This Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl is based off a sushi favorite: spicy tuna rolls! It is so easy to make and so yummy! It includes all of the fixings of a spicy tuna roll, including tuna, cucumber, avocado, rice, and a spicy mayo dressing, all in the ease of one bowl!
Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl
Wow! I can't believe how hot it's been already this summer! Its It's like middle of July heat before it’s even officially summer! In this kind of heat, and really all summer long, I hate cooking, which is why I'm super excited to partner with Starkist to share a yummy and fresh no-cook dinner recipe perfect for hot summer nights.
Our house is over 100 years old (built in 1898!), and we haven't put central air conditioning yet. Cooking makes the house so muggy. Blech. So I like to have recipes that I can throw together with minimal effort and heat.
In many of these dishes quick, cold dishes, I like to include because I love it, and it has been one of my favorite foods since I was a kid. Simple tuna salad sandwiches, or a fresh green salad topped with a little tuna and red wine vinegar. Both so good.
I also love sushi, but I don’t like that it’s so hard to make, at least for me. The Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl recipe I’m sharing today is my solution to my little sushi problem.
Spicy tuna rolls are my absolute favorite sushi. But sushi can be expensive to buy, and difficult to make. Enter the Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl! It’s super easy, super quick, inexpensive, and most importantly, mouthwateringly yummy.
I make the Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl with StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.™ Yellowfin Tuna. Yes, from a pouch. And I love it because StarKist Selects E.V.O.O is made with simple, quality ingredients. Just wild caught Yellowfin or Albacore tuna and salmon, EVOO, and sea salt.
StarKist Selects E.V.O.O is packed in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, which is not normally eaten here in the U.S., but actually pretty common in other parts of the world. I love using it in salads and in recipes because not only does it introduce a healthy fat option to your meal, StarKist Selects E.V.O.O also adds a rich, mellow flavor and tender texture.
To make my Spicy Tuna Roll Bowl without cooking, but still include rice, I like to buy frozen steam bags of rice and just pop it in the microwave. You can microwave it in the morning, and then just chill it in the refrigerator until lunch or dinner. If you want to cut down on carbs, you can also substitute rice for riced cauliflower. I include the rice vinegar with the cauliflower, too. I think it really helps it to taste like real sushi. Of course, if you’re more of a spicy salmon roll person, StarKist still has you covered. Make the recipe the same way, just use
>StarKist Selects E.V.O.O.™ Wild-Caught Pink Salmon instead of tuna! Perfect, right?!
Also feel free to load up this bowl with some extra toppings like roasted seaweed, jalapenos, soy sauce, or extra salt, pepper, or sesame oil. Really, the sky is the limit. And be sure to smother on the dressing. Don’t just drizzle. You will thank me. Then, enjoy!
