How to make sushi donuts

Just like the Ahi Pokè Bowl I saw sushi donuts a while ago on instagram. So if you like donuts and sushi you will absolutely love sushi donuts or if you prefer, doughnuts!  Although it has nothing to do with the sweet donuts you have with your afternoon coffee. It’s actual sushi shaped like a donut. Made with sushi rice, fresh fish, a spicy avocado filling and all the toppings you can think of!

It’s a lot of fun preparing the sushi donuts! Perfect idea for a date night or for your next girls night. You can get creative with your toppings and make awesome creations. You can prepare everything in advance, cook the sushi rice and chop all the toppings. Just make sure you use absolutely fresh fish like tuna or salmon. A big bonus is also a good donut mould. I have non-stick silicone moulds which work perfectly for me!

If you like sushi, you will absolutely love these impressive-looking sushi donuts with your favourite choice of toppings. It’s a lot of fun to make and so yummy!

Servings: 4 people
  • 400 gram sushi rice
  • 5 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 4 tsp grape sugar
  • 200 gram sushi tuna
  • 200 gram sushi salmon
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • 2 small cucumbers
  • 1 package cress (preferably shiso cress)
  • 5 tbsp black sesame
  • 1 glass gari (sushi ginger)
  • wasabi
  • soy sauce
  • 6 nori sheets
  • trout caviar
  • salt
  • 1 lime (juice)
  1. Prepare the sushi rice according to packet instructions. In a big bowl mix the rice vinegar and grape sugar and add the cooked sushi rice. Gently mix and let it cool down. 

  2. For the avocado filling: crush the avocado until smooth and season to taste with wasabi and lime juice. Put the avocado filling in a piping bag and let it chill until you are ready with the rest of the preparations. 

  3. Wash and prepare all the toppings. Cut the fish, chop the radishes, cucumbers and all your other favourite toppings. Cut nori sheets into squares.

  4. Shape your sushi doughnuts: (If you don't have a non-stick mould lightly coat the doughnut pan with oil.) Fill up your moulds half with sushi rice, press down with your hands and add the wasabi-avocado filling. Then top up with sushi rice and press down. Turn the silicone mould over a plate and transfer each rice doughnut to the center of a nori sheet.

  5. Now decorate your sushi donuts with your favourite toppings and serve with gari, soy sauce and wasabi.
