Mosaic Sushi Roll Recipe – Japanese Food Recipe

Love eating sushi? Love food art? This mosaic sushi roll is the perfect combination of delicious food and art.

This recipe takes about 20 to 30 minutes to prepare. Serves 2.


• 2 nori sheets
• Cooked sushi rice
• Masago roe (orange)
• Wasabi-marinated masago roe (green)
• Sushi grade tuna
• Avocado slices, cut into half


On a nori sheet, spread out some cooked sushi rice (roughly 3 ounces of rice). Leave a centimeter at the end of the nori sheet without rice.
Add some masago roe over the rice (approximately 2 tablespoons).
Using one end of the nori sheet (not the one with the 1cm space), carefully roll the nori.
On another nori sheet, thinly spread out 3 ounces of cooked sushi rice. Don’t forget to leave a 1 cm space on one end!
Spread out the wasabi-marinated masago roe. Just like the first one, carefully turn into a roll.
Let the rolls sit for 5 minutes before cutting them.
Cut the rolls in half, lengthwise, and then cut into quarters.
On a new nori sheet, place one of the quartered roll with the wasabi-flavored roe. Add the quartered roll with masago roe next to it, with their nori sheets facing each other.
These quartered rolls will form a V shape between them.
In the V space, add some avocado slices, which will be the bed for the tuna.
Add the tuna on top of the avocado slices.
Cover the tuna with more avocado slices on top.
Place two of the quartered rolls on top of the avocado slices, with their nori sheets back-to-back with each other.
Carefully roll the mosaic sushi, turning it into a squared-shape roll.
Let the mosaic roll sit for 10 minutes.
Cut the mosaic roll and serve.

Ideas And Tips:

• Have a container of water handy so that you can wet your hands when you flatten rice on the nori sheets. It is also a good idea to have a wet knife so that it is easier to cut the rolls into the right size.

• Masago is popularly used for sushi. It comes from the capelin fish which is a member of the salmon family.

• It is easier to roll the sushi if the rice is spread out thinly. You can use your hands or the back of the spoon.
