The 'Make Sushi' blog recently put together a tutorial for making adorable Santa sushi. This time of year, there are a number of recipes that put a festive spin on classic dishes. This recipe takes the idea of Christmas cooking to a whole new level by recreating the face of Santa Claus in a sushi roll.

The DIY recipe involves making a festive sushi roll out of traditional Japanese ingredients. The ingredients are expertly layered on top of one another in order to recreate the face of Santa Claus. Pink and white sushi rice are used for Santa's face and beard, while tuna steak is used for the iconic Santa hat. The ingredients are then wrapped in several nori sheets and sliced to create multiple rolls.

If you're looking for a way to incorporate some Japanese cuisine into your holiday dinner, this Santa sushi tutorial might be the perfect opportunity.
