How to Make a Christmas Sushi Tree

I hope you're all having a fantastic holiday season. I've been quite busy myself. An early holiday plus starting a YouTube Channel while maintaining my blog has been keeping me as busy as a bee. Funny thing though is that I'm actually having a ball juggling all these tasks!

I'm realizing just how true it is when they say, "Time flies when you're having fun!" because that's exactly what I'm experiencing at the moment. No matter how busy and hectic my life is at the moment, I love what I do. I really really do!

So with the holidays right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about Christmas dinner. Turkey perhaps? Or a Christmas Ham? Nah, been there done that. So this year I've decided to make something different and since I love sushi, this easy-peasy Christmas Sushi was a no-brainer.

This Christmas "tower" is so easy to make and so much fun too!


Makes 16-20 rice balls

Sushi Seasoned Rice ( Mix 1/2 cup rice vinegar, 4 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt and cooked rice )
1 block sashimi-grade tuna
20 Pirella Leaves
Daikon strips (optional)


For 16-20 rice balls and set aside.
Cut tuna into very thin strips
Spread plastic wrap on counter top
Place a strip or two of tuna on the plastic wrap
Dab a small amount of wasabi on the center of the tuna.
Put one rice ball in on the tuna.
Wrap the plastic wrap around the ball and squeeze to help adhere the tuna to the rice.
Unwrap and set aside. Repeat with all the rice balls.
Place 5 pirella leaves for the base.
Use a plastic cup to stabilize the tree.
Place rice balls to around the base of the cup.
Put a layer of pirella leaves on top of the first layer of rice balls.
Repeat and alternate until you reach the top. Finish off with one rice ball.
