Panda & Penguin Sushi

I love making sushi lately, simply cause they are relatively fast to make and I can present them without the side dishes. I've made quite a few so far, and still have ideas in my notes for many more, so you'll be seeing more of them, lol. What I've actually done after taking photos was to cling wrap the sushi, and kept them in a air-tight container in the fridge, so I can pack them for my boys' bentos for school the following day.
My favourite has to be these pandas, have ideas for more pandas sushi, will work on them soon. Maybe sushi is not the correct name for them, they are more like onigiri, but their size are small like sushi, whatever, lol.

They are very easy to make, just using two ingredients - rice and nori.

I added lightly salted flaked salmon for the fillings. The recipe for the salmon is similar to the salmon soboro recipe here, but I added slightly less salt, as my boys will be dipping the pandas in soy sauce.

The next sushi I did were these penguins sushi, similar ingredients to the panda, with the addition of carrots.

My favourite is the one in the middle front row, who looks like he's sliding. >.<

That's all for today's post, I'm hoping to get two more Halloween creations done next week, and also blog about them before Halloween is here.


  1. I know my cousin would LOVE the penguin ones!

    1. Tk u! Congrats, I saw u won the cookbook!

  2. These are so tiny and cute!

  3. Oh gosh! So tiny cute and I love both Panda & Penguins ^_^

  4. Love both versions, they are adorable and I need to try/learn to make penguin sushi one of these days!:)

  5. Hi Ming, sorry if this is a silly question but how do you get the carrot to stick to the rice?
    I've just made the piggy spam today for my son, cuteness overload. One of the teachers took a photo of his lunch !! Thank you!

    1. Awwww, tk u Safira for letting me know, I'm happy to hear that. I just dab on some mayonnaise so they will stick as we are having these at home. If you want them to be more secure, you can blanch the carrots till soft and use pasta sticks to attach them to the rice.
