Spicy Watermelon Tuna Rolls
Prep time
Total time
This basic vegan spicy "tuna" roll, is a fantastic fish-free, egg-free twist on the original. Using my watermelon tuna recipe, you end up with a cool and slightly sweet, fiery flavour. In this roll we combine an egg-free spicy mayo, green onion and watermelon sushi, wrapped in delicious nori sheets and rice.

Spicy Sushi Rolls:
  1. Rinse sushi rice thoroughly until the water runs clear.
  2. Cook the sushi rice in a rice cooker with water.
  3. Remove rice when finished and let cool.
  4. Combine mayo and Sriracha sauce and mix. Set Aside.
  5. Combine water and 1 Tbsp rice vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, mix to combine the watermelon tuna, 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce, sesame oil, and one third of the green onion. Set aside.
  7. Lay a sheet of nori, shiny side down, on a plastic wrap-lined bamboo mat. You want the rougher side to stick to the rice.
  8. Wet your fingers in the vinegar water you mixed, and spread one quarter to one third of the rice evenly onto nori sheet.
  9. Sprinkle with some sesame seeds.
  10. Turn the sheet of nori over so that the rice is facing down.
  11. Place one quarter to one third of the watermelon tuna mixture at the edge of the nori sheet closest to you.
  12. Grab the bottom edge of the bamboo mat (closest to you) keep the fillings in place with your fingers and roll tight. (This takes some practice).
  13. Lift the edge of the bamboo mat and with gentle pressure, roll it forward.
  14. Using a very sharp knife, and hand dipped in the vinegar mixture, cut the roll in half and then cut each half into 3 pieces.
  15. Wipe the knife between cuts, and wet fingers, to prevent sticking.
  16. Continue with remaining ingredients, covering the completed rolls with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying.
  17. When you’re finished, and ready to serve, place rolls on a plate, or serving tray and add a dollop of spicy mayo, or sriracha (or both) on top of each one and garnish with remaining green onion.
