If you’re in the mood for a spicy tuna roll, but don’t have the ingredients or the time, give these Spicy Tuna Wraps a try. They can be made in about 10 minutes, and they taste similar to the real thing! Plus, I love the addition of fresh vegetables to add nutrition and crunchy texture. If you’re not sure if you like sushi, this is a good starter recipe.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it requires no cooking! I don’t know about you, but these are my favorite kinds of recipes to make in the summer. Especially because that means I don’t have to heat up the whole kitchen.
This recipe is slightly adapted from Goodie Godmother’s recipe. In her post, she comments about how brilliant she feels coming up with this recipe. And I couldn’t agree more! She is a genius!
Spicy Tuna Wraps Ingredients
One of my all time favorite sushi rolls is a spicy tuna roll. And, this wrap is inspired by that roll. Instead of using sashimi-grade tuna, we’ll be using canned tuna. You can just just about any canned tuna you like. For two wraps, you’ll need one 4-5 oz can of tuna.
I would love to have easy access to sushi grade tuna to make my own sushi at home. Unfortunately, I live in a land-locked state. And sushi grade fish is hard to come by or really expensive. So, as an alternative, this recipe uses canned tuna.
Instead of using nori (or seaweed), we’ll be using tortillas. As a low-carb or keto option, you can use lettuce leaves or low-carb tortillas.
And instead of rice, we’ll be adding fresh vegetables to help round out the wrap. I like to add thinly sliced carrots, avocado, and cucumber to my wraps.
Finally, you’ll need a few condiments. Specifically, you’ll need mayo, soy sauce, and sriracha. If you don’t have soy sauce, you can also use Gluten-Free Tamari or Coconut Aminos. My favorite sriracha brands are Huy Fong’s Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce or Bushwick Kitchen Weak Knees Gochujang Sriracha Hot Sauce. But use any sriracha you like!
Spicy Tuna Wraps Prep Tips
First, I like to prep my veggies. Peel your carrots and cucumber, and remove the skin from the avocado. Slice the cucumber in half, and using a spoon, remove the seeds. Next, cut all the vegetables into thin julienne strips.
Since this recipe serves two, you may have extra vegetables left over. Personally, I don’t mind since I eat the leftovers as snacks. Ultimately, you just don’t want to overfill your wrap with vegetables. Otherwise, it will be too full to roll up.
Finally, if you like your filling to be less creamy, only use 1 tablespoon of mayo.
