Need some spicy tuna sushi help.
Anyone have any ideas for a pesachdik version of the spicy mayo that they use for spicy tuna sushi?
I was thinking of a spicy tuna roll substituting quinoa for rice. I don't see any problem finding the fresh tuna, but most of the spicy mayo recipes suggest canned Japanese chilies. I've eaten my weight in these but never tried to make one.
Failing this, my Plan B is ceviche. The more I think about it, ceviche is a perfect pesach appetizer.
re: the spicy tuna...while not traditional, i've seen places make it with cayenne. the quinoa is an interesting idea, though you'd have to cook it to the point where it gets a but gummy so the grains stick together. or you could take a tip from this guy...
he adds a little potato starch to the nori to help it stick!
That stuff genuinely tastes like a-s-s. Nowhere near the nightmare of the faux mustard some genius tried to foist on us years ago. Pesach doesn't need to mean crappy condiments, but somehow the bigger manufacturers feel they can get away with it -- case in point: there's never been a decent ketchup, and there's not a single ingredient in it that couldn't be Pesachdik.
