If you like sushi, you’ll love sushi bake. For the uninitiated, sushi bake is basically a deconstructed version of a sushi roll that’s layered and baked in a casserole dish. It layers rice seasoned with furikake, a creamy layer of mayo and seafood mixture, drizzles of (sometimes spicy) mayonnaise, and more furikake seasoning on top! Once out of the oven, it’s topped with cucumber and avocado. If that description has you hungry for more, here are 5 awesome sushi bakes from TikTok.
