Publix Sushi Roll held by Seafood Associate

Sushi is often a fan favorite. If you have been on the fence about this popular cuisine, why not at least give it a try? One common misconception about sushi is that it always contains raw seafood. However, Publix offers many varieties that are fully cooked and do not contain raw seafood. Take a look at some of our handcrafted sushi options to get an idea of all we have to offer.

Let’s get things “rolling” with a behind-the-scenes look at our sushi.

Some of our best-selling rolls include:

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

How does a new sushi roll recipe make its way into our stores? “We have a product development team that continuously analyzes new item recipes and produces them in test kitchens,” supplier partner Clarence Chan said. “For a new sushi roll to be created and brought to market, it has to go through a variety of stages. 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.”

Pro Tip: Did you know all Publix locations that offer sushi participate in “$5 Sushi Wednesday?” That means that each Wednesday you can choose from a select variety of sushi for only $5.
