Love making sushi at home? This tasty collection of homemade sushi recipes and rolls are perfect for your next sushi night!
Let’s face the facts.
Restaurant sushi is expensive, store-bought sushi is lacking, and homemade sushi is intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be!!!
Making sushi at home is actually a lot easier than you think, plus it’s super affordable! Many seafood markets and grocery stores now carry sashimi-grade seafood and it’s oh so delicious!
We often frequent our local Gulf-coast seafood market for our sushi ingredients but have also had great luck with Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, and even Publix carrying all we need to make tasty sushi rolls at home!

homemade sushi sauces
You cant have sushi without getting a little saucy! Soy sauce and ponzu sauce are classic store-bought staples, but there a few sauces you can make at home too!
- 1 TBSP homemade or store bought mayo
- 1/2 TBSP sriracha chili sauce
Adjust to your ideal heat level from mild to unreasonably spicy! We love ours super spicy.
Feel free to substitute with vegan mayo or plain greek yogurt if needed.
- 1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet white wine)
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Heat in a sauce pot over medium heat, whisking constantly to thicken. (approx. 10 min) That’s it! Eel sauce is easy to make and adds a delicious kiss of sweetness when drizzled over your favorite sushi rolls.
