Shrimp Tempura Rolls (Godzilla Rolls)

Shrimp Tempura Rolls are by far my favorite sushi roll that I can make at home. Cream cheese, avocado, and shrimp all rolled into a fried roll with spicy mayo. Perfection!

  • Bamboo sushi mat


  • Sushi Rice click HERE
  • 1 sheet Nori, dry roasted seaweed
  • 3 pieces shrimp tempura prepared, I bought mine frozen from the store and baked them
  • 2 slices avocado
  • 3 teaspoons cream cheese (use the block cream cheese and cut into a couple long, rectangular slices)
  • ½ cup flour
  • tempura batter
  • oil for frying

For the Spicy Mayo:


  • Lay the bamboo sushi rolling mat on a cutting board with bamboo strips going horizontally from you. Cover the bamboo with plastic wrap. Put a sheet of dried seaweed on top of the mat, shiny side down. Spread sushi rice on top of the seaweed and press firmly.

  • Turn the sushi layer over so that the seaweed is on top. Place shrimp tempura, avocado and cream cheese lengthwise on the seaweed. Roll the bamboo mat forward, pressing the ingredients inside the cylinder-shaped sushi (the KEY is to roll it TIGHT). Press the bamboo mat firmly with hands, then remove the rolled sushi. For further rolling instruction, see the video below.

  • Roll the roll in flour then dip entire rice roll in tempura batter and deep fry (oil heated to 350-degrees) for about 3 minutes or until batter turns crispy and golden brown (you DON'T need to do this in a deep fryer. You can just do about 1/2 c. - 1 c. of oil in a frying pan and keep turning the roll until it is golden brown on all sides). Remove from oil and let cool for a few minutes.
