Sushi bake, according to many, is “deconstructed” sushi that’s prepared and baked like the classic casserole. It usually consists of Japanese rice, mayonnaise, fresh salmon, kani strips, and nori.

If you’ve been itching to make one yourself, we’ve found a recipe from Cookpad that uses crabmeat instead of salmon, check it out below!

3 cups cooked sushi rice
1 lb lump crabmeat (or cooked shrimp or sautéed scallops)
1 lb imitation crab sticks, chopped
1 cup Japanese mayonnaise
2 stalks green onion, thinly chopped
Wasabi paste or Sriracha sauce, to taste and optional
2 tbsp Tobikko or roe, optional
1 jar Nori furikaki seaweed flakes
1 pack seaweed sheets, cut into rectangles


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F
  2. Combine lump crabmeat, crab sticks, Japanese mayo, green onion, wasabi/sriracha, and fish roe.
  3. Place the cooked sushi rice and press onto a 9×13 pan
  4. Sprinkle 1/2 jar of the Nori Furikake onto the rice
  5. Spread the crab mixture on top
  6. Sprinkle remaining Nori Furikake on top of this mixture
