A few weeks ago, Yvo posted a recipe for tuna salad on her blog, The Feisty Foodie. Since I am almost as faithful a reader of her blog as she is of mine (her reviews of New York restaurants always make me want to pack my bags and catch a flight out to New York), I read her post and by the end really wanted some tuna salad. I finally got around to making some (I didn’t have any eggs in the fridge, so I couldn’t make any for a while), and it is definitely kick er… butt! Yummmm… this recipe is definitely a keeper! When you are making the tuna temaki, don’t put too much wasabi in it (omit the wasabi if you don’t like spicy foods). I accidentally put too much wasabi on one, which resulted in Son looking like he was crying (Okay, so his eyes were just watering 😛 ). Hehe too much even for him! 😛

I’ve been taking summer school, which is a bit of a drag but at least this way I’ll be able to graduate on time! Only one more year… I can’t wait to be done!! Yeah yeah, I know, “College is the best time of your life”, but seriously I wanna be done and out of here! I’m sick of having to sit through all these classes, and since I’m not a party girl at all, the *real world* won’t be that much different than the college life for me. Except that I’ll be making money for the work that I do, instead of paying for it. Anyways, the classes I have been taking are super easy which is nice, but I have been doing a bunch of work in my “free time” for a couple of projects that Son and I are working on. (Once we actually get something online, I’ll tell you a bit more about them!) And in a couple of weeks I’m starting tennis lessons! I took lessons at my local park when I was younger (10 or so years ago?), but aside from playing tennis with Son a couple of times, I haven’t played tennis since then. And believe me, I am very bad at it now. So it will be nice to take (beginner 😛 ) lessons again, and maybe I’ll be good enough to actually be able to play against Son!

So how are your summers going? I hear that some of you have pretty bad weather where you are… I hope you are managing alright! Here in SoCal, it’s not too bad. A little hot sometimes, but nothing a fan and a little AC can’t solve. Hope things are going great for you all!

Makes 12 cones.

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 2 tuna cans worth of Kick A** Tuna Salad (2 cans of canned tuna, 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped celery, pickle relish, a generous splash of dried dill, some dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and lemon juice)
  • 6 sticks green onion
  • wasabi
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Make the Kick A** Tuna Salad.
  3. Wash the green onion, cut the long green stalks off of the white bulb-like things. Discard (or pickle) the white bulbs. Break each stalk in half.
  4. When you are rolling the temaki, put a line of wasabi on the rice before you put the ingredients down. Then roll the temaki sushi, using the tuna salad and 2 half-sticks of green onion (and lettuce if you would like – I didn’t have any which is why the pictures don’t show any lettuce) as your fillings.
  5. Enjoy!

    Mmmmm, this sounds so good. Good call on the addition of green onions- sometimes, if not usually (well, when I remember), I like to add white onions to my tuna salad. You’re making me so hungry~! Thanks for the shout out and glad you liked the recipe!!!

  2. Amy says:

    Mmm, looks yummy! Hehe it kinda reminds me of some sushi I had the other day…it was called a tuna sandwich, and it was tuna spread between two sheets of rice covered nori, then cut into triangles to look like the cute little sandwich bites mom used to make as a kid. (I always asked for triangles instead of squares)

    Anyway they used a spicy tuna mixture but I think this is way more appropriate! Looks great, can’t wait to try it! I have three or four things from your site I’ve been meaning to try, I need to get cracking. 😉

  3. Allison says:

    Yvo – Loved it! 😀 Yeah the green onions were really good in it!

    Amy – Oh wow that sounds really cool! I have never had sushi like that… mind if I steal the idea and post it up here sometime? Yum!

  4. Amy says:

    Be my guest! I think it’d be fun to try. 🙂 It might take a little trial and error to get it to stick together just right but if anyone can do it it’d be you!

  5. Allison says:

    I definitely want to try… I’ll let everyone know how it works out! 😀
