  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups kimchi, chopped
  • 1 cup imitation crab meat (or real crab meat)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 sheet of nori (seaweed), cut into small pieces
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Soy sauce, for serving


  1. Rinse the sushi rice under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Combine the rice and water in a rice cooker and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. Alternatively, you can cook it on the stovetop.
  3. Once cooked, transfer the rice to a large bowl. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Heat until the sugar and salt dissolve. Pour this mixture over the rice and fold gently to combine. Allow to cool.
  4. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the chopped kimchi, imitation crab meat, mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, and softened cream cheese until well combined.
  6. In a baking dish (approximately 9x9 inches), spread the sushi rice evenly to form the base layer.
  7. Spread the kimchi and crab mixture evenly on top of the rice.
  8. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.
  9. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Garnish with nori pieces, chopped green onions, and sesame seeds.
  11. Serve the sushi bake warm with soy sauce on the side for drizzling.

This Creamy Kimchi Sushi Bake is a unique and flavorful dish that brings the best of both worlds: the tangy, spicy kick of kimchi and the creamy, savory goodness of a sushi casserole. It's sure to be a hit at your next meal! Enjoy!
