Sushi

2012-01-20

Ingredients

  • 1 6 oz. can light tuna, drained
  • 6 sheets nori (flat seaweed wrappers)
  • 1 large carrot, cut into long matchsticks
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, hollowed out and cut into long matchsticks
  • 2 Tbs. light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp wasabi paste
  • salt, pepper, ground ginger, to taste

Method

  1. Drain tuna. Put in bowl and fluff with fork. If using other seafood, drain and chop in a food processor.
  2. Mix the seafood with the mayo and wasabi paste. Add spices to taste.
  3. Peel the carrot and cut into long, thin strips about 1/8 to 1/4 diameter. Peel the cucumber, cut in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut like the carrot.
  4. Lay 1 nori sheet on a bamboo rolling mat. It should look like a piece of paper in front of you.
  5. About 2 inches from the bottom, spoon out a thin line of tuna mix, about 1/6 of the mixture. Lay a few carrot and cucumber sticks on top. Begin rolling, according to the instructions on the mat. It may help to slightly wet the top end to seal it. Cut into 2 inch long pieces. Repeat with the remaining tuna and nori. If making ahead, do not cut, and instead wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve over cooked rice, noodles, or salad.

Serves 2.

Note: Nori sheets are available in supermarkets

    The best nori to use? I want to make vegetarian sushi. I have the mat and materials, but need to purchase the ingredients. I will be making the rice in a rice cooker and need to know the best way to prepare it. Thanks for all answers.

    I’m addicted to sushi and will be taking a cruise next month. What kinds do they offer? Is it available for room service 24 hours and is it offered every night at dinner? I’m assuming it’s just a basic sushi menu but hopefully they have some specialty rolls. Thanks!

    We are wanting to make sushi rolls tonight, but do not have “rice cooker”.
    What alternatives are there?
    Can we try using a steamer in a regular sauce pan?
