Recipe Developing

My recipe for Sushi Toast came about because I had a LOT of avocados ripe all right at once. I just dug around in the fridge and pulled things together. The first version was not great, but I kept adding and tweaking, and even taking away. Now I think it’s perfect and I make it just about the same every time. Basically, I did what a recipe developer does, made a version, and kept working on it until it was right.

Ingredients for sushi toast.

What you need to make sushi toast

To make my version you will need:

  • toast, your favorite bread, I love seedy bread, especially if it has sesame seeds in it or on it
  • cream cheese
  • avocado
  • cucumber
  • sriracha
  • mayonnaise can be kewpie mayonnaise or regular (I am a use-what-you-have girl!)
  • furikake flakes
  • lime or lemon juice if you’re worried about the avocado browning before it gets eaten

Alternate Sushi Toast Ingredient Ideas:

  • crispy onions
  • thinly sliced sushi-grade salmon
  • sesame seeds
  • flying fish roe or salmon roe
  • flaked smoked salmon
  • green onions
  • mango
  • wasabi
  • soy sauce
  • Tajin

What is Furikake?

Furikake is a flavor blend made up of sesame seeds, dried fish flakes, toasted seaweed, and salt. But in the store, I have seen many variations on this main theme. Use Furikake (fur-a-ka-kay) wherever and whenever you need an absolute dash of flavor, on rice, in sushi, on popcorn, and so on.

What kind of bread?

I really like something sturdy like Daves Killer Bread, as long as it has seeds in it and on it I am good. But save yourself a trip to the store and just use what you have on hand, even white bread works! Thick slices of fresh Sourdough bread toasted up is delicious as well. And do I have to say it? Toasted Japanese Milk Bread also works amazingly well for sushi toast. And if you need bread and you don’t have any here’s a recipe for Peasant Bread you can whip up easily. And slice it up the next day!

You shouldn’t have leftovers from this recipe because it’s meant to be made and eaten right away. If you plan to make it in advance be sure to just toast the bread and smear it with cream cheese and store it in an air-tight container until ready to assemble. Slice the avocado right before serving and add the toppings as well.
