Sushi is often a fan favorite. If you’re on the fence about this popular Asian food, why not at least give it a try? One common misconception about sushi is that it always contains raw seafood. Publix actually offers many varieties of sushi that are fully-cooked, and do not contain raw seafood. Here is a behind the scenes look of our sushi.

Best-selling rolls include:

  • California Roll
  • Crunchy Roll
  • Crunchy Shrimp Tempura Roll
  • Spicy Tuna Roll
  • Cream Cheese Roll

To learn more about each of the most popular sushi rolls, check out our “International Sushi Day” blog.

How does a new sushi roll recipe come to be in our stores? Clarence Chan, our supplier partner shared, “We have a product development team that continuously analyzes new item recipes and produces them in test kitchens. For a new sushi roll to be created and brought to market, it has to go through a variety of stages.” He went on to say, “From sample tasting to quality check and recipe adjustment, there are many steps our teams must go through when adding a new roll to our selection. One of the team’s goals for 2018 is to introduce new sushi items on a quarterly basis.”
