Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll

The Necker Island floating sushi boat

INGREDIENTS FOR THE FILLING

200g Sushi Grade Tuna (diced)

2tbs mayonnaise

1x zest and juice of a lime

1x tsp finely grated rood ginger

1x tsp chipotle chili powder

2x tbs chopped corriander

Salt and black pepper

Mix all ingredients together, but make sure this is done just before use as the lime juice will start to cook the tuna once combined.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE RICE

2/3 cup white sushi rice

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

4 sheets nori seaweed sheets

METHOD

  • In a saucepan, bring 1 1/3 cups water to a boil. Add rice, and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Blend the mixture into the rice.
  • Center one sheet nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Wet your hands- this will prevent the rice sticking to your fingers Using your hands, spread a thin layer of rice on the sheet of nori, and press into a thin layer. Arrange 1/4 of the spicy tuna mix down the center of the roll. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife.
