Lion King Roll Recipe

Lion king’s sushi roll is one of the most crowd-pleasing dishes that originally belongs to the Japanese sushi roll. And this Lion king sushi is a baked sushi roll with the flavor of Salmon slices and seasoning-rice, crab meat with a few fresh vegetables. This dish is well known in California inside-out rolls, named Uramaki.
