Tuna Maki with Strawberries
A guide, discovered, photographed and written down by professional chef and food photographer Thomas Sixt.
The recipe is based on the original by Thomas Wilden.
Easy Guide for preparing Tuna Sushi with strawberries…
|2||EL||rice vinegar (I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt)|
|1||TL||Sugar (I use brown raw cane sugar.)|
|4||g||Salt (I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt)|
|25||g||Gari (sweet-sour pickled sushi ginger)|
|4||Prisen||Salt (I use Ursalz or Himalayan salt)|
|1||TL||wasabi sesame (Or sesame light/dark)|
|4||EL||sweet soy sauce|
Wash the rice up to seven times until the water is clear.
Mix the wet rice with the water in a pot or in a rice cooker, bring to the boil and let it swell with a lid at low temperature.
Please pay attention to the quantities of the rice cooker, then the rice cooking will be done by itself.
Heat rice vinegar and do not boil, dissolve salt and sugar in it.
I tend to use brown sugar because I like the taste very much.
Mix the cooked rice in a bowl with the rice marinade carefully and evenly and cover the prepared rice with a damp kitchen towel.
A detailed sushi rice recipe you will find supplemented elsewhere.
Place the nori leaf on the bamboo mat.
Rice on nori
Place the rice on the nori leaf evenly to slightly above the edge.
Then turn the nori leaf over.
Sauce on nori
Gari, this is the typical sweet and sour pickled ginger, cut into small pieces and mix with the remaining ingredients.
Spread the mayonnaise sauce horizontally on the middle of the nori leaf.
Cut an elongated strip of tuna from the whole fillet.
Cut tuna strips to a size of 1x1cm.
Put the tuna on the mayonnaise sauce.
Strawberries to clean and small, even pieces along the tuna strip place.
Roll the nori leaf in the bamboo mat and press to form a firm rice roll.
Place the rice roll on a chopping board.
Cover the rice roll with thin slices of strawberry.
Decorate strawberry sushi with sweet soy sauce and wasabi sesame, then cut open with gari, wasabi and soy sauce.
Technical note: Ura-Maki (裏巻き) means “rolled from the inside”, this is also known as California Roll.
The rice is attached to the outside of the Nori leaf.
Ura-Maki are not traditional Maki and have their origin, it is assumed, among Japanese Americans at the Pacific coast of the USA.
These are Purozushi-rolls.

4. Eat Tuna Sushi at Market Hall in Palma de Mallorca
The market hall is definitely worth a visit!
In the brightest colours, the Spanish market stalls offer Mediterranean fruit, vegetables, meat, ham and in particular a huge selection of fish and seafood from the Mediterranean.
I always have my camera with me on such tours in order to photograph this flair, this abundance and this huge offer.
Address: Mercat de l’Olivar, Plaça de l’Olivar, s/n, 07002 Palma, Illes Balears, Spain
5. Sushi at 2 Star Chef Thomas Wilden
In the fish hall I noticed this special stand:
Thomas Wildens Sushibar with artistic, small delicacies!
These exciting ideas caught my eye: Sushi with strawberries and tuna, with fois gras and salmon, with mango and and and…
I can tell you: All these sushi creations by Thomas taste indescribably delicious!
Not only that I tried many sushi right away, but even more:
Thomas showed step by step how to prepare tuna strawberry Maki and I was able to capture everything with the camera.
Purozushi owner Thomas Wilden used to cook at the Richmond Hotel in Geneva at two Michelin-star level.
He was the first to open his sushi stand here in the market hall in Palma and offers locals and tourists extraordinary creations such as “Flamed Nigiri Sushi”.
Here the fish is lightly cooked on the rice ball and gets an extraordinary smoked taste.
