Tuna Sushi Roll
“This tuna sushi roll will be good as a main on its own, but you can make a more complete meal with miso soup, chawanmushi or chicken karaage!” Jasline
1 rice cooker cup short-grain rice (160g)
185 ml water (3/4 cup), plus extra for rinsing
Rice Vinegar Sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ Japanese cucumber
1 can tuna in water
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 to 1.5 teaspoon wasabi
2 pieces of nori (seaweed) for sushi
Place the rice in a sieve and set the sieve in a bowl.
Add water, then gently rub the rice between your hands.
The water should become milky.
Discard the water.
Repeat until the water becomes relatively clear.
Drain the rice for 30 minutes.
Transfer the rice to a heatproof bowl (preferably metal as ceramic may crack over time) that
can be fitted in a pot.
Add the 185ml of water and set aside to let the rice soak for at least 30 minutes.
Fill the pot with a bit of water, about ½ to ¾-inch tall.
Place the bowl of rice inside.
Cover the pot with a lid and turn on the heat to high.
Once the water in the pot (not in the rice) has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and
simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.
Try not to open the pot cover while the rice is simmering.
After all the water has been absorbed, turn off the heat and let the rice steam in residual
heat for 10 minutes.
Rice Vinegar Sauce
Combine rice vinegar, sugar and salt in and large small pot or small bowl.
Heat up / microwave until the sugar has dissolved.
Rinse and dry the cucumber.
Cut into long strips.
Set them aside.
Tip the canned tuna into a sieve and drain well.
Using a spoon, press down onto the tuna to get rid of excess water.
Transfer the tuna into a bowl and flake the tuna into small pieces.
Add in mayonnaise and wasabi and stir to mix them together.
Taste and see if you want to add in more wasabi.
Back to Sushi Rice Again:
You will have...
It may not be easy to roll the sushi roll tightly at the start, just keep practicing!
You can make mini sushi rolls also, just cut the nori into half and proceed. However, make
sure you spread a thinner layer of rice otherwise you will have problem rolling it up.
