California Tuna Roll

I love sushi, and can only make it on special occasions since I am restricted from eating too much rice. But this is good and I would eat it every day if I could get away with it!!! Making the sushi rice is most of the work since the rolls put together in a snap!

I love this combination. It's one of my favorites. The recipe intro is exactly right; making the rice is the most difficult part. Rolling, especially maki-style (as I did) is really a snap. I've been making sushi for awhile now, but I used this recipe to teach my oldest son, who LOVES sushi, how to make it. I garnished the plates with pickled daikon slices (yum), wasabi mayonnaise and pickled ginger slivers. Thanx!

Followed this to the letter and it was absolutely delicious. Will make again, I thought the Wasabi might be overpowering but it wasn't. I even had the paste on the plate too. The only change I made was to the sushi rice, I had no sugar so used honey instead.
