Feisty Tuna Roll


Time has just been flying by lately. I posted The Red Violin on February 20th, then the Taste and Create 5 post three days later, and vowed that I would have a more regular posting schedule, instead of just once post per week! Crudmonkeys. I realized today that it has been two weeks since I last posted. With a big paper due earlier this week, I seem to have lost track of time. 🙁 I know, excuses, excuses. I can’t guarantee I’ll be on a regular schedule in the next couple of weeks either, because finals are coming up. 🙁

The Feisty Tuna Roll is a little bit spicy but not overwhelmingly so, and definitely tasty. The avocado helps cool it down a little more, so even people who aren’t huge fans of spicy foods will probably like this. 🙂

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 6 stalks green onion
  • 6 oz sashimi grade tuna
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Cut the avocado in half, discarding the pit.
  3. Cut off the hard skin and discard.
  4. Slice the avocado into thin sticks.
  5. Mix the mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce.
  6. Wash the green onion, cut the long green stalks off of the white bulb-like things. Discard the white bulbs.
  7. Slice tuna into 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch by 2-3 inch sticks, against the grain.
  8. Roll the sushi, using avocado, green onion, tuna, and a little of the mayonnaise sauce as your fillings.
