Sushi-grade tuna (about 6 oz works for 2 people)
1 avocado
1 cup uncooked Japanese style rice (short grain, white)
2 Tbs rice vinegar
1 Tbs sugar
Salt to taste


Bring 2 cups water on a stove to a boil with the rice. Cover and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.

Chop tuna and avocado into bite size pieces and combine with mayo-sriracha mixture. Adjust sauce based on your taste.

Once rice cools, add vinegar, sugar and salt to the pot. Pack rice into a ramekin or small bowl to form the tower.

Turn over on a plate and add the tuna mixture to top.

Add soy sauce, additional sriracha, wasabi and chopped green onions if desired.
