Makes about 5 servings of 4 oz of fish.
1 egg roll wrapper has only 35 calories


2 cans Albacore Tuna in water (drained)
5 sheets of all natural egg roll wrappers
1 bunch brocollini (about 6 stalks)
½ avocado
½ cup peas
2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic
1/8 cup diced onion
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
½ cup lemon juice
2 tbsp powdered wasabi or horseradish
¼ cup nutritional yeast ( tastes like cheese )
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp. finely diced jalapeno pepper
Salt & pepper to taste
1 egg beaten


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 1: Chop of the heads of your brocollini. In your food processor combine the peas, avocado, onions, garlic, lemon juice, jalapeno pepper, brocollini and red pepper flakes. 

Step 1
Step 2: Blend until a you have a thick sauce like texture( add more lemon juice if needed ). Pour into bowl and add in the canned tuna, wasabi powder, cilantro, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper.

Step 2

Step 3: Place in the center of the wrapper about 4 oz of your mixture and fold over, use the egg mixture to seal the sides by placing a dab of egg mixture on each fold. Place the wrap crease side down on a lightly greased flat baking pan. Repeat process for each roll. After you are done with the rolls, brush the egg mixture on top of each roll.

Step 3
Step 4: Bake in oven at 375 for about 20 min. Switch the oven to Broil, and broil on medium for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and serve with the brocollini stalks and you favorite sauce; I used a roasted red pepper sauce (your brocolini sauce also is a great dip).
Crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside. And so very good for you!! Enjoy!
