Wagyu Gunkan Sushi Recipe


30 Mins


4 Persons

      • 2 ounces sushi rice, (about 1 cup)
      • 4 strips nori (pressed seaweed sheets), about 1 1/4 inches wide by 4 inches long
      • 4 quail eggs, separated
      • 4 ounces wagyu (ribeye preferred), minced
      • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
      • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
      • a dash of extra virgin olive oil
      • salt, to taste
      • chopped chives, to garnish
      • potato sticks, to garnish


      1. Divide rice (try our easy sushi rice recipe) into 4 portions and, using your hands, form small mounds 1″ tall by 2″ wide.
      2. Wrap a strip of nori around the circumference of each mound, leaving plenty of room on top for the nori to contain the filling.
      3. In a medium bowl, mix the wagyu, chives, soy sauce, lemon juice, olive oil and salt.
      4. Place 1/4 of the wagyu mixture on each piece of sushi.
      5. Top each with a quail egg yolk, potato sticks, chopped chives and sprinkle of sea salt.
