Tobiki Sushi

Ingredients For Sushi Rice

1 cup sushi rice short grain sushi rice (can buy from Chinese grocery or Amazon)

1 cup water

1 ½ tablespoons sushi vinegar (optional) or mixing 1 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt

For Tobiko Sushi

3 tablespoons tobiko (flying fish roe) – (can buy from Chinese grocery or Amazon)

6 oz cooked shrimp or crab, salmon, tuna, etc.

1/2 cucumber cut into 1/2-inch strips

2 sheets nori (seaweed)  (can buy from Chinese grocery or Amazon)

2 avocadoes


  • Cook Sushi Rice: Wash the rice and add it to the rice cooker together with water. Once cooked, transfer to a large bowl and let it cool down slightly. When it’s still very warm, stir in the optional sushi vinegar (or the mixture of rice vinegar and sugar).
      • Make Tobiko Sushi: Lay out the bamboo mat with a piece of plastic wrap on top (this will make clean up easier and prevent rice from sticking to the bamboo).
      • Fold the nori sheets in half and split them using a pair of scissors.
      • Place half of the nori sheet on top of the bamboo.
      • Take 3/4 cup of cooked rice and evenly spread over nori. (You can dip your hands in vinegar water to prevent sticking.)
      • Flip everything so that rice is facing down.
    • Place shrimp, avocado, and cucumber on top of the nori.
    • Place the thumbs underneath the bamboo mat and lift the edge up and over the filling.
    • Roll the bamboo mat away from you and apply some pressure to tighten it up. Keep rolling until the ends meet.
    • Add Tobiko Topping: Remove the bamboo mat, and spread tobiko on top of the roll.
    • Place plastic wrap on top, and cover with the sushi mat. Squeeze gently to press the tobiko around the roll.
    • Remove the mat while keeping the plastic wrap. Slice the roll into bite-size pieces. Remove the plastic wrap from each piece. Serve and enjoy!
