Homemade Spicy Tuna Roll. Enjoy sushi at home!

Post divider

With help from my great pals over at Fisherman’s Market, I came across some amazing sushi grade tuna this week. While I don’t make sushi often, it’s always an entertaining, interactive event. Something to keep us busy while isolating!!

My wife Jess thought it would be fun to make sushi with friends this weekend over ZOOM! I am a mere puppet to her producer ways. She thinks sushi is the call? We do it!

Here is the breakdown. I will include ingredients, but check out my Instagram highlights for a how-to on making the sushi rolls themselves.

Ready in: 1h
Prep: 1h
Servings: 4-5

Ingredients

  • Sushi Rice:
  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Tuna Mixture:
  • 1 sushi grade tuna (depends on how much you want)
  • 1/2 cup green onions, diced
  • 3 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • Spicy Mayo:
  • 1/2 cup Japanese kewpie mayo
  • 2 tbsp sriracha

Instructions

  1. Get started on the rice. Rinse really well before boiling it: place rice in large pot and pour in a bunch of water. Using your hand, move the rice around. Strain through a fine strainer. Repeat 3 to 4 times. Now add in 3 cups of water, the rice wine vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil and cover, turn heat to low for 18-20 mins. Remove pot from heat and spread rice on baking sheet to cool. It's now ready to roll with.
  2. Next up, dice the tuna into small cubes. Take your time here. You want the cubes to be fairly small. In a bowl, add all ingredients listed under "Tuna Mixture". Mix together and keep in fridge until ready to roll sushi. This dish right now is amazing tuna tartare and is delicious with Miss Vickie's plain chips...you're welcome!
  3. Spicy mayo. Couldn't be easier. Mix kewpie and sriracha. BOOM! Now roll up some sushi. Watch my Instagram post to see how!!!
