Master the Art of Sushi Volcano Rolls - 🌋 Become a Sushi Volcano Pro

Creating a sushi volcano roll is an art that requires a blend of precision, patience, and practice. If you're new to sushi making, I recommend starting with simpler sushi rolls for beginners. However, if you're ready for a challenge, let's dive into the process.

Gathering Your Sushi Volcano Roll Essentials 🍣

First, let's gather our ingredients. You will need sushi rice, nori (seaweed sheets), sushi-grade fish (I recommend salmon or tuna), cream cheese, avocado, masago (capelin roe), and spicy mayo. For the topping, we will use a mix of baked seafood (like scallops) and more spicy mayo.

Prepping Your Sushi Ingredients Like a Pro 👨‍🍳

Before we start rolling, ensure all the ingredients are prepared. Rinse and cook the sushi rice according to package instructions. Slice the fish, cream cheese, and avocado into thin strips. Cook the scallops in a little bit of soy sauce and mirin until they're just done. Mix them with spicy mayo and set them aside for the topping.

Now, let's get to the exciting part - rolling the sushi. Place a sheet of nori on a bamboo mat, shiny side down. Wet your hands and spread a thin layer of sushi rice on the nori, leaving about 1 cm at the top edge. Lay down your strips of fish, cream cheese, and avocado. Now, it's time to roll. If you're unsure about this step, check out my guide on sushi rolling techniques.

Creating Your Sushi Volcano Roll Eruption 🌋

Once the roll is made, cover it with a layer of masago. Then, spoon the cooked scallop mixture on top, creating a mound. Bake the roll in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 10 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and slightly browned. Drizzle some more spicy mayo on top, and there you have it - a delicious sushi volcano roll!
