Spicy Tuna Roll
Lisa's favorite roll is the Spicy Tuna Roll... I like them too - spicy is good! Making sushi rolls at home is pretty easy. You need to practice making the sushi rice (that's another post on here) for that is base of all sushi.
Ahi Tuna, diced
1 tsp mayo - you can omit this if you don't want it but it helps everything hold together
1 tsp Sriracha hot sauce - more or less depending on your taste - I like more
Dice your tuna and put it in a bowl. Put in a spot of mayo and the Sriracha hot sauce; mix it all together well. Be careful when you mix because we do not to smash the tuna... Once you have everything mixed up give a small piece a taste to make sure everything is good for you.
Prepare your nori and rice like you would for any standard roll. Lay down a nice row of your prepared tuna. Roll it up and slice - some say you have to have an odd number of slices and some say even is ok. Whatever you decide to do just make sure all your pieces are even. Sushi is pretty food so make sure it looks good...
Happy Cooking & Eating!
