Unagi Tobiko Wakame Sushi Rolls

In July, the eventlessplanner threw a great backyard sake tasting party where I mentioned that she made the best sushi rolls ever. Well, yours truly has gotten a hold of the recipe and made a batch for the family Christmas potluck.

First, you cook Japanese sushi rice and while its hot, you fold in a mixture of rice vinegar and sugar to taste. We put in too much vinegar so the rice was stickier than it should be but the whole thing still turned out well despite this.

Grill some frozen unagi per the directions on the package.

Peel one large cucumber, remove seeds, and cut into thin sticks.

You will also need tobiko fish roe and wakame (seaweed salad)

If you're talented at making round things with your hands then you won't need the sushi rolling mat but I needed it. Phil even used a spam musubi maker to make some experimental square ones. You'll also need nori wrappers. Lay down the rice across the wrapper, add all your ingredients on top evenly

and roll

mine was more rectangular but food is still food. You'll need an extremely sharp knife to make a clean cut in the rolls.

Phil went a little crazy with the macro shots but this photo came out well

all packed and ready to go to mom's house. These were so yummy and everyone ate them all up as appetizers. I will definitely make this again. Thanks TP!


  1. OMG that looks SO good! Anything w/unagi and fish roe is the best tasting combination! Good job! :)

  2. no prob. They look great! God, I love masago!

  3. Yum, these look so good! My mom used to have a sushi rolling mat - I'm going to scrounge around for it next time I visit home!
