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.
- Place quartered squares of nori for people to roll their own little rolls.
Delicious! I've always been curious how to make the spicy ahi sauce correctly and this one is delicious. I would give it 10 stars if I could ;)
