Sushi is a delicious food—but it requires a lot of knowledge to make on your own! Luckily, we have a team of professionals that can do all the hard work for you. In addition, catering services offer so many different options for your next corporate event or birthday party. When it comes to planning your next big event in the New Year, there are a few cuisines you should consider that will really impress your guests.
One of the best choices for the New Year is to include sushi catering at your next big event. If you want to book sushi catering but have no idea what rolls would be best, we are here to help! We have compiled ten rolls perfect for your next catered event for 2023. So, let’s explore ten sushi rolls you’ll definitely want to order from a private sushi chef at your next catered event.
This sushi roll is made with tuna, salmon, and shrimp—also known as the “rainbow” of seafood. It’s often served with soy sauce and was initially called a California Roll because it was so popular in Los Angeles. This roll can be served as an appetizer or the main course, depending on how many people you’re serving; make sure to slice it up into bite-sized pieces!
The Futomaki roll is a Japanese sushi roll filled with vegetables and seafood. It is also known as the “fat roll” because of its fat appearance, made from a sheet of dried seaweed wrapped around rice, vegetables, and seafood. The Futomaki is a trendy sushi roll, especially in Japan, as it can be made to be savory or sweet, even into dessert rolls. This “fat roll” is a great choice that can be customized by our private sushi chef for your event.
If you like the taste of soft-shell crab but are looking for something more exciting than a plain crab roll, this is the perfect option for you. The spider roll is a California roll topped with soft-shell crab instead of imitation crab meat. It’s served with eel sauce and spicy mayonnaise on top. It’s a delicious twist on an American favorite, a sushi roll our sushi catering team has created dozens of times!
The Dragon Roll consists of cucumber, shrimp tempura, avocado, unagi or eel, and it is usually topped with masago, also known as fish roe, or sesame seeds. This roll originated in the 1960s in Japan and has since become one of America’s favorite appetizers at Japanese restaurants. It’s a simple, delicious, but an excellent option for your guests at your next big event. In our experience, it is a crowd favorite and known for its bold flavor!
Crunchy Shrimp Roll
If you’re craving a California roll but want to try something different than crab, give the crunchy shrimp roll a chance at your event. It’s visually stunning—with its bright colors and pretty sprinkles—and also light yet satisfying. The ingredients are simple: shrimp tempura (deep-fried), avocado slices, and eel sauce. It’s a delicious treat with a great blend of flavors to enjoy!
Spicy Salmon Roll
A spicy salmon roll is similar to a California roll with spicy sauce. If you’re looking for the best quality, ask your caterer what kind of salmon they use! With our catering services, our private sushi chef will always use the highest quality salmon to provide the highest quality taste and freshness for your event. This is a great roll with a pleasant but subtle kick for those who enjoy salmon.
Hand rolls are sushi rolls that are not cut into pieces. Instead, they’re eaten whole in one bite and wrapped in seaweed (nori) or rice paper. They are often made with raw fish and vegetables or other ingredients such as avocado, cucumber, crab meat, or tuna. Hand rolls can also be made with cooked shrimp or imitation crab meat if you’d like to avoid the raw fish element altogether; this version is commonly referred to as “cone” sushi because of its shape when it’s served on a plate. These are usually one of our clients’ favorites!
The Philadelphia roll is a creamy, savory sushi roll. It’s made with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and avocado. If you love creamy rolls, this one might be your favorite option on this list! However, if you don’t want salmon, it can be substituted for crab, shrimp, or even tuna. You can also ask your caterer to change the use of avocado to cucumber if you wish. With this roll, the possibilities are endless, but the taste is always delectable!
Vegetable Tempura Roll
Vegetable Tempura Roll is made with tempura shrimp, avocado, cucumber, and cream cheese and served with eel sauce. This is a popular choice for vegetarians—but you don’t have to be one to love this roll. The tempura batter gives it an airy fluffiness that complements the creamy avocado and cucumber inside. Plus, if you want something crunchy but don’t want to go full-on vegetarian with veggie sushi, this roll is also great with crab meat on top or tuna!
