Coat the bottom of a non-stick frying pan with vegetable oil and place over high heat. When oil is hot enough to sizzle, fry each piece for about a minute on each side, or until golden brown. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate. 6. When cool, enough to handle, arrange rice pieces on a serving platter. Place spicy tuna mixture onto top to cover. Garnish with sliced scallion and serve. makes 41/2 lb sushi grade tuna, 1 tablespoon mayo (or Veganaise), 1/2 tablespoon Sriracha, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce, 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil, 1 ½ cups cooked sushi rice, 2 tablespoons Furikake Japanese seasoning (or mixed black and white sesame seeds), vegetable oil, scallion, sliced to garnish.
