“If you want to try something a little different and you like sushi. Try this. The tuna, cucumber and wasabi cream can be prepared 3 hours ahead. But cover and store separately in refrigerator and then assembled when you are ready to serve the meal. NOTE: I have said 30 minutes for cooking time but the 30 minutes is for the marinade for the cucumber. The whole recipe can be prepared under the 60 minutes that I have allowed. I use more than the 1 1/2 teaspoons of Wasabi as I like it HOT! Enjoy.”
