Shrimp Tempura for an American Sushi Roll

Shrimp Tem­pura for an Amer­i­can Sushi Roll

This is eas­ily one of the best recipes for sushi avail­able today. Place the sushi mat inside of the gal­lon sized plas­tic freezer bag, this ensures that the sushi rice does not become embed­ded into the mat, and is easy to clean up when you are going to make sushi from home. Lay the Nori sea­weed square on top of the plas­tic cov­ered sushi roll mat. Wet your hands and shake dry. Add a hand­ful of pre­pared sushi rice in the mid­dle of the Nori and gen­tly spread out to the edges. Press down gen­tly, and flip the sushi rice cov­ered Nori so that he rice side is touch­ing the plas­tic cov­ered sushi roll mat.


Next, add the slice of cream cheese, I like to slice it straight from the block into one long rec­tan­gle and lay it the entire length of the Nori. This adds a creamy deli­cious fla­vor that goes well with any Amer­i­can sushi roll, par­tic­u­larly one with shrimp tempura.

Cream Cheese for Sushi Roll

Cream Cheese for Sushi Roll

The eas­i­est and tasti­est way to use the shrimp tem­pura in this recipe is to stick them in a hot toaster oven for about ten min­utes until they are golden and crispy. Pre­pared shrimp tem­pura for the Shrimp tem­pura roll can be pur­chased from your local mar­ket­place in the frozen food sec­tion. Make sure that the shrimp tem­pura has had ade­quate time to cool prior to plac­ing them next to the cream cheese so that the cream cheese does not melt.




Pre­sen­ta­tion Tip: Driz­zle Eel sauce over the top to give it a sweet kick, for a spicy kick driz­zle with spicy mayo. Heck do both if you want to get crazy!

Next add the fresh juli­enned cucum­ber.  Now it is time to roll! Roll the sushi mat over the Shrimp tem­pura roll, away from you, cre­at­ing a nice seal from the sushi rice on sushi rice effect. Roll it again to ensure that it is fully sealed. Cut open and scoop out the con­tents of the avo­cado in as large of a piece as you can man­age. Cut the avo­cado into thin slices, and place on top of the Shrimp tem­pura roll. I like to use avo­ca­dos that are slightly riper than nor­mal so that they form to the top of the sushi roll better.

Place a piece of cel­lo­phane wrap over the top and gen­tly press down across the entirety of the Shrimp tem­pura roll. Grab your ser­rated knife, mak­ing sure that it is really wet, and slice through the cen­ter of the Shrimp tem­pura roll, while leav­ing the cel­lo­phane in place. Cut those pieces is half again, and then each piece in half again until you have eight equal sized pieces of sushi roll. Make sure to wipe your knife off in between cuts so that the cream cheese does not build up and cause the Nori to tear. Driz­zle eel sauce on top to add a deli­cious sweet­ness. This is an amaz­ing fla­vor com­bi­na­tion as we have the cream cheese and creamy avo­cado, the crunchy fresh cucum­bers, and the warm salty shrimp tem­pura. This Shrimp tem­pura roll is a easy sushi recipe, should now be plated on a dark square or I some­times use a long white rec­tan­gle dish, prefer­ably black/white or red plate for a fancy guest pre­sen­ta­tion.  After tast­ing this amaz­ing Shrimp tem­pura roll sushi recipe, you may decide that not shar­ing is your bet­ter option. Enjoy!
