Sushi Making Kit by Sushify Review
Sushify works with partners all over the world to source the best fish along with fresh, organic vegetables so that you can make authentic sushi at home. Plus, with all of the sushi supplies included, like seaweed sheets and a bamboo mat, and recipes created by sushi chefs you have everything you need for a fun night (or 2 or 3) of sushi making.
Every month is a different experience filled with new recipes, ingredients, and supplies so that you will never get bored.
We were beyond excited to experience Sushify and make our own sushi at home. We love sushi and eat it at least twice a month, but have never made it at home.
For me, it seems a little intimidating – finding all of the ingredients, the right supplies, and recipes – and like a lot of work.
For our second Sushify sushi kit review, we tried the Tuna Lover’s Box. As a family, we love all things Tuna and were super excited to try this sushi kit. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
This box contains a huge block (16 oz) of sushi-grade tuna, along with almost everything you need to make 4 recipes or around 40 pieces of sushi. All we had to buy was a cucumber and scallions.
Along with the large block of tuna our box included sushi rice, soy sauce, sesame oil, sushi rice vinegar, ponzu sauce, sriracha, mayonnaise, Kombu, sesame seeds, Nori sheets, wasabi, black lava sea salt, togarashi pepper, sea salt, and a bamboo mat. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
The recipes in this box included
Ponzu Marinated Tuna Nigiri
Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice
Spicy Yellowfin Tuna Roll
In addition to the recipes, Sushify always includes instructions on How To Make Sushi Rice and How To Wrap a Bamboo Mat.
Note: Recipes cards are no longer included in Sushify sushi kits. You will either need to bring them up on your phone/tablet or print out the recipes. We printed them out as it was easier for my son and me to both make sushi at the same time.
When your box arrives unpack the ingredients and store the fish in the refrigerator if you are going to make sushi in 1 or 2 days or in the freezer if you are going to make it later in the week.
We decided to make all four recipes in one night and set aside about an hour and a half to complete everything.
TIP 1: You don’t have to make all of your sushi right away! Follow the instructions when you receive your box, storing the ingredients in the freezer, fridge, and pantry. You can make half of the sushi one night and the other half the next night or make 2 or 3 recipes every night the whole week (or month!).
TIP 2: Making sushi rice takes around an hour. You have to rinse the rinse, then cook for about 30 minutes, mix in the vinegar, and then let the rice cool. Next time, I will make the rice the night before to save some time.
Our two favorites from this box were the Ponzu Marinated Tuna Nigiri and the Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice. The Ponzu Marinated Tuna Nigiri was packed with flavor thanks to the ponzu, soy sauce, sesame oil, and scallion marinade. We let it sit for 20 min or so and then poured the extra over the nigiri before serving.
We also loved the taste of The Spicy Tuna Cripsy Rice and the different textures made for a wonderful crunchy bite. We added a bit more sriracha to give it a nice kick and recommend this if you like a little heat. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
The Tuna Tekkamaki was simple and tasty. We didn’t get pickled ginger in this box and think that a little would’ve brightened up this classic.
The Spicy Yellowfin Tuna Roll, another classic, is one of our favorites and as recommended above, we added more sriracha to spice it up a bit more than what is in the recipe. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
Sushify Review: Mega Sushi Kit
For our first sushi-making kit review, we received a Mega Sushi Box from Sushify with 12 recipes.
This box is contained 12 types of fish and makes over 100 pieces of sushi!
When your Sushify box arrives, open it as soon as you can. Inside, you will find 2-3 smaller boxes that are clearly labeled with instructions. Unpack the frozen box and place those items in the freezer. Unpack the rest of the ingredients storing some in your refrigerator and some in the pantry until you are ready to make sushi.
TIP: You don’t have to make all of your sushi right away! Follow the instructions when you receive your box, storing the ingredients in the freezer, fridge, and pantry. You can make half of the sushi one night and the other half the next night or make 2 or 3 recipes every night the whole week (or month!).
Within your box, you will have step-by-step recipe cards including How To Make Sushi Rice and How To Wrap Your Bamboo Mat (Cards are no longer included. Recipes are found online).
In addition, you will have access to the Sushify website with helpful tips, tricks, and videos to help answer all of your sushi making questions and support you along the way. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
Spicy Yellowfin Tuna Roll – makes 2 sushi rolls (16 pieces)
Dragon Roll – makes 2 sushi rolls (16 pieces)
Spicy Crab and Shrimp Roll – makes 2 sushi rolls (16 pieces)
Alaska Smoked Salmon Roll – makes 2 sushi rolls (16 pieces)
Asparagus Carrot Roll – makes 2 sushi rolls (16 pieces)
Temaki Handrolls – makes 8 handrolls
Featured Starter: Udon Noodle Soup – serves 4
As mentioned above, the Mega Sushify box contains 15 recipes and makes over 100 pieces of sushi plus the soup. This is A LOT of sushi! Since we are a family of 3, we decided to make the recipes over the course of 3 nights.
Unlike traditional meal kits, Sushify’s sushi making kit ingredients will stay fresh throughout the month, with the exception of the vegetables, as the fish can be stored in the freezer and all other items are shelf-stable.
So you can make a couple of recipes every night for 3-4 days, make them all in one night, or make them throughout the month by just adding a fresh vegetable as needed. It’s up to you! Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
The first night we made the rice, the Seared Tuna, Smoked Salmon, Yellowtail Hamachi, and Asparagus Nigiri, the Spicy Yellowfin Tuna Roll, and the Spicy Crab and Shrimp Roll.
As I had never made sushi before, this was a night filled with figuring things out, how to make the rice, how to cover the bamboo mat, how to make the rice “footballs” for the nigiri, how to roll a tuna roll without everything falling out. It was a lot of fun and we learned so much.
The fish was clearly sushi-grade, the highest quality, and none of our fish tasted fishy. This is not your average meal kit fish assortment and you should feel confident that with Sushify you will receive great fish.
TIP: If you plan to make sushi several nights in a row, I recommend doubling the rice recipe and making a big batch that you can use so that you don’t have to make rice every night as this takes about an hour.
The second night we made the Dragon Roll, the Alaska Smoked Salmon Roll, and the Asparagus Carrot Roll. The rolls were much easier to make this night and took far less time because we were using the rice we made the night before.
The Dragon Roll is marked as “difficult” in the recipe guide and it was challenging to make it look like the picture, but regardless of how it looked, it tasted delicious. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
On the third night, we had ingredients left for the Temaki Handrolls and Udon Noodle Soup. We decided to use the Tuna and Scallops for rolls instead of handrolls because our son wanted to make them on his own. He also helped make the soup.
For these rolls, we added mayo and Siracha to give them a kick, added avocado to the Tuna roll, and cucumber to the Scallop roll along with the caviar. They were tasty! It was fun to take everything that we learned the first two nights and create our own rolls. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
We love Udon Noodle Soup and while the noodles were very fresh, we were disappointed by the flavor of this soup as it tasted bland. We would’ve also liked more shrimp tempura as we only received 2 with our box and this soup clearly is meant to feed a crowd.
Sushify says that this Mega Box can feed 4-8 people, but I think it should be more like 6-8 in one sitting or 2-4 people over the course of 2-3 meals. There is a generous amount of food in this box, almost 100 pieces of sushi plus a soup, and were delighted to make sushi at home 3 nights in a row! Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>
