    • Rice The rice most commonly used to make sushi is short-grain Japanese koshihikari. This rice is usually labeled Sushi Rice. This rice is sticky and soft and holds its shape very well. Also, sushi is often made with caloric rice. You can buy it at an Asian market or your local supermarket.
    • Rice Vinegar is the main ingredient used to make vinegared sushi rice. The vinegar adds a tangy taste to the rice and keeps it moist. Rice vinegar comes in two varieties: regular and seasoned vinegar containing Sugar and salt. This sushi casserole can be made with either type. You’ll have to leave out the salt and Sugar.


      • Furikake Seasoning: Furikake is a Japanese condiment of sesame seeds and dried seaweed. It also contains Sugar, salt, bonito, and sometimes other seasonings. You can purchase Furikake in Asian markets or online. It’s easy to make. Below are some “helpful tips.”
      • Salmon Skinless and boneless salmon fillets work well. This recipe is great for leftover salmon. Fresh salmon is the best, although canned salmon will work.
      • Cream cheese: cream cheese adds a creamy texture to sushi bake.
      • Kewpie Mayonnaise: This Japanese might only contain egg yolks, not whole eggs. This mayo is creamier and richer in texture than the traditional mayo. It is used to make this spicy mayo. It’s available in the Asian section or Asian markets of your local grocery store. You can also use regular Mayonnaise.
      • Soy Sauce: Adds umami and saltiness to the sushi bake. Use tamari saucegluten-free soy sauce, or coconut aminos if you are gluten-free.
      • Hot Sauce: Shriracha and Sambal work well, but any hot sauce will do.
      • Nori sheets are used to make traditional sushi rolls. Nori squares are ideal for scooping the baked salmon mixture. Just like a taco!
