Bacon. Anyone who knows me even the least bit knows that I adore bacon. Sometimes, a little too much. So why not put it in sushi? Seriously… bacon in sushi is amazing. My family knows that if there’s bacon in something, there’s a good chance I’ll eat it. (Gah! So bad for me, I know. Honestly, I’m working on the whole healthy thing. Slowly, very slowly, but I am.)

Obviously, if I find a sushi roll involving bacon, I’m going to try to replicate it. Such was the case with the “Hog Tied King” roll from Tex Wasabi’s. The cool cream cheese cut through the saltiness of the bacon and salmon, and the Sriracha gave it just the right kick. To top it off, the fried and green onions over the sweet chili sauce gave it an unexpected sort of Vietnamese twist – very delicious. Perhaps not the most traditional roll, (but really, it’s not like many of the ones I make are) but certainly a scrumptious combination.

Ingredients
  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 12 pieces bacon
  • 6 oz sashimi-grade salmon
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 6 stalks green onion
  • 2 tbsp fried onions
  • 1 cup sweet chili sauce
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Cook bacon until crispy.
  3. Wash the green onion, cut the long green stalks off of the white bulbs. Discard the white bulbs.
  4. Chop the green onions into thin circles.
  5. Using a sharp knife, slice the salmon into 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick slices against the grain of the fillet.
  6. Cut each of these slices in half lengthwise, so they are about 1/2 inch wide.
  7. Roll the sushi inside-out, using two pieces of bacon, salmon, cream cheese, and about a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce as your fillings.
  8. Drizzle a tablespoon of sweet chili sauce over the roll, then sprinkle with chopped green onions and fried onions.
