Tinned Tuna Cucumber ‘Sushi’ Rolls

I love me some sushi. I could eat it everyday given the chance. It is however, not particularly friendly on the pocket. Although this doesn’t quite come close to a melt-in-you-mouth piece of salmon sashimi, it’s quick, it’s simple, it’s cheap, and it tastes great! It looks a treat too 😉 

Cucumber sushi rolls

What you need

1 cucumber, sliced into ribbons 

1 tin of tuna

3 tblspns paleo mayo

Pinch of cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper to taste

Squeeze of lemon juice 

Few slices of avo (optional) – in fact, any veggies you fancy 

What you need to do

1. Using a potato peeler (or whatever gadget you have to create thin strips), slice the cucumber – do this all the way around, avoiding the soft, seeded core (it will be too thin and won’t hold the filling). 

2. Add a dollop (1 teaspoon or so) of mayo to your tuna. Mix. Season. 

3. Add a teaspoon of tuna onto the end of one cucumber ribbon. If using avo, place some on the tuna. 

4. Holding the edge of the ribbon closest to you, carefully roll over the tuna, and keep rolling tightly until you create the ‘sushi roll’. 

5. Repeat until you’ve used up your ribbons/mixture. Add a small dollop of mayo onto the top, sprinkle with cayenne pepper, and eat!!
