  • Japanese Sake – typically will come in a large bottle labeled junmai sake. Can also substitute with dry sherry wine or Chinese cooking wine, found at local grocery stores or Asian markets. 
  • Sweetener –  use your preferred sweetener.
  • Carrot – peeled and cut into sticks.
  • Persian Cucumber – use any type of crunchy cucumber.
  • Avocado – a ripe avocado tastes best for maximum creaminess.
  • Soy Sauce – low-sodium Soy Sauce preferred. Can also use tamari for gluten-free.

🥢 Dashi Pro Tip

For easier preparation of the dashi, use Hondashi mixed with water. This quick tip simplifies the process and ensures a flavorful base for your dish.

🌀 Mixing Pro Tip

For fluffy eggs, utilize a Hand Mixer to incorporate air into the egg mixture. This technique enhances the texture of the eggs, resulting in a lighter and fluffier consistency.

Step 2 Next, pour the egg mixture into a heated and oiled pan over low heat, swiveling the pan to create a thin, even layer. Once the egg is no longer runny, add the prepared vegetables and carefully roll one side over, then the other, to form a roll.

🍳 Wrapping Pro Tip

To wrap the egg blanket neatly around the vegetables, Avoid Overstuffing the filling. Overfilling makes it difficult to wrap the sushi rolls smoothly.

Step 3 Chop into smaller rolls and serve with soy sauce dipping sauce.

🍣 Garnishing Pro Tip

Add a finishing touch by garnishing the sushi rolls with Sesame Seeds for an extra pop of flavor and visual appeal.

Recipe Variations

You can take the egg wrap technique to the next level by using it to encase salmon, creating a flavorful Salmon Wrap. Simply place a piece of seasoned salmon onto the egg blanket before rolling it up, ensuring each bite is packed with the rich taste of salmon complemented by the light and fluffy egg wrap.

Pairing Recommendations

Serve the Egg Roll Sushi alongside other sushi rolls like the Cream Cheese California Roll or Soy Paper Spicy Tuna Rolls for a varied sushi experience. Additionally, consider pairing it with Garlic Truffle Edamame for flavorful sides or a warm bowl of Tofu Miso Soup.
