Making sushi at home can be intimidating, what with making sushi rice, rolling it up just right, and dealing with raw fish. With these baked salmon sushi cups, you can skip all that but still get all the flavors of your favorite roll. Baked in mini muffin tins, these also come together fast, making them perfect to eat for a quick lunch or to serve as a bite-sized app at your next party.
To really do these right, use a Japanese mayonnaise—Kewpie is the brand most commonly found in the U.S. It’s got a touch more sweetness and a lot more umami than your regular mayo and is worth seeking out for this recipe. That said, if you can’t find it, whatever mayonnaise you usually use will do just fine too.
Though you might be tempted to build these cups in the muffin pans, we highly recommend placing the rice on the nori before lining the muffin tins with it. The rice helps to soften the nori so it folds rather than cracks when you put it in, making the whole process go more smoothly.
