Allison Day


This roll is a wonderful snack roll, perfect for game day! Another of our wonderful readers, Ralph Whitbeck, came up with the idea for this roll (Thanks, Ralph! 😀 )

We had both spicy and BBQ Buffalo wings when we made this roll. We got them from Domino’s Pizza, but you can get your favorite wings or even make your own! (There’s a good recipe on Yahoo! Food if you want to try them!) I was planning on making them, but it turns out that someone is already bringing wings to the Super Bowl party that Son and I are going to tomorrow, so instead I made another batch of brownies for the party and bought wings for the sushi instead.

We thought the BBQ Buffalo wings tasted the best, although if you like the spicy-sour taste then you might prefer the spicy wings. We also tried both ranch and blue cheese dressing in the sushi, and found that we didn’t really prefer one over the other. Also, we sprinkled a little seasoned salt on the sushi and liked the extra kick it gave.

Also, you might want to try making some Inari Zushi (a.k.a. footballs! 🙂 ) They taste really good with the Buffalo wings… a nice mix of sweet and savory flavor.

NOTE: For anyone outside the United States who isn’t familiar with the Super Bowl, it is one of the biggest eating days that we have! This is the day where the two top football teams (American football, not soccer or futbol!) play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. This year is Super Bowl XLI – the 41st annual game! For more information about the Super Bowl, you can go to this article on Wikipedia.

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 12 buffalo chicken wings
  • 6 celery ribs
  • blue cheese or ranch dressing, whichever you prefer
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Remove the chicken from the bones. Discard the chicken bones.
  3. Roll the sushi. For your fillings, use the chicken, celery and your preferred dressing.
  4. Serve with beer and a football game. Enjoy!

    Suggestion for you and Son… Would it be possible to create a next and previous link in the pictures pop-up? Happy Super Bowl!


  2. Ralph Whitbeck says:

    HAHA they look great. We are making sushi tonight for Super Bowl…no pizza or wings for us just some spicy rolls and beer for us! Glad you liked them.

  3. Ralph Whitbeck says:

    You know the thought about how sushi tastes better the closer you get to the ocean? The same is probably true for a Chicken Wing Roll…the closer you are to Buffalo, NY the better it tastes 😉

  4. joey says:

    haha that inari is awesome! very clever.

    we are making sushi tonight also since we have a friend visiting. i think we’ll steal your idea. 🙂

  5. Yvo says:

    Mmm, that looks so delicious! I actually wound up deep frying 15 lbs. of wings (and have another 5 yet to be fried… my arteries beg me to stop!) yesterday and just “winging” the recipes… hahaha. Mmmm, rice with chicken wing meat…. maybe I will do that…. yummy!!!

  6. Allison says:

    Tim – Yeppers, great idea! We’ll try to get that up as soon as we can! Happy Super Bowl!

    Ralph – Thanks! Yay for sushi at Super Bowl parties! 😀 Hehe maybe I should go to Buffalo and try making the roll again! By the way, thanks for the SushiDay post on your website!!!

    joey – Thanks! Feel free to use any of the ideas on here… that’s the point of SushiDay! 😀

    Yvo – Wow… that’s a lot of wings! Can we come over? Hehe just kidding! Yep… it’s good!

  7. Robb says:

    Wow, those look so good. I may just have to try those for next Tuesday! My sushi day. Thanks for the great idea.

  8. Yvo says:

    Allison, please do. I still have wings left to eat (let’s say 2-3 lbs?) and we are bored senseless. I would love to share my leftovers as long as you don’t mind they’re leftover!

  9. Allison says:

    Robb – It was actually Ralph’s idea, but you’re welcome anyways! 😀

    Yvo – Hehe yum! If I lived in NY, I would be glad to! Unfortunately California is a little too far away… 🙁
