Ingredients
  • 1 cup Japanese short-grain/sushi rice or good quality white rice
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ⅓ pound sushi grade tuna*
  • sea salt
  • ½ cup prepared seaweed salad*
  • prepared Japanese cucumbers
  • 2 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoon white sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons tobiko (flying fish roe)
Instructions
  1. Rinse the rice until the water runs clear and drain. Cook in a rice cooker according to the manufactures directions. If you don't have a rice cooker - place the rice into a heavy-bottomed pot. Add 1 cup of cold water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over moderate heat for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and cover for 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and allow to sit, covered for 10 minutes. Then drizzle evenly with rice vinegar and gently toss.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the Sriracha, mayo, and garlic. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Cut the tuna into ½ inch pieces and season to taste with sea salt.
  4. Divide the rice evenly among two large bowls. Drizzle with the Sriracha-garlic mayo (use your desired amount), top with the tuna, seaweed salad, cucumbers, scallions, avocado, sesame seeds, and fish roe.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Notes
* Selecting Seafood - 1.) Go to a reputable vender – one that goes through a lot of fish. 2.) Observe or ask if their ‘sushi-grade’ fish is prepared and stored separately from their other fish – this will prevent cross-contamination. 3.) Use your senses – smell, touch, and sight. The fish should only smell like the ocean, it should be firm to the touch, and the color should be bright and vibrant.

* Most general grocery stores these days have a sushi counter with prepared containers. They should have seaweed salad there.
