As simple as it might sound, this roll is actually my favorite roll out of all the rolls I have made thus far!
(It beat out the Crunchy Shrimp Roll, which is my most requested roll by those for whom I make sushi!)
The tart tuna salad goes absolutely wonderfully with the juicy crunch of the lettuce and the sweet/salty taste of the sumeshi. Believe me, it is heavenly! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 🙂 I must have eaten 3 or 4 rolls of this… 😀
UPDATE: Check out the Spicy Tuna Salad Roll! We used Tanit’s suggestion, and it’s yummy!
Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.
- 6 sheets nori
- 3 cups sumeshi
- 12 leaves lettuce
- 3 cans tuna
- mayonnaise and mustard
- anything else you like putting in your tuna salad
- Cook sushi rice.
- Open the tuna cans carefully, and drain.
- Mix the tuna with mayonnaise, mustard, and anything else you like putting in your tuna salad, to taste.
- 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- then roll the sushi as you normally would.
- Serve and enjoy!
