Kani Maki (Crab Stick Sushi Roll) Recipe

In addition to the ingredients listed below, you also need a sushi bamboo mat (makisu; 巻簾), cling wrapped for easy cleaning.

Serves: 3 maki rolls (each roll cut into 6 pieces)

Prep Time: 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Japanese short-grain rice + sushi vinegar (to taste)
  • 3 pieces 19x10cm nori (seaweed) sheet
  • 4 crab sticks microwave for 2 mins; peel each crab stick to half (lengthwise)
  • Japanese mayonnaise to taste
  • pickled ginger, shoyu (Japanese light soy sauce) & wasabi

Directions

  1. Follow the sushi rice recipe to cook the rice. Divide into three equal portions.
  2. Place nori sheet (rough side up) on bamboo mat. Place one portion of rice on nori, distributing them in a flat layer across the nori, leaving a 5cm gap on top.
  3. Spread a thin strip of mayonnaise horizontally across the middle of the rice, then line the crab sticks across over the mayonnaise.
  4. Using a firm grip, make the maki by rolling the bamboo mat tightly halfway, then continue to roll until the maki is completed.
  5. Using a sharp knife moistened with water, trim both ends of the maki and then make a cut right in the middle of the roll. Further cut each half into three equal pieces. Serve maki with pickled ginger, soy sauce & wasabi at the side.

Noob Cook Tip:
Typically, nori (seaweed) sheets come in 19×20 cm sizes. By folding and cutting it in half, it becomes the ideal size for maki (19×10 cm).

      Use only sushi rice, short-grain or sticky rice.

    I reccomend everyone to get sushi mold from daiso, its only $2 plus it makes sushi faster and neater. More efficient. The bamboo mat doesnt work well for me.

    Hi, so does the original kani maki have no mayonnaise?

      I have eaten both kani maki with or without mayonnaise (without seems much more common, and also if you take out, it keeps better). As for the original historic trail, I have no idea. It’s totally up to you to include it or not.
