Spicy Tuna Sushi Roll
– 2 cups Freshly Prepared Sushi Rice
– Nori Seaweed, roasted sheets
– 1 tablespoon Sesame Seeds
– 1/2 pound Fresh Raw Tuna
– 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
– 1/2 teaspoon Togarashi (Japanese Hot Pepper)
Chop tuna and mix with mayonnaise and togarashi. Cut nori sheet in half and place it on bamboo mat, shiny side down. Dampen your fingers in water. Spread a thin layer of sushi rice over the seaweed, do not cover completely. Leave a 1-inch margin at the ends uncovered to seal the roll. Spread tuna mixture lengthwise. Position them about 1 inch away from the bottom edge of the seaweed. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. To roll slowly fold the end of the mat closest to you over the filling and tuck it in.
Use medium pressure to create compact tube. Remove the mat from around the roll, press in the loose ends and place it on a cutting board, seam side down.
Using a wet, sharp knife, slice the roll in half then in 6 equal pieces. Serve with wasabi, soy sauce and pickled ginger.
