Original composition:

  • Scallop – 2 pcs.
  • Tobiko – 2 h. l.
  • Thick mayonnaise – 1 tbsp. l. with a slide

How to make the sauce:

  1. The scallops need to thaw and it’s best to let this happen at room temperature.
  2. Then they should be finely chopped.
  3. Add flying fish caviar to them and season with mayonnaise.
  4. Lava sauce is ready!

As you can see in the classic recipe, scallops are raw. This is acceptable, because they are sufficiently “marinated” sea ​​water. The Japanese generally eat a lot of things raw.

If you are worried, you can heat the chopped scallops in olive oil, but no more than a minute. Otherwise they will become rubber. Of course, you can replace scallops with shrimp, tobiko with capelin caviar, but this is not the same at all. Although much more accessible and simpler.

Lava sauce is not spicy, but we advise all lovers of rolls and sushi to look at the recipe for spicy sauce, and also take a look at how to properly dilute soy sauce!
