Spicy Tuna Sushi Bake

I can’t take credit for this dish but I had to share my take on it! Who knew TikTok would be such a treasure trove of recipe inspiration! The original recipe for this sushi bake was crab based and was posted by an amazing creator called “cookingwith_penny“. You should definitely check out their page!

I had to try it myself! I made a few tweaks based on my families tastes and used tuna instead of crab. See the recipe at the end of this post for exact measurements.

Mix together garlic salt, vegetable better than bouillon, sugar, garlic rice vinegar and sesame oil.

Mix the flavoring sauce through cooked white rice.

Mix together canned tuna, cream cheese, green onions, garlic salt, siracha mayonnaise, vegetable better than bouillon, sugar, black pepper, sesame oil.

Layer the seasoned rice on the bottom of a casserole dish and top with the tuna mixture.

Squirt siracha mayonnaise on top, measure with your heart.

Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until hot all the way through and the top is golden.

Top with eel sauce, diced green onions and sesame seeds.

We ate each bite with seaweed snack sheets which added to the sushi experience!
