Spicy No Soy Salmon Sushi Cups

If you love sushi, you will love this Spicy No Soy Salmon Sushi Cups. Unlike traditional sushi that are in rolls, this style of sushi is in cup form and are much easier to make than the rolling method.  These Spicy No Soy Sushi cups are perfect bite sized treats to serve at any dinner party and are safe to eat for guest with food allergies.

For the soy sauce part of this recipe, I used San-J No Soy Tamari, which is not only gluten-free but is also soy free. You always want to check labels on soy sauces because a lot of them contain wheat and those tend to be served in restaurants. This recipe is fun to make. You place the nori sheet in a muffin pan and put the rice and the mixed salmon in the nori sheet. After you bake the sushi cups in the oven, you drizzle the mixture of the No Soy Tamari, vinegar, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes on top.

You can garnish these bites with some avocado and sesame seeds on top. These bites are so cute because the result is a small cup size that is bite sized. You definitely need to try these out!
