Ingredients to make salmon sushi bake

  1. Sushi rice – sushi rice is usually starchier than regular rice. It is a short-grain, sticky rice that you normally see in the typical sushi roll.
  2. Kewpie/Japanese mayo – is a type of mayonnaise originating in Japan. It is made from a base of oil and egg yolks and is typically less acidic and thicker than regular mayonnaise. It is often used as a condiment, dipping sauce, or component of various dishes. 
  3. Furikake/Japanese rice seasoning – is a mix of seasonings used to flavor rice. Furikake is most commonly made of dried seaweed, sesame seeds, spice, and chili peppers. The spices used can vary depending on the maker, but typically include salt, soy sauce, and mirin. Furikake is often used as a condiment on sushi or as a garnish for other dishes.
  4. Roasted seaweed or nori sheet – like roasted seaweed, nori sheet is another form of dried seaweed that is used to wrap sushi. They’re also thin roasted seaweed but aren’t seasoned.

Notes: Why use codfish? The texture of cod is very similar to crab meat, I highly recommend using cod to substitute real or imitation crab meat.
