Boring Sushi Rolls be gone! 7 New Sushi Trends you must try

Do you love sushi, but find a regular old hand roll just doesn’t cut it anymore? Well I’ve rounded up the most novel sushi alternatives for your consideration.

Sushi Burrito

Swap a tortilla for nori and you have a super sized sushi roll with all your favourite fillings in one. It looks health, tasty and super satisfying. Where has the sushi burrito been all my life?!

Sushi Cake

Not a cake made to look like sushi, but a cake made of actual sushi ingredients. Perfect to share with sushi loving friends, or to make for a sushi loving friend as a birthday treat. This one would be super easy to make at home, just use a cake tin as a mould.

How about adding Sushi Candy to the menu for a real Sushi Party treat!

Sushi Pizza

I’m still not sure about this fast food mashup. Variations on the sushi pizza theme include using a grilled rice base with assorted fresh toppings (tasty), to whacking raw fish on a regular cheese pizza base (not so appealing).

Sushi Burger

Is it just me or is the whole concept of a sushi burger kind of genius? Sure it’s probably more suited to eating with a knife and fork than with your hands, but it’s a fun alternative to a regular burger. I just want to know if it still comes with fries.

Sushi Sandwich

Super lunchbox friendly, the sushi sandwich is an easy to make alternative to the sushi hand roll. No bamboo mat required. The kids will love this alternative to a vegemite sandwich.

If you aren’t a fan of rice, swap it out for soft bread to make these Sushi Sandwich Rolls – perfect as a lunchbox snack.

Sushi Doughnut

Super hot in vegan circles at the moment, the sushi doughnut is a fun idea but to be honest I prefer a real doughnut. Although the doughnut with the face looks pretty cute.

Cute Sushi

If you want to win at the high stakes game of competitive lunchbox packing, you need to up your game and bring out the big guns – Cute Sushi. Check out youtube for amazingly complicated tutorials. The hand rolls at my local sushi joint look so disappointing compared to these.
