Spicy Tuna Roll

The other day I made Spicy tuna roll (I love to cook) =) yummm

If your curious how to make the tuna filling here is a recipe on how to make it.

4 cups sushi rice
4 sheets nori (dried seaweed)
1 Tbsp white sesame seeds
1/2 pound fresh maguro (raw tuna)
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp togarashi (chile powder) (I used Sirachi Sauce)

Chop tuna and mix with mayonnaise and togarashi. Put a nori sheet on top of a bamboo mat (makisu). Spread sushi rice on top of the nori sheet. Sprinkle sesame seed on top of the sushi rice. Place the tuna mixture lengthwise on the rice. Roll up the bamboo mat, pressing forward to shape the sushi into a cylinder. Press the bamboo mat firmly and remove it from the sushi. Cut the rolled sushi into bite-sized pieces.

And this video shows you how to roll them inside out =)

This was actually good, probably would have been better if we had gone out and gotten fresh raw tuna instead of canned, but it was good nonetheless.
