If you like the commonly known Lion King sushi roll, then here's a homemade recipe I'm sure you'll enjoy.


6 pieces salmon, sushi grade; cut 1/4" thick, nigiri-size
2 tablespoons mayonnaise; Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise
Unagi sauce; up to 2 tbs
1 piece foil; 6" tear from your roll of foil
California Roll or any other prepared sushi roll; uncut
1 Bamboo mat
1 Sushi Knife; (or really sharp knife)
1 Saran Wrap

Original recipe makes 1



Turn your oven onto broil & mix the Kewpie Mayonnaise and Unagi Sauce in a small bowl and set to the side.

Begin with a prepared, uncut California Roll. Lay the 6-7 salmon pieces on top of the roll, ensuring the entire top of the roll is completely covered by fish. Using some saran wrap (or any other preferred method) mold the fish to the roll.

Cut into 8-10 pieces using a sushi knife (or really sharp knife utilizing saran wrap if needed, for a cleaner cut). Place the cut roll onto the foil, and then fold the foil up around the 4 sides of your roll (creating a leak proof barrier for the sauce). (See the picture for concept).

Pour 1/2 the sauce mixture over your roll, ensuring to cover all of the fish.

Put directly under the broiler for about 5-7 min until the sauce begins to blacken. Pour a little more sauce over the roll and continue to broil for 2-3 more min until it starts to bubble again.

Serve immediately.

Comment or review

Try other sushi rolls instead of just a California Roll. The concept of the Lion King is the seared/broiled fish and sauce on top of any roll. [I posted this recipe.]
