  4. Bake:

  5. Serve:

  • Toppings: Experiment with other toppings like tobiko (fish roe), tempura flakes, or fresh herbs.
  • Serving: Serve with seaweed sheets for making mini sushi wraps or simply enjoy it as a casserole.

How to Store Salmon Sushi Bake

  • Refrigeration: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheating: Reheat individual servings in the microwave until warm. If the bake seems dry, add a small splash of water before reheating.
