Hover over salmon rice bowl. Sushi stacks have entered the building.

The rice, seafood and vegetarian dish has become a trending meal on TikTok, with millions of viewers seeing that they can make sushi recipes at home even if they don’t have a proper sushi kit.

Gina Homolka, author of “The Skinnytaste Cookbook”, introduced sushi stacks to the video sharing app in August 2020, and the custom cooking method has slowly grown in popularity as users continue to combine fish or shellfish with common sushi ingredients.

Yumna Jawad, the founder of Feel Good Foodie, is one of many TikTok content creators who took inspiration from Homolka.

She came up with a sushi shrimp stack recipe made with rice, mashed avocados, and cucumber, and her video, which has been viewed more than 2.1 million times since April, has brought the layered stacking dish back into the limelight.

“This is such an easy way to make a sushi-like dish at home,” Jawad told Fox News Digital.

She continued, “It takes about 15 minutes to make and it’s so quick and delicious.”

5. Place a plate on top of the measuring cup before turning it over with the plate right side up on a table. The food in the cup should form and maintain its stack shape when the cup is removed. If necessary, use only gentle taps and movements on this step.

6. Sprinkle the sushi stack with sesame seeds and other toppings, if desired.

“The final output looks like a fancy meal, but the input to make the sushi stack is really minimal and so customizable,” Jawad told Fox News Digital. “It reminds me of a California roll with shrimp instead of crab.”

The end product should be rice, seafood, and a vegetable staple that tastes like sushi, but doesn't require nearly as much work to make.

Alternatively, Jawad said her sushi staple recipe can be made with tuna, fruit, or brown rice. She also recommends pairing it with furikake seasoning, rice paper, or nori seaweed for extra sushi flavors.
