Sea bass sushi is best served with just sea salt and lemon juice. Make the sushi rice with 3 ingredients with this simple recipe.

“The obvious leftovers dish we will make from the barramundi is the fish taco!” That was the plan, but after making the dish over at The Journey, there was about 3 oz. left. So instead, I made some sushi and sashimi. 

With all Leftovers posts, we create a fun and tasty recipe and draw inspirations from the traditional concept. Please take the time to look at The Journey to appreciate where it all came from: Barramundi

Sushi, will be part of The Journey one day, but for now, we will be putting it here in the leftovers.

When I was watching Salt Fat Acid Heat on Netflix, Samin Nosrat visits Japan and goes to a site where they mine for salt in dried up seaweed. Soon after they ate sashimi with those salts and I instantly wanted to try it. I looked online, and ordered the Amabito No Moshio, seaweed salt. 10.5 ounces, $40 with s&h, for SALT!

I’ve been waiting to get my hand on some white fish, so I can experience what Samin Norsrat tasted. With lime juice and seaweed salt, you do not need soy sauce for this! It is not too salty, it has an umami taste to it, and it’s very flaky. Do not use just your table salt when eating sushi or sashimi. Sea salt will suffice.

Sea bass sushi with lemon or lime with a little bit of sea salt is the perfect way to eat this fish. No soy sauce.

Sea Bass Sushi

Sea bass sushi is best served with just sea salt and lemon juice. Make the sushi rice with 3 ingredients with this simple recipe.

prep time: 5 minscook time: total time: 5 mins

ingredients

  • 3 oz. sea bass
  • 1/4 lime wedge
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 2 tbsp sushi rice vinegar

instructions

  1. Filet the skin off. Cut the fish at an angle roughly 1/2 inch thick
  2. Squeeze lime wedge on the fish and then sprinkle salt.
Tips
  1. For sushi, mix the rice and sushi rice vinegar so that the rice is coated.(3 cups of rice to 1/2 cup vinegar) Once cooled, form oval shaped rice, roughly 2 tbsp, and then place the sea bass on top
  2. You can use lemon instead of rice. Lemon is what is traditionally used, but since we had leftovers from The Journey, we used them here.
