This recipe was adapted from a poster on another board, Sandi in Hawaii, and we love it. When you are unable to have real sushi, this is a tasty substitution. It is great for a party as everyone can just help themselves. Check out my Lazy Woman California Roll. Don't forget the wasabi!
- 2 cups short-grain rice or 2 cups sushi rice
- 2 1⁄4 cups water
- 4 tablespoons sushi vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces sashimi-grade tuna, raw, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
- 2 ripe avocados, peeled and sliced thin
- 1 bunch green onion, sliced thin
- tobiko (flying fish roe)
- sriracha sauce (optional)
- Place raw rice in a colander and rinse until the water runs clear. Put rice in pot or rice cooker with the water. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and cover. Cook for about 15 minutes or until rice is done. Put rice in a large non-metallic bowl and add the remaining ingredients and stir until the rice becomes sticky and shiny.
- Layer the rice in a pie plate or other serving dish. On top of the rice, place the thinly sliced avocado until rice is covered.
- Mix the tuna with the mayonnaise and sriracha chinese hot sauce.
- Put the tuna mixture on top of the avocado and spread evenly.
- Sprinkle with sliced green onions and chopped cucumber.
- Sprinkle tobiko (if using) over the top. For a spicier version squirt some Sriracha Chinese Hot Sauce in a decorate pattern on top of the tuna.
- Put out small dipping bowls, wasabi and soy sauce. Place quartered squares of nori for people to roll their own little rolls.
- Have people mix a little wasabi with the soy sauce for dipping the rolls inches.
