A captivating video showcasing extraordinary sushi has taken the online food community by storm. However, appearances can be deceiving, as this remarkable dish is entirely composed of mushrooms.
The footage, shared by Aqua Cultured Foods (@aquaculturedfoods), highlights the company’s innovative approach to sushi creation using unconventional ingredients. Their motivation stemmed from a global decline in fish populations.
The viral video, amassing over 7,400 views and counting, exhibits a skilled individual crafting sushi inspired by “sea bass” using fermented mushrooms.
“With sashimi slices so delicate and tender, you’ll struggle to believe it’s not fish—because, hush, it’s truly NOT fish!” declares the accompanying caption.
The video commences with the chef meticulously aligning sticky rice in a pristine row. Subsequently, they adorn it with a mushroom substitute, ingeniously resembling white fish. Finally, a strip of seaweed is delicately added to complete the creation.
Stunned viewers wasted no time expressing their astonishment in the comments section.
One individual exclaimed, “This appears incredibly appetizing!”
Another commenter added, “I can hardly distinguish it from the real thing!”
Brittany enthusiastically chimed in, “I’m absolutely captivated by this!”

In a separate video, which garnered thousands of views, the talented chef replicates spicy tuna rolls.
“Restaurants will soon be able to offer impressively realistic spicy tuna dishes to cater to individuals with seafood allergies or those who prefer not to consume actual fish,” explained the caption accompanying the post.
The video showcases the meticulous creation of a spicy tuna roll, featuring seaweed wrapping layered with rice, avocado, and cucumber. The “fake tuna” is artfully placed on top before the sushi is tightly rolled and sliced into bite-sized pieces, much to the delight of viewers seeking an alternative to traditional fish-based fare.
