I could not imagine life without eating sushi. I love it so much. There is just something delicious about a tempura-fried Sushi roll or a Spicy Crab roll.
But what happens when you get pregnant and then all of a sudden you cannot eat sushi anymore? Never fear! Here are some sushi ideas for recipes (that go great with my eel sauce) that you can eat while pregnant.
Sushi Recipes You Can Eat While Pregnant
Here's the thing to remember. While the raw sushi rolls are off-limits, you can literally turn cooked meat into sushi rolls and still enjoy your favorite meat/rice combo. Just be sure if you are using seafood that you choose the lower mercury fish.

#1 California Roll
California roll is always a favorite of mine. The recipe ingredients inside this roll are Rice, cucumber, cooked crab meat, and avocado. I first had this roll when I visited some amazing San Diego Sushi Restaurants.
All of those are safe ingredients for any pregnant woman to indulge in. Then you can top it with my eel sauce and toasted sesame seeds as well as some sliced green onions for a delicious bite of sushi.
#2 Tempura (Fried Rolls)
The tempura batter rolls are always so good. We have made them with crab and with chicken. You can use avocado, cream cheese, asparagus and more. The possibilities are endless. You can check out my recipe here.

The Spicy Crab sushi roll is a fantastic recipe for people who are just starting to learn how to roll sushi at home. It’s simple to work with, simple to make, and simply satisfying.
This is very easy to make. You can use my sushi rice recipe here and also buy crab in the deli that is already cooked. From that point, it's just about rolling it all together and then enjoying it.
