Godzilla Roll is the best sushi roll you can make at home. Loaded with crunchy shrimp tempura, cucumber, crab sticks and cream cheese.


  • Sushi Rice (2 cups, uncooked) click HERE
  • Shrimp tempura ( 8 pieces) click HERE
  • Imitation crab sticks-8
  • Cucumber or avocado (cut into fine sticks)-1
  • Cream cheese- 5 oz
  • Toasted Nori seaweed-4

For Serving:


  • Heat enough oil ( about 1 cup) to 350 F / 175 C in a large skillet to deep fry sushi rolls.
  • Place the bamboo sushi rolling mat on the table and cover with plastic wrap. Put a nori sheet in the middle of the mat, shiny side down. 
  • Keep a bowl filled with water nearby. Drench your hands to prevent rice from sticking and take a handful of rice. Spread evenly to cover the nori sheet. Carefully flip the nori over.
  • Place 2 shrimp tempura, 2 cucumber sticks, 2 crab sticks and 2 tablespoons of cream cheese lengthwise on the seaweed. Roll the bamboo mat forward, keeping the filling inside with your fingers. Remove from the mat and place on a tray. Repeat the same with the remaining nori sheets.
  • Use the leftover batter from the shrimp tempura.  Dip each roll in the tempura batter and deep fry for about 2-3 minutes, turning the roll until it is golden brown on all sides. Remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. 
  • Cut a godzilla roll into 5-6 pieces, using a very sharp knife.
  • Drizzle with spicy mayo or enjoy with yum yum sauce.
