I started making these for the lunch box, the tinned tuna works really well and the recipe couldn't be any easier. The first time it was a bit slow but after a few I am a pro.

Serves: 6 

  • Sushi Rice
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked sushi rice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 tablespoons mirin
  • Tuna
  • 1 tin tuna in brine
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 1/2 small onion, finely diced
  • Sushi Roll
  • 6 sheets toasted nori (seaweed)
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. To the cooked sushi rice add the sugar and mirin, combine then leave to cool.
  2. In a bowl combine the tuna, sweet chilli sauce and onion.
  3. Place the nori sheet rough side up on a sushi mat. Spread the rice over the nori pressing firmly and leaving a 5cm gap on the side furthest from you.
  4. Place the tuna on the closest edge. Using the mat to get started roll the sushi tightly to form a roll. Moisten the 5cm gap at the end of the nori to help seal the roll. Refrigerate until needed.
  5. Just before serving slice the rolls into 1 1/2cm slices.
  6. Optional: You can add wasabi into the sushi roll before rolling, or serve on the side and let people decide how much they want.
