Baked Scallop Roll Sushi Cake 😍 I understand that it isn’t traditional sushi by any means but it is delicious and a fun way to serve it! This one is a variation of my other Sushi cakes, or “Rosca De Sushi.” This was a very popular dish where I grew up. It is typically made with imitation crab, but you can always play around with your favorite seafood. This one is a little different from my other sushi cake recipes, because this one is baked.

Why You’ll Love Baked Scallop Sushi Cake

This is sooo good! It gives main character energy lol. This recipe is so fun to make, and delicious. It’s very versatile, because you can add more toppings of your choice, and play around with the ingredients. The flavor of the baked scallops and the sauces comes together so nicely, and creates a delightful experience.


You can substitute the scallops for your favorite seafood, such as shrimp, salmon, or crab.

Recipe Tip

Cook your rice in a rice cooker the night before. Way better results imo. Only broil for 3 min max so the cucumber and avocado don’t heat up!
