I took a class several years ago to learn how to make sushi rolls at home. Since I now blog and research many restaurant recipes, I realize that there are very few sushi recipes available online. I now try to recreate sushi recipes that I enjoy from a variety of sushi restaurants. These recipes are based solely on the restaurant menu descriptions, so they should be a close replica if not exact. The 412 roll is on the menu at Tsunami Sushi in Lafayette, LA. I love the colorfulness of this roll with the tuna and avocado topping! And the spicy crabmeat and crunchy shrimp filling make each bite so incredibly delicious!
The 412 roll is what is known as an inside out roll, meaning the main ingredients are tucked inside of the nori sheet and the rice is on the outside. Spicy crabmeat, avocado, and ahi tuna top this roll. Plate this roll on top of some delicious ponzu or soy sauce with wasabi paste and enjoy!
For those who have a mental block about nori (seaweed paper), you can always substitute the nori with soy paper. When I first started eating sushi years ago, I will admit I had a mental block about nori (seaweed paper) and thankfully I’ve since overcome that mental block. But for beginner sushi eaters, soy paper is a great option. You can find both nori and soy paper at your local Asian market.
If you are hosting a sushi party at home, this roll should definitely be a part of your menu. Making sushi rolls at home can be intimidating, but if I can do it, anyone can do it. A bamboo sushi mat, plastic wrap, and a good sharp knife are a must. No doubt, your guests will be extremely impressed and will ask for the recipe or even better, for you to cater their next event.
