Spicy Tuna Roll: Papi Style

Once again, Papi outdoes himself in the kitchen! This is his version of the Nobu Spicy Tuna Roll. I'd go as far as to bet that this is better than the original. seriously.

Ingredients to Make Tuna Roll

Cucumber diced in small spears

Avocado diced to size match the cucumber spears

Cut thin slices of Jalapeno (one per Tuna slice)

Cut slivers of Aji Amarillo (one per Tuna slice)

Cut thin slices of Tuna in 1W x 4L inch long cuts (long enough to be able to roll them around the avocado and cucumber)

Ingredients to make the Cilantro marinade


Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

Cumin to taste

½ of a lime’s juice

1 whole Aji Amarillo (you can substitute Aji Amarillo Paste)


Let Tuna sit in Cilantro Marinade ½ hour

Roll Tuna around Avocado and Cucumber

Top with a Dollop of Wasabi

Place very thinly sliced Jalapeno on top of Wasabi (Cross cut in circle – shake of seeds)

Place thin slice/sliver of Aji Amarillo on top of Jalapeno


Aren't they gorgeous?? aahhh, I want it again ASAP!

i'll leave you with this little nugget of Papi and his brother, my Uncle Oscar.....they are the BEST!
