What is a sushi burrito? 

Simply put, a sushi burrito is a large sushi roll wrapped up like a burrito.  The ingredients are typically those of a traditional sushi roll: protein, vegetables, rice and nori (dried seaweed sheets).  However, instead of slicing the sushi into pieces, it’s served as one whole wrap.

Mentions of the sushi burrito date back to the early 2000’s, but a San Francisco-based company, Sushirrito®, claimed its origin in 2008 and first brought the sushi burrito to the masses in 2011.

How can I make it? 

If you want to make a sushi burrito of your very own, we recommend this simple recipe. You can also save it on Glutto here.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix cooked sushi rice, rice vinegar, sugar and salt
  2. Slice avocado, salmon, cucumber, carrots in thin pieces & set aside
  3. Place nori sheet onto a sushi roller (if you don’t have a sushi roller, you can get an inexpensive one here)
  4. Moisten fingers in bowl of warm water to help spread sushi rice evenly on the nori sheet
  5. Place toppings on the nori sheet (leave 1 inch of space from the bottom)
  6. Roll sheet and gently press down as you roll, so the rice keeps the roll together. Add additional pressure when you reach the end of the roll so it doesn’t fall apart.  Slice the ends for a clean look.
  7. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi (optional) and enjoy!

P.S. If you’ve already mastered the sushi burrito, maybe you should try your hand at the sushi donut.
