  • 1 can (5oz) Tuna in water
  • 1 large Cucumber
  • ½ an Avocado
  • 1 Carrot cut in julienne
  • 1 Celery stalk in julienne
  • 3 T sliced Red Onion
  • 1 T Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Wasabi paste
  • pinch of Salt

Peel off and remove the ends from the cucumber, then cut the cucumber in half.
Grab one half of the cucumber and grab a knife, place the knife vertically to the cucumber and start slicing around the cucumber, like if you were peeling it off, you want to get a thin and long sheet/layer of cucumber, (see the video to get an idea of how to do so) You want the cucumber sheet to be about 8-10 inches long. Repeat this step with the second half of the cucumber. You will get about 2 sheets of cucumber from each half. Set aside the cucumber sheets for a minute.

To make the filling: Combine the tuna with the mayo, wasabi paste and a pinch of salt, stir well, taste the flavor add more salt or pepper if needed.

Place about 1-2 tablespoons of the filling right in the middle of each cucumber sheet, then top the tuna mixture with a couple of pieces of celery, carrots, onion and avocado, sprinkle with a bit of salt, then roll it out to make a roll. keep the roll in place with tooth picks, then cut each roll into slices.

To serve: In a small bowl combine whatever vegetables you have left after making the rolls, season the vegetables with a teaspoon of each: soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and a pinch of Asian seasoning, toss well, then serve this salad with the tuna rolls.

Dress the rolls with a bit of Soy sauce and bit of Wasabi Paste!
