Look, we *love* sushi. We enjoy DIY-ing sushi rolls, getting creative with canned tuna recipes, and chowing down on sushi cakes. Heck, we even love the concept of making frushi recipes (that is, fruit rolled up in rice so it looks JUST like real sushi). But you know what could possibly make sushi even better? Taco shells! That鈥檚 right 鈥 sushi tacos are definitely a thing, and Instagram has proof. The next time you and your crew can鈥檛 choose between Mexican and Japanese鈥 Well, maybe you won鈥檛 have to.

1. Hard Shell Sushi: Sushi tacos often come with a soft seaweed 鈥渢aco shell,鈥 but these bad boys throw some crunch into the mix. They鈥檙e encased in a hard shell that we imagine must be made from rice or flour. The tacos themselves are garnished with fish, rice, radishes, and fresh herbs.

2. Ceviche Tacos: These tacos, made with tuna, salmon, and white fish, respectively, emulate the flavors of traditional Peruvian ceviche. They鈥檙e pulled together in a puffed rice taco shell and topped with onion, lime, and other fix-ins.

3. Soft Shell: Now, this creation may taste a little more like the sushi you鈥檙e used to. It鈥檚 held together by a 鈥渟hell鈥 made of seaweed, and it鈥檚 bursting with white rice, seaweed salad, fish, and sesame seeds.

5. All The Sushi: Sushi tacos are a fantastic meal all on their own, but they can also be an ideal accompaniment for, you know, *actual* sushi. Check out the myriad options on display here, from crispy onion-topped rolls to mango-infused crab sushi.

6. Sushi, Unrolled: Take a good look at these tacos, because this is a glimpse into all the flavorful goodness that鈥檚 hiding in your sushi tacos. We spot whitefish, soy sauce, white rice, seaweed radishes, green onions, and carrots.

7. Meet In The Middle: This taco truly is a fusion food. Though it鈥檚 made with raw fish and rice, it鈥檚 stuffed inside a a traditional taco shell and topped with jalape帽os. Talk about the best of both worlds.

8. Vegan Sushi Tacos: Just as there are plenty of options for vegans at traditional sushi restaurants, it鈥檚 easy to find plant-based sushi tacos as well. Case in point: This bite-sized snack made with rice, seaweed, avocado, peppers, and cucumbers.

11. Norigami: Norigami, an LA-based pop-up, is credited with being the original creator of the sushi nori taco. (Nori is Japanese for seaweed, FYI.) These are just two of their most popular sushi taco creations.
