Number of Servings: 2


    1 6 oz. can light tuna, drained
    OR equal amount of cooked shrimp, smoked salmon, cooked fish or anchovies, chopped into pea-size bits
    6 sheets nori (flat seaweed wrappers)
    1 large carrot, cut into long matchsticks
    1 cucumber, peeled, hollowed out and cut into long matchsticks
    2 Tbs. light mayonnaise
    1 tsp wasabi paste
    salt, pepper, ground ginger, to taste


Drain tuna. Put in bowl and fluff with fork. If using other seafood, drain and chop in a food processor.
Mix the seafood with the mayo and wasabi paste. Add spices to taste.
Peel the carrot and cut into long, thin strips about 1/8 to 1/4 diameter. Peel the cucumber, cut in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut like the carrot.
Lay 1 nori sheet on a bamboo rolling mat. It should look like a piece of paper in front of you.
About 2 inches from the bottom, spoon out a thin line of tuna mix, about 1/6 of the mixture. Lay a few carrot and cucumber sticks on top. Begin rolling, according to the instructions on the mat. It may help to slightly wet the top end to seal it. Cut into 2 inch long pieces. Repeat with the remaining tuna and nori. If making ahead, do not cut, and instead wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve over cooked rice, noodles, or salad. Serves 2.

    Sounds good, but I wouldn't substitute the rice for tuna; imho part of the joy of sushi is that it's a meal on it's own, if you take the rice out, it stops being so! Not a bad idea though. - 7/14/11

    Interesting--using the tuna mix instead of rice. Sounds more like a tuna sandwich with nori for bread. Still, may have to try it. - 4/12/11
