Christmas Sushi Roll Recipe

If you’ve never made sushi before, it can be an intimidating and difficult task to master. One of the major reasons that people try to make sushi at home is because they think it can’t be done well. In reality, it can be done well, but there is a chance that the roll won’t turn out perfectly. Despite the difficulties that people may encounter when attempting to make sushi, there are plenty of resources available in order to help people with the task.

Sushi Roll is a popular and delicious Japanese dish, and the Christmas season brings plenty of possibilities for creating recipes to enjoy. The most traditional way is to use a different color sauce for each roll, but there are other ways that you can use this holiday to create your own sushi roll. Unlike traditional sushi, where it’s possible to use fruit, vegetables, or anything else you’re able to find in your local market, in this case, we’re talking about a Christmas-themed sushi roll.

Christmas is approaching and the thought of eating sushi with your loved ones may already be on your mind. I know that the Christmas Sushi Roll recipe sounds a little cheesy, but you’ll love the results. This is actually a very simple recipe with no difficult steps, making it a great recipe for beginners. If you want to make this for Thanksgiving or Christmas, feel free to add some extra toppings and seasonings.

Christmas Sushi Roll Recipe is a delicious and festive recipe that you can serve with a crisp salad and finger foods such as steamed buns and sushi. We are so excited to bring you this recipe because it is one of our favorite Christmas recipes. This recipe is pretty easy to make, and it’s a great way to use up some leftover vegetables. The secret is to use a mix of vegetables that are mostly water and vegetables that are mainly oil. The recipe calls for roti (which is rice) but you can use any type of rice that you like. The sushi roll ingredients are readily available at a sushi restaurant, so you can use them if you have both ingredients.

How to make Christmas Sushi Roll

This is a recipe for a Christmas Sushi Roll. Christmas Sushi Rolls are popular in Japan and Japan loves sushi and Sushi Rolls. They have a wonderful combination of savory and sweet. They are easy to make and are perfect for parties or just for yourself.

Ingredients

FOR THE SUSHI ROLL

  • Sushi Rice, 1 Cup
  • Nori, 4 Sheets
  • Water, 1 1/2 Cup 
  • Rice Vinegar, 3 Tablespoon 
  • Salt, 1/2 Teaspoon 
  • Sugar, 2 Tablespoon
  • Food Coloring – green and red
  • Everything But The Bagel

FOR THE FILLING

  • Avocado (scooped and sliced), 1
  • Mini Cucumbers (peeled and sliced into cubes or sticks)
  • Carrots (either in sticks or small chunks)
  • Shrimp (Peeled Deveined and Tails off Cooked), 6 
  • Crab Meat Chunks, 16 pieces (Cut in ½)
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s Secret Dipping Sauce

Instructions

Step 1

Place the sushi rice (or short grain) in a mesh sieve and rinse until the water runs clear. Put the water and rice in a pot and bring to a boil. After the rice has boiled, cover it.

Step 2

Reduce the heat and let the rice absorb all of the water. Prepare the Rice Vinegar mixture while the rice is cooking.

Step 3

Add rice vinegar, sugar, and salt to a small saucepan over medium heat. Make certain that both the salt and sugar dissolve, and then remove from heat. Cool in the refrigerator while the rice is still cooking.

Step 4

Let’s go back to the rice. After the water has been absorbed, mix once more to move the rice and separate it a bit. The rice vinegar should be taken out of the refrigerator and spread throughout the rice. Do not overmix, as the rice will appear sticky.

Step 5

Divide the rice into three portions. (You will make three rolls, but color them only green and red. To make this easier, I suggest you still separate into 3 bowls, one red, one green, or vice versa. I do this just to make portioning easier. ) Each portion will make 1 sushi roll.

Step 6

Place one portion in each of the three bowls. Color each bowl separately. One should be green. Another should be red. And the third will either be red or green. Be sure to use a separate fork for each color of rice. Add a few drops (as many or as few as you prefer). Combine.

Step 7

Next, move on to the next bowl. Set up the bowls of colored rice to roll the sushi rolls. Wrap the bamboo sushi mat in plastic wrap before you start rolling. Next, dip either your rice wooden flattening spoon or your fingers into some water. 

Step 8

Spread the Nori wrapper out. After that, add a scoop of colored rice to the wrapper. To make three, repeat this process 3 times using all three bowls. Be sure to flatten it (the Shamoji paddle works well).

Step 9

Once the Nori is covered, place the plastic-coated bamboo mat on top. Flip it over so the wrapper is facing you, not the rice.

Step 10

Make a line about 1″ up from the start of the long side of the roll. Roll, crimp to hold it together, and roll again until you reach the end of the roll. If anything falls out, you can always tuck it in again. Cut it in half. 

Step 11

Add a shrimp to the top. Sprinkle Sweet Baby Ray’s Sauce on top for a little tang and bite! 

Step 12

Repeat steps 8-11 for each sushi roll.

Step 13

Serve and Enjoy!
