Spicy Tuna Roll
It's a sushi roll made with seasoned tuna sashimi.


  • 6 cups prepared sushi rice
  • 4 sheets nori (dried seaweed)
  • 1 Tbsp white sesame seeds
  • 1/2 lb sushi/sashimi grade tuna (maguro)
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp ichimi-togarashi (ground dried red chili pepper) *adjust the amount to your preference


Chop sashimi/sushi grade tuna and mix with mayonnaise and ichimi-togarashi. Put a nori sheet on top of a bamboo mat. Spread a quarter portion of sushi rice on top of the nori sheet. Sprinkle sesame seed on top of the sushi rice. Place a quarter portion of tuna mixture lengthwise on the rice. Roll up the bamboo mat, pressing forward to shape the sushi into a cylinder. Press the bamboo mat firmly and remove it from the sushi. Make more rolls. Wipe a knife with a wet cloth before slicing sushi. Cut the rolled sushi into bite-sized pieces.

having a hard time finding fresh tuna? Try salmon. Use a knife to flake off about half of the salmon. Chop the rest of the fish into small pieces. The two different textures make for a nice contrast. Add sliced green onions to the mayo and hot sauce. So good
