To Make The Sushi Rice
Step 1: Cook the sushi rice as you would normally and then put it in a small bowl. While the rice is cooking, add rice vinegar, granulated sugar, and sesame oil, and mix it all together. Then, heat it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds until the sugar has dissolved.
Step 2: Once the rice is cooked, add the mixture to it and mix it well.
To Make The Spicy Mayo
Step 1: In a small bowl, add kewpie mayo, lemon juice, sesame oil, sugar, and sriracha, and mix it well.
To Make The Crab And Shrimp Filling
Step 1: Add chopped crab meat, raw shrimp, cream cheese, kewpie mayonnaise, sriracha, sesame oil, soy sauce, and lime juice in a bowl and mix them well.
Assembling And Baking The Sushi
Step 1: Before you start assembling the sushi, preheat the oven to 425°F.
Step 2: While the oven is getting preheated, take a 9x9 baking pan and add a layer of sushi rice to the bottom of the pan.
Step 3: Follow it up by sprinkling some furikake on the top. After that, top it up with a layer of the crab and prawns mixture and put it in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes until it’s golden on the top.
Step 4: Once it has cooled down a bit, scoop the sushi, wrap it with crispy seaweed and enjoy!
