We recently came across a mouth watering recipe for BBQ Bacon Wrapped Sushi. Yes, you read that correctly! Don’t worry though, this is not served raw at all. This might seem like an intimidating recipe to anyone who isn’t a pro in the kitchen but we did it and it came out fantastic!
Let’s start with what you’ll need:
- 12 Slices of Bacon
- 500g Minced beef
- BBQ Rub
- 2 Sticks of Swiss cheese
- BBQ sauce
- Pickled jalapenos
- Roasted onions
- Crumbled nachos
- Sushi Roller
- Ibiza Marble Tray (to plate)
- Arroyo Interlocking Bowls (condiments)
First, lay 6 strips of bacon onto the sushi mat (or as we did, simply use a sheet of saran wrap), slightly overlapping each piece onto the next.
Mix in the BBQ Rub into the ground beef and add a layer of beef onto the bacon. (Here’s a quick tip: flatten the beef in the palms of your hands before laying onto the bacon. If you try to flatten it on the bacon then you risk separating the strips from each other)
Once the beef is laid out, decide how much cheese you want and if you want to add jalapeños into the mix.
After you’ve added your final ingredients then it’s time to roll!
Tuck the ends of the bacon into the roll and roll it tightly while peeling back the saran wrap. (This is one of those things where you have to be quick and careful!)
Place the rolls onto your grill, somewhere with indirect heat, at 180°C / 356°F.
Glaze both rolls at the 25 minute mark.
Cook for another 10 minutes.
Then glaze one last time.
Finally, cut the rolls into sushi portions and present them on your choice of serving tray. We recommend our Ibiza Marble Tray. Traditionally a cheese tray, the smooth marble surface and beautiful steel handles make this piece one of most versatile designs! Feel free to leave your own uses for the Ibiza Tray in the comments below!)
Don’t forget to serve up the condiments! Perhaps in one of our our award winning Arroyo Interlocking Bowls. More than just aesthetically pleasing, this set of three handcrafted bowls are the perfect size for dipping! We used one bowl for the nacho chips, one for the dried onions and one for extra sauce.
