How to Make Tasty Mayo Marinated Tuna and Avocado - Video Recipe

These days, we see on TV that the oil price increase hit deep-sea tuna fishing industry.
Too sad... I love tuna!
How times have changed!!!
I wonder whether we are doing the right things for future generations...




Today I will translate my recipe using "sushi-su" (sushi vinegar or Japanese seasoned rice vinegar). It is a rice vinegar mixed with sugar and salt. The most popular manufacturer of sushi-su is Mizkan! Their products are also available overseas!

The slightly sweet flavor of sushi-su gives a small amount of mayonnaise a rich flavor, which is better for your health ;)

  1. Hi Ochi,

    Your recipe sounds delicious! You know what I like too, is salmon. I make salmon cakes. Price is $3.00 per can, and makes 5 salmon cakes. Never ate avacado. I'm sure I would like because I like most vegetables. Will have to check out cooking contests.!! Vinegar tastes good with a lot of recipes! Oil prices hitting all industries, sickening!
