Wasabi sushi bake

This dish is a fiery fusion of traditional sushi and a modern casserole. It's bold, unapologetic, and packed with flavors that will make your taste buds dance.


  • 4 cups sushi rice
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb imitation crab meat, shredded
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup wasabi paste
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup furikake seasoning
  • 1 sheet of nori (seaweed), cut into small strips


  1. Wash the sushi rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Combine the rice and water in a rice cooker and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. Once cooked, let it cool slightly.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Cook over medium heat until the sugar and salt dissolve. Pour this mixture over the cooked rice and gently fold to combine. Set aside.
  3. Boil the shrimp in salted water for about 2-3 minutes until they turn pink and opaque. Drain and let them cool. Once cooled, chop them into bite-sized pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, wasabi paste, soy sauce, and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. Add the shredded crab meat and chopped shrimp to the mixture and fold until everything is evenly coated.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large baking dish, spread the seasoned sushi rice evenly at the bottom. Layer the wasabi mixture on top of the rice, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
  6. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool slightly. Sprinkle the furikake seasoning and chopped green onions on top. Garnish with the nori strips. Serve warm.

This dish is a perfect blend of textures and flavors, delivering a punch of wasabi heat balanced with creamy, savory layers. Enjoy this bold creation with friends or family and watch them be blown away.
