Easy Baked Sushi Recipe for Busy Parents

Dear sweet moms and parents! April here helping you relax into motherhood from my tropical island home.

Today I’m sharing a simple yet crave-worthy pandemic classic – the humble sushi bake, also known as “Casserole sushi”.

This Japanese fusion dish layers sushi rice and an assortment of fillings like salmon, grilled tofu, pickled ginger and scrambled egg. The mixture is baked until bubbly, then topped with teriyaki sauce or mayo sauce mix for a flavorsome alternative to traditional hand rolls.

Was suddenly craving this pandemic food but I don’t have most of the usual ingredients. So I tried making this fun baked sushi recipe that has minimum ingredients but maximum flavor. It has all the flavors you love from traditional sushi rolls, but with a lot less fuss. Sometimes “easy” means streamlining a recipe to its bare essentials – and that’s today’s pared-down sushi bake.

Sushi bakes make a perfect midweek solution for busy parents missing the flavors of their favorite sushi roll. With just a few basic ingredients from the pantry, you can enjoy the flavors of Japan at a fraction of the cost of takeout. Now it can be a go-to merienda  that the whole family will love.

To make sushi bake, start by cooking your sushi rice. I just used our Jasmine rice but for better adherence, Japanese rice is best.

While the rice is cooling slightly, prepare the toppings and any additional fillings like mango, etc, 

Mix the cooled rice with rice vinegar and sugar and spread the rice in a greased baking dish. Top with layers of the fillings, roe and nori sheets torn into pieces.

Sprinkle top with roe and nori as well as Furikake.

Bake at 350 °F until bubbly, about 15- 20 minutes. 

Here’s the recipe!

I hope this comfort classic, full of the familiar flavors that stir our souls, brings moments of joy and shared meals with your little ones, and family mama. Enjoy this pandemic-inspired baked sushi meal with the whole family! Let me know how it turns out. Happy sushi baking!
