Tuna Mayo Rice Balls
Whenever I last minute host lunches or dinners I often find myself resorting to making Tuna Mayo Rice Balls. Technically, all you need is tuna, mayo, and rice. BUT to make it tastier, we can add additional seasoning! Cheers to being an effortless host~

Shall we get started?

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup steamed white rice
  • 1-2 TSP vinegar
  • 1 TSP salt
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
  • 1 cup canned tuna
  • 2-3 TBSP mayo
  • 1 TBSP of sriracha (optional for spicy tuna mayo rice balls)

How to Make:

  • 1. Season your white rice with salt, vinegar, and sesame oil.
  • 2. Let’s prepare our simple tuna mayo filling! Mix a cup of canned tuna and mayo in a bowl. Feel free to add your preferred seasoning here. I personally like black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in mine. Sometimes I’ll add sriracha for spicy tuna mayo rice balls.
  • 3. Flatten a handful of rice. Add your tuna mayo filling on the flattened rice and cover it with another handful of white rice so that the filling is well-covered. Shape it into a ball.
  • 4. You can do half tuna mayo + half kimchi combo as well! (Find kimchi filling recipe here →
  • 5. Garnish it with sesame seeds or furikake.
  • 6. ENJOY!
