  • 3 large sheets of nori each sheet cut into 4 squares
  • 3 cans of Blue Harbor Wild Albacore (No Salt Added) drained
  • 1/2 lemon Juice of
  • 3 scallions sliced thin
  • 1 tsp of sriracha or any hot sauce
  • 1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 tbsp of mayo
  • 1 cup cooked sushi rice


  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce


  • Pickled Ginger desired amount
  • Wasabi desired amount
  • Soy Sauce desired amount


  • METHODStart by cooking the sushi rice according to their instructions.
  • Preheat your oven to 400
  • Prepare the "spicy tuna" filling by adding the tuna, lemon juice, scallions, sriracha, soy sauce, and mayo to a bowl and combining well.
  • Next, cut the nori sheets into squares. Spray a muffin tin with some non-stick spray. 
  • To assemble the cups, use a spoon or small ice cream scoop and add 2 tbsp of the slightly cooled rice to the middle of a nori sheet. Press into one of the muffin cups. The warmth from the rice will keep the nori from breaking. Press it down gently to form the perfect little cup. Repeat until all 12 are done. 
  • Next, using the same ice cream scoop, scoop 2 tbsp of the tuna into each cup of rice. Repeat until all 12 are done. 
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 
  • Make the spicy sauce when the tuna cups are baking by combining the mayo and hot sauce. Add to the corner of a ziplock bag and cut the tip for easy piping.
  • Once the nori cups are done baking, drizzle with the spicy mayo, garnish with some scallions, and serve with a side of pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy!
