Things to Keep in Mind Before Making Some Spider Roll Sushi
Before you go, here are some things you might want to consider before making some spider rolls.
Some of these recipes do not have instructions on how you should make your tempura batter. On the other hand, feel free to use your preferred recipe or way to make tempura.
Remember, the soft-shell crab is the star of this show. As you might already know, how you make the batter will likely affect the overall taste of the spider roll.
Cutting the Crab
One thing you might not have noticed in the recipes we have shown you is that they cut up the crab differently. Usually, they cut the crab vertically in the middle.
However, if you have a hard time rolling the sushi that way, feel free to cut the crab horizontally. On the other hand, you can chop it further if you still struggle to fit it in the roll.
You might only want to keep in mind to keep the crab legs in there as it is what gives the spider roll its “spider legs”.
