Allison Day


The most wonderful thing happened to me the other day. I took my very last final. Ever. Yes, that’s right, I’m finished with school. Graduation is this weekend, and then I never have to be back here, ever! (Unless I really want to. But then it’s by choice, not because I have to for my degree.)

Unfortunately, that means I will be extremely busy during the next week. This weekend there is graduation and Father’s Day and a big fancy black tie dinner where my brother is getting honored, and then Son and I are moving to be closer to his work. These are all sorts of good and happy things, but the downside of this is that I won’t have the time to make sushi. No time. Whatsoever.

So I will be taking a hiatus, but only for a little over a week, I promise. On the morning of June 22nd, I will be back with much more sushi, and perhaps even a restaurant review or two! (Son has promised to take me to get sushi, to celebrate. :) ) I promise. I can’t bear to leave you, my wonderful readers, for too long.

As a parting gift, I leave you with the Pepper Tuna Roll. It is simple, true, but often simple can be the most enjoyable. I hope you all enjoy the sushi! I’ll be back in nine days!

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 6 oz sashimi-grade tuna
  • 3 oz tobiko
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Using a sharp knife, slice the tuna into 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick slices against the grain of the fillet.
  3. Cut each of these slices in half lengthwise, so they are about 1/2 inch wide.
  4. Roll the sushi, using tuna as your filling.
  5. Top each slice with a little mound of tobiko, and then sprinkle ground black pepper on top.
