Spicy Tuna Roll


  1. Prepare spicy tuna mixture. Finely chop tuna and stir together with 2 tablespoons sriracha, soy, and sesame oil.
  2. To create your roll, place a ¾ sheet of Sushi Nori rough side up on your plastic-wrapped sushi mat (with the long sticks running horizontally to your body) and, using wet hands, cover Sushi Nori with a thin layer of cooled sushi rice. *gimme tip* if you don’t have a sushi mat, you can use parchment paper or a tea towel instead!
  3. Place ¼ of your tuna mixture spanning the width of your Sushi Nori about an inch away from the Sushi Nori/rice border closest to you.
  4. Using your fingers to hold the tuna, start to roll the front part of the sushi roll like a burrito and tuck it tightly around the filling. Lift the sushi mat up off the tucked portion and continue to roll, moving the mat after each rotation.
  5. Once tightly rolled, remove the mat completely and use a wet serrated knife to saw the sushi roll into 8 pieces. Rewet knife as needed so rice doesn’t stick.
  6. Repeat to make 4 rolls then enjoy with your favorites like soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger!
