Yuzu Ponzu Tuna Rolls

 Over the past year I’ve loved making sushi from home. It is always such a fun experience and they always come out tasting just as good as the ones you get from a sushi restaurant. Bring the sushi restaurant to your home and give these Yuzu Ponzu Tuna Rolls a try.

To make these sushi rolls you first start by cooking the rice and once the rice is cooked you spread the rice on a baking sheet and then add the Marukan Organic Seasoned Rice Vinegar and top it with another baking sheet. Then in a mixing bowl you add the Marukan Yuzu Ponzu Sauce and the mayonnaise and stir until smooth. Once smooth, add the diced tuna, ponzu mayo, and green onions in a mixing bowl.

Then the fun starts with making the sushi rolls! On a bamboo mat you take a sheet of nori wrap and with damp hands you add a thin layer of rice, then put the tuna in a line, followed by the cucumber. Then you firmly roll the mat over all the ingredients and cut into 8 rolls. Then sprinkle the sesame seeds over each roll. I like to serve mine with some Marukan Yuzu Ponzu and pickled ginger.
