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 :P ). Hehe too much even for him! :P

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 :P ) 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!
