Calling all Star Wars fans! Do you like sushi? Well, then we’ve got the recipe for you!
Grogu, better known as “Baby Yoda,” has been spotted all over the Disney Parks since his debut in Jon Favreau’s hit series The Mandalorian on Disney+. We’ve seen him on hats, thermoses — he even has his own memes:
You love him? We know (and we love him, too).
The Instagram account for restaurant @wavemontdora recently posted a video of their “Baby Yoda” sushi roll, and we’ve got the recipe for you!
First things first: ingredients!
- green food coloring
- seasoned rice vinegar (or rice vinegar, salt, and sugar)
- caviar (optional)
- a sharp knife
*Make sure your seaweed is specifically for sushi — it should say “for sushi making” or something similar on the package.
For the pink “Baby Yoda” ears, cut your salmon into long strips with one side sloping down (this will be the tapered end of Grogu’s ears)! Do this twice — once for each ear!
Wrap your salmon in seaweed tightly, leaving ends exposed.
Let’s bring in some rice! Pro-tip: make sure to add seasoned rice vinegar to your cooked rice (or a substitute of rice vinegar, salt, and sugar). Mix into rice at a 1:6 ratio, then add green food coloring! Pack a small layer of green rice around each of the “ears,” once again leaving those pink ends exposed.
Now, take a large amount of rice, slightly larger than Grogu’s ears, and shape it into a thick, long column. This will become The Child’s face!
Add your ears to either side of this face — pointy ends facing outwards — and wrap the whole thing in seaweed.
May the force be with you as you slice straight across the sushi roll to reveal “Baby Yoda!” But wait…
…where is his adorable smile? Take some of your remaining seaweed and cut out his facial features (don’t forget those cute wrinkles on his forehead)!
Step 8: If you want those deep, sparkly Grogu eyes, grab some caviar and gently apply it to his face. If you don’t mind the look of the sushi paper, you can totally stick with cutting out eyes from that, instead!
Isn’t that a cute roll of sushi? We have to admit, this idea was out of this galaxy! Thanks so much to @wavemountdora for bringing this fun idea to life.
