Mango Tuna Tango

<p>Since I posted here last, two weeks ago, life has been crazy. I went to an amazing dinner for my brother's cancer center where he got honored (I wish I had been able to document the food there!

The soft, yielding texture of the tuna, as opposed to the snappy

Jumpin’ Jack Fish Roll

<p>You might think the name of this roll is a little weird. Why name it the "Jumpin' Jack Fish Roll"? Well, let me explain. The inclusion of jalapeños and togarashi make the roll more than a little spicy, so it's definitely "jumpin'"! And as I mentioned in my <a href="">Yellowtail Nigiri</a> post, yellowtail is actually a type of jack fish, so this being called a "Jack Fish Roll" actually makes
