Baked Sushi Cups

Baked Sushi Cups

These fun-sized baked sushi cups are perfect as a light bite or snack. Each cup is filled with tender salmon, sushi rice, and roasted seaweed. What makes the salmon extra special is the addition of Sesame Miso Shake, which provides extra umami and color.

Sesame Miso Shake is an East Asian-inspired blend that combines umami-rich miso, nutty sesame, mild chile flavor and a touch of MSG to create savory sensations.
