle in Japanese and is a combination of nori, sesame seeds, salt & sugar some brands also contains fish.

Some of the other ingredients used are

Sushi Rice – These grains are short and they are typically used in Sushi preparations.

Crab sticks — these are really imitation crab ie they are made of fish, eggs and starch – it’s super tasty but not really nutritious so eat it in moderation.

Kewpie Mayonnaise – This special Japanese Mayonnaise is made with egg yolks and it’s emulsified using apple cider or rice vinegar, giving the mayo a custardy and luxurious feel. The bottle is plastic and very thin making to super easy to squeeze. It also has a little star shaped opening … that’s cool, but serves no real function

Sriracha Mayonnaise – it’s basically a combo of sriracha and mayonnaise that this comes ready made in a convenient squeeze bottle

Sriracha sauce – this is a special blend and made of a red Jalepeno hybrid chilli pepper and this sauce is said to have originated in Thailand.

Rice Vinegar – Rice vinegar is a type of vinegar made from fermented rice.

Sesame Oil – this has incredible flavour and a wonderful aroma

Unagi Sushi Sauce – this has an incredible Umami flavour

Nori or Roasted Seaweed – These are like crackers but way thinner and is used to hold a scoop of the sushi bake
