Sushi bowls with tuna salad, rice, edamame, corn, avocado and cucumber.

Sushi is probably the only takeout food I’ve missed during the Covid-19 lockdown. We usually either eat out or have takeaways once a week and, quite surprisingly, I haven’t missed that at all. I’ve been able to cook meals I wouldn’t normally make, and Royce has even been doing some cooking (usually a VERY rare occurence!).

I was really craving sushi one lunchtime, and had everything but the seaweed on hand – so that’s how these tuna salad sushi bowls came to be! Tuna is my favourite type of sushi, but you can use cooked prawns, shrimp, salmon, shredded chicken or even crab meat if you like.

Ingredients

RICE

  • 1 1/3 cups sushi rice (350g)
  • 2 cups cold water (500ml)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

TUNA SALAD

  • 425 g can tuna in spring water (15oz)
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise or aioli
  • 2 Tbsp lite sour cream
  • 1/2 Tbsp wholegrain mustard

TO SERVE

  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels (160g)
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame beans (155g)
  • 1/2 telegraph cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 Tbsp sushi ginger
  • 3-4 tsp soy sauce

Instructions

  1. COOK RICE

    Rinse rice well under cold water. Place in a medium-large non-stick pot and stir in water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium, cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

  2. MAKE TUNA SALAD

    Meanwhile, drain tuna well. Finely dice shallot. Combine all tuna salad ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. PREPARE SERVING INGREDIENTS

    Heat a small frying pan on medium heat. Add sesame seeds and cook, stirring, until golden / toasted.

  4. Place corn kernels and edamame in a heatproof bowl and pour boiling water over to cover. Leave for 5 minutes.

  5. Thinly slice cucumber and dice avocado. Drain corn and edamame.

  6. SERVE

    Stir vinegar, sugar, salt, corn and edamame into rice. Divide between individual serving bowls and top with tuna salad, cucumber, avocado and sushi ginger. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and drizzle with soy sauce.

Recipe Notes

WINE MATCH: Go for a dry Rosé.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Use gluten-free mayonnaise or aioli, and gluten-free soy sauce.
INGREDIENT SWAPS / NOTES: If you don’t have rice wine vinegar you can use white vinegar instead. Cooked prawns, shrimp or shredded roast chicken are good alternatives to tuna. You can omit the sour cream and add an extra tablespoon of mayonnaise or aioli instead. If you have some dried seaweed on hand, cut this into thin strips and sprinkle on top of the assembled sushi bowls.
STORING AND REHEATING: Store individual portions in containers in the fridge and eat cold.
