Kiddie Sushi-Style Rolls


  • 2 slices of bread, crusts removed
  • 1⁄2 of a 6-oz can of tuna, or about 1⁄4 of a 14-oz can of salmon
  • 1 1⁄2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 drops of hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2" piece of cucumber, cut into strips
  • 2" piece of carrot, coarsely grated
What to do:
  1. Using a rolling pin, flatten the bread to about 1⁄8" thick.
  2. Mix the tuna or salmon together with the ketchup, hot sauce, and half of the mayo. Spread the remaining mayo over the bread and then spoon the fish onto the bread in a line about a quarter of an inch from the edge. Arrange the cucumber strips on one side of the fish and the grated carrot on the other.
  3. Roll up from the fish end and press down to seal. Trim ends using a sharp knife, then cut into three little rolls.
