“Grillus Kitchen” that delivers recipes using Grilus cricket ingredients
This time, we will introduce "Avocado Chirashi Sushi", which is exciting to see and eat with spring-like colors!

Easter is a festival to commemorate and remember that Jesus Christ was resurrected three days after being crucified. Due to this origin, Easter is translated as "Resurrection Festival" in Japanese.
Recently, it has become established as a seasonal event that marks the arrival of spring, and many people seem to enjoy spending time with their families and having parties like Christmas.

This time, in connection with Easter, we will introduce a recipe for chirashi sushi that is finished in the colors of spring.
As a sauce for chirashi sushi, we added the umami-rich "grillus extract" of Futahoshi crickets to mayonnaise to make a mayonnaise sauce.
How about celebrating the arrival of spring with a dish full of the umami of crickets?


  • Gryllus extract
    1 tablespoon
  • Avocado (seeds are made from chicken, cut into 8mm width)
    1 piece
  • boiled shrimp
    8 tails
  • Boiled egg (cut into wedges)
  • Cucumber (diced)
  • mayonnaise
    3 tablespoons
  • white sesame seeds
    moderate amount

How to make

  • Put mayonnaise and grilus extract in a bowl, mix and put in a squeeze bag (storage bag).
  • Place the vinegared rice on a plate, sprinkle the cucumbers, add the avocado, boiled shrimp, and boiled egg, squeeze out ①, and sprinkle with white sesame seeds.

So crickets!

The appeal of Grilus extract extracted from the cricket is its umami.
The strong umami extract of oysters is combined with the all-purpose seasoning mayonnaise to bring out the flavors of each other.
And grillus extract contains more than 20% protein, so you can easily supplement protein just by adding it.

In addition to the ingredients used this time, you can also use salmon or thinly sliced ​​omelet for a delicious and vivid finish.
Grilus extract contains salt, so be careful not to take too much salt while checking the balance with mayonnaise.

Why Cricket?

The protein crisis that will occur in the future and the food loss problem that is currently occurring mainly in developed countries. In order to solve both of these problems, Grilas grows edible crickets using food waste as food.
