Spicy Tuna Rolls
Yield: 4 servings
Prep: 25 minutes | Cook: 35 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
- 3 cups Japanese rice
- 3 ¼ cups water
- ⅓ cup rice vinegar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 8 oz chopped sashimi grade tuna
- 5 tsps Tabiko
- 3 oz Japanese mayonnaise
- 1 oz Sriracha (spicy chili sauce)
- 6 oz water
- 1 oz rice vinegar
- Nori sheets
- Sushi rice
- Rinse rice until water is slightly cloudy (approx. 3 times). Soak rice in water 20 minutes before cooking. Steam rice until cooked (using rice steamer or on stove top).
- Remove rice from cooker, place into large bowl (wooden bowl if you have one). Sprinkle vinegar (mixed with salt) over rice. Using a spatula, quickly fold vinegar into rice, being careful to not smash rice.
- Note: To cool and quickly remove moisture from rice, use a fan as you mix the sushi rice. This also gives the rice a nice shiny appearance. It’s best to use sushi rice right away.
- Mix the Japanese mayonnaise and Sriracha in a bowl until completely blended.
- In a separate bowl add mayonnaise/Sriracha mixture to remaining ingredients and blend together.
- Mix water and rice vinegar tezu together in small bowl. Use this for to rinse your hands so that rice does not stick to your hands while making the handrolls.
- Place half a piece of Nori in one hand (probably left hand if you are right handed). Spread an even layer of rice over half the sheet. Place filling in the middle of the rice layer. Evenly roll into a cone.
