Starting on the west coast and quickly spreading across the country, sushi burritos have become a popular edition to modern restaurants nationwide. These trendy seafood burritos are more customizable and transportable compared to traditional sushi rolls. Sushi burritos require only a few ingredients and are simple to make.
Test some different sushi burrito flavors out on your menu with this easy-to-follow recipe:
- 1 nori sheet
- 1/4 cup cooked rice, cooled to room temperature
- Desired fillings (vegetables, tuna, etc.)
- 1 splash rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 small bowl warm water
- Prepare. Mix rice, rice vinegar, sugar, and salt together to make the rice for the burrito.
- Slice. Slice all of you desired vegetables, meat, or other fillings and set aside.
- Spread. Put a nori sheet on a sushi roller. After dipping your fingers in lukewarm water, spread the prepared rice on the nori sheet.
- Fill. Place your desired fillings on the nori sheet near the bottom, leaving about 1 inch of exposed rice at the bottom.
- Roll. Starting from the end, roll the sheet upwards while applying slight pressure. Apply extra pressure when the two seaweed ends meet.
- Wrap. Wrap the burrito in parchment paper to hold contents together and make a twist at the end to prevent food fallout. The parchment paper wrap will make it easier to eat.
- Serve. Plate on a sleek plate and serve with soy sauce and wasabi.
