Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll

Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll

This dish was the second part for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "One Bite". What better one bite food than sushi? I have only made sushi one time before and let's just say that it... did not end well. While this time it came out delicious, the amount of effort required makes me want to just go to a restaurant next time I want it.



  1. 2 Cups Rice Sushi
  2. 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  3. 1 6 oz Tuna Cans
  4. 1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
  5. 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  6. 1 teaspon Wasabi Paste
  7. 4 Nori Sheets
  8. 1/2 Cucumber
  9. 1 Carrot
  10. 1 Avocado

    Start by preparing the rice. Add the Sushi Rice, 2 1/2 Cups Water, and Vinegar to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and all liquid has been absorbed (about 20 minutes).

    While the rice is cooling, prepare the Tuna; lightly mix together the Tuna, Mayonnaise, Chili Powder, and Wasabi Paste in a bowl, breaking apart the Tuna but not mashing it.
