Spicy Tuna on Cucumbers

Submitted by: bbjoys
- 1 package sashimi-quality tuna
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 cucumber, peeled
- 1 stalk green onion, finely sliced
- pinch of salt

To mash the tuna, lay a sheet of plastic food wrap on a cutting board. Place your tuna on the food wrap, then lay a second sheet of food wrap on top to cover your tuna. Using a mallet, smash your tuna until it becomes mushy and fairly pasty.

After your tuna has been mashed, add in the the remaining ingredients. Mix until all ingredients have been evenly combined. You can add more hot sauce if you like it spicier (or use less for milder taste buds). Also, play around with the mayonnaise. You can add more for a creamier texture.

Take your peeled cucumber, and slice it into rounds (as thick/thin as desired). Plate the cucumber rounds, and carefully place a scoop of spicy tuna on top of each cucumber.

Serve immediately.
