Godzilla Rolls are by far my favorite sushi roll that I can make at home. It is a combination of a few different rolls from different restaurants. It has all my favorite stuff: cream cheese, avocado, shrimp.. and the best part is… it’s FRIED
Another great thing that I love about these Godzilla Rolls is that they doesn’t contain any raw seafood so I am not afraid to make them at home. I will only eat raw fish if I am at a trusted restaurant, I am pretty picky about my raw seafood and I don’t dare to prepare it myself unless I know that I am getting it from ocean to my kitchen in less than 12 hours… so as you can probably guess with me living in BOISE, that doesn’t happen too often. Oh, and probably the BEST thing about this is.. you can make about 10 of these for the price you would pay for ONE at a restaurant!
This recipe seems more complicated than it really is. Don’t be scared. Especially if you have made California Rolls, you will find that these are easy. Once you get the hang of rolling sushi rolls, it’s really no biggie.
Instead of battering my own tempura shrimp, I just bought the pre-made stuff in the freezer section of the grocery store. If you want to be fancy you can batter your own but that is too much work for me. If you don’t like battered shrimp, feel free to use just regular, cooked shrimp. Do whatever you like best.
I realize this isn’t going to be a “family rotation” meal for any of you– but if you have an upcoming anniversary or just feel in the mood to make something different, this is a great one! I love the spicy mayo drizzled over the top. YUM.
