Make It At Home – Spicy Tuna Rolls

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

If you love sushi, you know it can be expensive going out to restaurants to get your raw fish fix. Here’s an easy recipe for making spicy tuna rolls at home. Amaze your friends!

First, buy a tuna. Not the whole fish, but a couple of nice pieces of toro. Make sure the fish is sushi or sashimi grade, anything else will not work for this purpose.  Look for a rich red color. You may have to purchase it frozen, but that should be fine.  Of course, you will want to defrost it before use.  When you are ready to make your spicy tuna rolls, chop your tuna and mix with one tablespoon mayonnaise and one teaspoon of sriracha (Asian hot sauce). You may be like me and want to add more to make it spicier.

Yes, You Use Plain, Everyday Mayo

Miso Happy!

Good Morning, Darlings!

A week or so ago, Miss Tami and I had a girls’ lunch at Miso Izakaya just to catch up. Pretty yummy, I must say.

Even though the rain was coming down in buckets outside, inside we were feeling sunny and warm. The sushi here is so beautiful. Take a look.

Don't You Just Love All That Color?

Going To The Super H and We’re Gonna Make Sushi!

(sung to the tune, “Going To The Chapel”…)

Good Morning, Darlings!

If you know me well in real life, you will know that I am a Super H devotee. I adore the Super H Market.  Google it and see if  you have one near you.  It is an Asian supermarket and their produce, meats and seafood departments will blow you away.  And those prices! Crazy insane cheap.  You could shop here for a week and not spend $50. Or you could spend more – it’s all up to you.
