  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 sheets nori (seaweed)
  • 1 lb BBQ pulled pork
  • 1 cucumber, julienned
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 oz cream cheese, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Soy sauce for serving
  • Pickled ginger for serving
  • Wasabi 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.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Heat over medium heat until the sugar and salt dissolve.
  4. Once the rice is cooked, transfer it to a large bowl and gently fold in the vinegar mixture. Allow the rice to cool to room temperature.
  5. Place a bamboo sushi mat on a clean surface and cover it with plastic wrap.
  6. Lay a sheet of nori on the mat, shiny side down.
  7. Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking, then spread a thin, even layer of sushi rice over the nori, leaving a 1-inch border at the top edge.
  8. Arrange a strip of BBQ pulled pork, cucumber, avocado, and cream cheese across the center of the rice.
  9. Roll the sushi tightly using the mat, pressing gently to form a firm roll. Moisten the top border with a little water to seal the roll. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  10. Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with panko breadcrumbs.
  11. Dredge each sushi roll in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  12. Dip the roll into the beaten eggs, ensuring it is fully coated.
  13. Roll the sushi in the panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  14. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F (175°C).
  15. Carefully add the breaded sushi rolls to the hot oil, frying in batches if necessary. Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  16. Remove the rolls from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  17. Slice the fried sushi rolls into bite-sized pieces using a sharp knife.
  18. Arrange on a serving platter and serve with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and wasabi.

Øqueyyurî (Fried BBQ Sushi) is a delightful blend of flavors and textures that brings together the best of sushi and BBQ. Perfect for a special gathering or a unique dinner experience, this dish is sure to impress and satisfy. Enjoy your culinary adventure!
