What is a spider roll?

A spider roll is a type of sushi roll, typically found in Japanese cuisine, that features soft-shell crab as its main ingredient. Here’s a breakdown of the components:

  • Soft-Shell Crab: The crab is usually tempura-fried, giving it a crispy texture.
  • Rice: Sushi rice is used, which is seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt.
  • Nori: The roll is wrapped in a sheet of seaweed (nori).
  • Vegetables: Common vegetables in a spider roll include cucumber and avocado, adding a refreshing crunch and creamy texture.
  • Other Ingredients: Sometimes, ingredients like lettuce, radish sprouts, or tobiko (fish roe) are added for extra flavor and texture.

The roll is typically served with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger. The name “spider roll” comes from the crab legs sticking out of the ends of the roll, resembling spider legs.
