A while back in the comments for the Tuna Salad Sushi, Tanit suggested using Siracha hot sauce in the Tuna Salad sushi. We finally got around to trying it, and although I’m not so fond of it (I’m not a big fan of spicy things, although I am beginning to be able to tolerate wasabi 😉 ), Son loved it! If you like spicy like Son likes spicy, definitely try it!
Today Son and I went and played tennis. 🙂 Now this might not seem like a big deal, but I haven’t really played since I took lessons when I was 8 or 9, while Son was on the tennis team both at his high school and at his undergraduate college!!! So of course, we were very unbalanced, with really bad me on one side, and really good him on the other. Thankfully he was really nice about it today (unlike other times, when he has accidentally kicked soccer balls into my stomach or hit me with a power serve in tennis!) and was helping me improve my technique so that I could hit the ball straight and make it in the court (rather than hitting it on an angle such that it goes flying high). He even taught me to do a proper (overhead) serve!! I have never been able to do those, and I was able to hit the ball today, although it never actually made it over the net when I did an overhead serve. Yes, I was really bad, and really weak. 😛 My arms hurt.
Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.
- 6 sheets nori
- 3 cups sumeshi
- 12 leaves lettuce
- 3 cans tuna
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp Siracha hot sauce
- Cook sushi rice.
- Open the tuna cans carefully, and drain.
- Mix the tuna with mayonnaise and Siracha sauce.
- Wash the lettuce.
- Roll the sushi. For your fillings, place a couple of lettuce leaves on the sumeshi-covered nori and place about half a can of tuna salad on the lettuce, then roll the sushi as you normally would.
- Serve and enjoy!
