Easy No-Rice Sushi Roll

My roommate, Ashlee, came up with this amazingly simply recipe for quick no-rice (also no cook) sushi rolls.  Perfect for you Paleo lovers out there.

I made mine into pseudo sushi rolls; however next time I think I'll make hand rolls.  It was not an easy task to keep the roll tight enough to hold the ingredients.

My next version will be a combination of sautéed mushrooms, arugula, tuna, and lemon dipped in a pesto sauce for a Mediterranean twist.  I'll let you know how it goes!

Easy No-Rice Sushi Roll
Serves 1 - Makes two Sushi Rolls

1 can tuna
Lemon Juice from 1 Lemon
2 tsp grated Fresh Ginger
2 Sheets Raw Unroasted Seaweed Sheets
4-6 Baby Carrots sliced into strips
1/2 Avocado sliced into strips
2 Radishes sliced into strips
Tamari Soy Sauce (Gluten Free)
Sriracha Chili Sauce

Combine canned tuna, fresh lemon juice, grated fresh ginger, salt, and pepper in a bowl.  Place seaweed sheet onto a working surface.  Take a paper towel and moisten with water.  Lightly dab seaweed sheet with moisten towel until seaweed becomes pliable, however not soaking wet; the seaweed will fall apart if too wet or break apart if too dry).  Place 1/2 of the tuna in the center of the sheet. Place 1/2 of the vegetables on either side of the tuna.  Pull one end of the sheet over the mixture and tuck in tightly.  Take other end and wrap over the folding end.  The water should cause the seaweed to stick.  If you prefer an easier route - just make hand rolls!   Slice into desired sizes.
