Making Spicy Tuna Rolls with Michael Schulson


Sushi has always been a passion of mine, one that launched my career as a chef. I quickly fell in love with the versatility of this dish, as rolls can be as simple or extravagant as you’d like. One of my favorite dishes to make at home is the Spicy Tuna Roll from my Philadelphia restaurant, Double Knot. Ingredients include nori sheet with sushi rice, tuna, wasabi and optional avocado. To make the perfect roll, here are a few things to keep in mind......

  •  When working with rice, wet your hands to avoid stickiness.

  •  Wrap your tuna in paper towels to remove any unwanted fishy taste.

  •   Stick to high quality nori, as inexpensive nori is bound to have a chewy quality.

  •  Always add a little extra something for more texture.

 I hope you enjoy creating, serving and eating this dish as much as I do.
