Spicy Tuna Roll Recipe

Make sure that the sushi mat is tucked into a clean one-gallon plastic zip lock style bag prior to creating the salmon roll to ensure that the sushi prepared rice does not stick to the mat. Start off with a half sheet of Nori, and add a small handful of sushi prepared rice. Add a generous helping of the toasted golden and black sesame seeds, press down gently and flip the roll over so that it is Nori side up. Roughly chop the yellow fin tuna and add srirachi hot sauce to taste. I purchased my tuna previously frozen at sea in a vacuum pack, and use leftover pieces from other sushi and sashimi rolls.


Make sure to uniformly place the yellow fin tuna across the entirety of the roll. Add srirachi hot sauce to taste. Place the cucumber slices in the center of the spicy tuna roll to cover the length of the roll. The cucumber slices mellows the spiciness of the tuna and gives the roll a nice crunch and crispiness. The goal is to have even amounts of both in each piece of sushi.

How To Make A Spicy Tuna Roll

I roll the filling with my fingers, press it down and then roll it over to seal it, and then press it down again so that it is firmed up. Now it is time to cut this delicious spicy tuna sushi roll. Make sure to have the clean, wet rag on hand so that the knife can be wiped between cuts. Cut the sushi roll in half, and wipe the knife. Line up the sushi rolls and cut again and then once again ensuring uniformly sized pieces.

This roll is absolutely stunning with the yellow fin tuna, and beautiful sesame seed topping. Consider serving this roll with mayo, masago, or additional toasted sesame seeds. Wasabi, pickled ginger, and spicy mayo are a must have for this delectable delight.
