I have a recipe I received several years ago from a sushi class I took for spicy tuna rolls. There is two ingredients I can't find when I search the web. They are: KOBASHI and TOBIASHI. Any idea what these are?

  • google doesn't return anything sushi related, do you have more info or context on what those ingredients were ?

    could it be a typo for togarashi? geniuskitchen.com/about/togarashi-50 (if there's no other heat source, as you mention 'spicy', this is likely it; it might be worth posting the recipe so we can figure out what might be missing)

I've a feeling one of those items should be Tobiko, flying fish roe. Normally a pale or brightly coloured orange little eggs like this: tobiko on sushi roll
