Enough about me, here’s the easy sushi recipe I promised.

I found the perfect foolproof sushi rice recipe at MakeMySushi.com.

I used small 4 inch springform pans to shape the towers but you could probably use a ramekin with some ingenuity.

Make the sushi rice before preparing the fish and let cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes in advance of assembling the towers. Chop serrano and green onions and mix with mayonnaise, lime juice and siracha. Cut tuna into small dice and mix with spicy sauce. Slice avocado. Assemble towers; the fish goes first in the pan followed by the rice. Pat rice down over fish. Invert onto your serving dish or onto individual plates. Gentle remove springform pan. Garnish with avocado slices and green onions. Serve with wasabi paste and soy sauce.
