Spicy Crab Roll

  • Author: chefjar
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


Spicy crab roll sushi is creamy, spicy and delicious! Shredded crab sticks are seasoned with sriracha spicy mayo, then all wrapped in nori and sushi rice.


  • 1 cup short-grain sushi rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sushi vinegar*

For the Spicy Crab Roll

For the Spicy Mayo

  • 3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1-2 teaspoons sriracha sauce


Sushi Rice

  • Cook the sushi rice according to the package instructions. Once it is cooked, allow to cool slightly.
  • Mix in the sushi vinegar when the rice is still warm.

Spicy Mayo

  • In a small bowl combine mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce. Adjust the amount of Sriracha to your liking. Keep aside.

Spicy Kani Roll

  • Using a fork  or your hands, shred imitation crab meat. Add the spicy mayo and mix well.
  • Halve each nori sheet to get four pieces, using scissors.
  • Cover the bamboo mat with plastic wrap. Place half of a nori sheet (shiny side facing down) on top of the mat.
  • Spread about 3/4 sushi rice over the nori in an even layer. When working with rice, keep a bowl of water nearby. Dip your hands to prevent rice from sticking to your hands.
  • Sprinkle the rice with black sesame seeds and flip it over, the rice facing down.
  • Place the spicy crab mixture in the center of the nori sheet.  Roll the mat away from  you, pressing the rice. Roll until the ends meet.
  • Transfer the roll to a cutting board and cut it into 7-8 pieces using a wet knife.
  • Drizzle with spicy mayo sauce if desired. Enjoy!


* You can make your own sushi vinegar. Simply mix together 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
