Serves: 4 PRINT THIS


  • 2 cups cooked sushi rice
  • 2 tbsps rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsps sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 nori seaweed sheets (cut into 4cm strips)
  • 2 Dinko Southern Bluefin Tuna portions, chopped into small cubes.


1 Cook sushi rice according to package instructions.

2 While the rice is still warm, gently mix in rice vinegar and sugar. Season with salt. Set aside.

3 Cut nori sheets into 4cm strips.

4 When the rice has cooled to room temperature, shape the rice into small mounds. Wet your hands before working with the rice to prevent the rice from sticking. Gently press and shape the rice into oval mounds using your hands. You want the rice mounds to hold their shape but not be overly compressed.

5 Wrap a nori strip around each rice mound. Press the nori gently against the rice to make it adhere.

6 Place your diced Southern Bluefin Tuna on top of the rice in the nori "boat."

7 Serve immediately.
