Chirashi Sushi (we call it Chirashizushi in Japan) is a type of sushi.  Although sushi is often misunderstood as just nigiri (a small block of rice topped with a piece of raw fish) or those interestingly named rolls in the US, there are actually many types of sushi in Japan.



  1. Gather all the ingredients. Cook 2 cups of Japanese rice

  2. Place warm cooked rice in a large bowl (I use hangiri, a wooden flat bowl, for sushi). Add one packet of Chirashi Sushi Mix while the rice is hot.

  3. Fold everything together with the rice. Instead of “mixing”, you need to slice through rice using a rice paddle to separate the grains.

  4. Serve in a bowl or plate and garnish with Kinshi Tamago, ikura, and snow pea. You can put any topping you like, such as your favorite sashimi.
  5. Place shredded nori sheet on top right before you serve (otherwise it they will wilt quickly).
