8 large leaves of Romaine Lettuce
1 can tuna, drained (3 oz)
3 Tbs onion, minced finely
3 Tbs celery, minced
4 Tbs grated carrot
2 Omega 3 Eggs, hard boiled and chopped
1 tsp pickled jalepeno
2 Tbs capers, chopped
1 Tbs horseradish
2 Tbs Mayo made with canola or olive oil
1-2 tsp wasabi powder, mixed into paste
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tbs sweet pickle relish
1 tsp garlic, finely minced or paste
1 Tbs mustard (preferably spicy mustard)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
Mix the wasabi powder with water and let sit for a few minutes while you mix the rest.
Fully drain the tuna and add onion, celery, carrot, capers, jalepenos and chopped eggs. Stir to combine.
In a bowl, mix the mayo, lemon juice, wasabi paste, horseradish, mustard, pickle relish, and seasoning till well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings to suit you.
Take 1/4 cup of tuna/egg mixture and put into the lower part of the spine of 1 leaf of Romaine lettuce. You can sprinkle with soy sauce if desired. Tuck the top of the leaf over the tuna and then roll the leaf around the tuna, kind of like an egg roll.
Serve with a soy-wasabi dipping sauce and sesame seeds, or plain.
It's fun to let everyone roll their own, however, if you want to serve these, pierce each roll with a toothpick to hold it's shape and serve on a platter.
Number of Servings: 4
