Easy to make using pre-grilled BBQ eel

Adaptable and customizable


– Grilled BBQ Eel (Unagi) – Sushi Rice – Rice Vinegar – Salt and Sugar – Nori – Sweet Soy Glaze (Tare): use homemade or store bought


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add all the ingredients for the eel sauce. Cook until the sauce has reduced to half, about 15 minutes.


Put pre-grilled eel on a baking sheet and broil it in the oven for 6-8 minutes. Then, cut it into diagonal slices and lightly brush it with the tare sauce.


Wet your hands with water to prevent the rice from sticking. Take a small amount of seasoned sushi rice and shape it into an oblong mound, about the size of your index finger.


Place a slice of pre-grilled unagi on top of the rice. Lay a strip of nori around the center of the rice mound.

Serve & Enjoy!

Serve the nigiri with pickled ginger and soy sauce. ❤️
