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) 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.  Luckily, Sushify sushi making kits have everything we need.

For our sushi making kit review, we received a large sushi box from Sushify with 12 recipes.  This box contained the following:

  • Fish: Tuna Block, Smoked Salmon (for nigiri), Yellowtail Hamachi, Yellowfin Tuna, BBQ Uni, Crabsticks, Shrimp, Smoked Salmon (for rolls), Tempura Shrimp, Hokkaido Scallops, Masago, Yellowfin Tuna (for handrolls)

  • Vegetables: Carrot, Cucumber, Avocado, Asparagus, Chives

  • Other Ingredients: Sesame Seeds, Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Nori, Siracha, Mayo, Unagi Sauce, Wasabi, Vinegar (for rice), Rice, Pickled Ginger, Dried Mushrooms, Inari Packets, Dashi Powder, Black Sea Salt, Togarashi Pepper

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.  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.

Our sushi recipes included:

  • Seared Tuna, Smoked Salmon, Yellowtail Hamachi, Asparagus Nigiri – makes 10 nigiri sushi
  • 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 large Sushify box contains 12 recipes and makes 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!

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.  We really loved both the Seared Tuna and Yellowtail Hamachi Nigiri as well as the Spicy Yellowfin Tuna Roll. Save 10% with code MEALFINDS10 >>

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.

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.

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 met to feed a crowd.

Sushify says that this large 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 >>

Sushi Making Kit by Sushify Review: Bottom Line

sushify-reviews-sushi-rolls

Sushify is a monthly sushi making kit subscription box that any sushi lover will enjoy.  In each monthly box, Sushify sends everything you need to make sushi at home including the highest quality fish, rice, spices, sauces, step-by-step recipe cards, and essential supplies like a bamboo rolling mat.

We love the sushi-grade fish, generous portions, and easy-to-follow recipe cards.  We also love that you don’t have to make all of the sushi right away and that you can spread out the sushi experience throughout the month.

And while you can’t select your recipes right now and there are no gifting options, Sushify is working on those.  We hope the gifting option is ready before the holidays as Sushify would make a unique gift and experience for friends and family.

Sushify makes learning to make sushi at home easy and fun from sushi rolls to handrolls, negamaki, and nigiri, each month is a different experience and an opportunity to learn new skills. We recommend Sushify for anyone who loves sushi and think that it would be a fun dinner party experience and a unique gift.
