What's the hype all about?

We all know that Japanese food is well-loved by Filipinos, so it is not surprising that this deconstructed version of Sushi suddenly became a favored and in-trend dish. It has all the components of the scrumptious sushi roll but is baked in a casserole pan!

I also found that making this casserole baked version is much more cook-friendly and less intimidating compared to making rolled Sushi where you have to use a bamboo rolling mat. With this version, all you have to do is scoop a portion and wrap it in a small piece of roasted seaweed or nori sheet to eat.

About the Ingredients

Sushi Rice- this is white rice mixed with Japanese vinegar, salt and sugar. Though it is highly recommended to use short-grain rice, I find that Jasmine and Dinorado work as well. As long as your rice does not end up fluffy and loose, you can use it.

Furikake-is a mixture of dry ingredients that is used as seasoning and sprinkled on top of cooked rice, fish, and vegetables. Since it was a bit challenging for me to find one in the supermarket, I just made one myself! I used roasted sesame seeds, Korean roasted seaweed flakes, and some salt and sugar.

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can explore by adding Tobiko or Flying fish roe. These are fish eggs that are a vivid red-orange in color and has a salty taste and crispy texture. It can be added as a topping for baked sushi.

Korean Roasted Seaweed - It is very similar to the regular Nori used for sushi but they are crunchier and normally seasoned. You can buy them as small sheets or bits mixed with sesame. I recommend using this instead of regular nori because the later is chewier. But if all you have is nori that would be fine too. You can also roast it yourself, by brushing one side of the nori with a bit of sesame oil and sprinkle with salt. Stack them up and roll together. Next is to roast them in a pan one by one until it turns green and crispy.

If this Japanese Sushi Bake put you in a mood for more Asian inspired recipes, you can try these next!

    Sooo dang good! Mine didn’t hold together like yours but I put more mayo and cream cheese and crab so that’s prolly why. How do you reheat leftovers though??

    First time making it and it was a hit! Did not have mango, but added orange juice in replacement. All of it was gone when brought to a party and it made me think I have to make double to serve everyone! Hopefully, next time I can make it with mango! Thank you for the recipe <3

    Love this recipe. Made a tiktok version before and it was just ok. Yours was DELICIOUS. Used canned tuna instead of imitation crab.

    Question : if I wanted this to fit in a 9x13 pan to the same thickness as the original 8x6, would I x1.5 or x2 the recipe? Thx.


    • Bebs says

      Glad you like it, D. Make it double for a 9x13 pan.


  13. Ceci says

    Easy Sushi Bake Recipe - Foxy Folksy (34)
    Great recipe! It is awesome fresh. But how can we prep the left overs for the next day to avoid the rice getting crunchy?


    • Bebs says

      Hi Ceci, normally I will not recommend refrigerating rice as it easily dries out. But maybe if you cover the pan with plastic wrap then place it in the fridge.

    My husband and I live in area where we are able to eat amazing restaurant sushi often. This was my first attempt at a homestyle sushi bake. It was amazing! My husband looked apprehensive when i put it on the dinner table but he soon started exclaiming, “This is really good!” Per other suggestions, I baked without the cucumber and mango, then sprinkled on top after baking to maintain some crunchy texture. I also added an avocado topping. Served with soy sauce on the table for personal preference. Next time, I’m going to cut up all of the seaweed sheets and serve it poke bowl style. I love that I am able to eat this when pregnant. I

    Btw, love your crispy pata recipe. The lye water really works.

    Thank you for the recipe. My sister used this and started selling baked sushi this May. I think hers is the best in town because there's a lot of good feedbacks and repeat orders. But now that the mango season is almost over, what is a good susbstitute for it?

      Hi! Can i pre-make it a day ahead and just bake it next day?


      • Bebs says

        Sure you can, Tes.


  26. ES says

    What type of cream cheese to use? The spread or the brick?


    • Bebs says

      You can use any of the two but the spread is easier to work with. Hope you like it.


  27. Joy says

    Can i use ranch dressing instead of Japanese mayo?


    • Bebs says

      I have not tried it so I am not sure if it will work well. You can use regular mayo too.
