Deep Fried Tempura Fish Maki

I have some leftover fried fish.What should I do with it?.Usually I don't throw away my leftover food.I modified or reheat it the next day to make another meal for myself.But this time,I decided to make tempura maki.This type of deep fried maki is really popular in any Japanese restaurant.Usually it's ideal for those who don't eat raw fish. Since I have the ready fried fish,all I need is just sushi rice,avocado,nori,tobiko and some Japanese mayo.
You can refer to this and this and this how to wrap your maki/roll

I coated the maki/roll with tempura flour batter before deep fried in clean oil for 10-15 minutes.Becareful when deep frying,do not let the nori break away or leaked in the oil.If that happend,throw away your roll.

Make sure when you cut maki,use a very sharp knife. After each cut,wipe your knife with wet paper towel or submerge your knife in a bowl of cold water.Then the sushi rice won't stick to your knife when you cut the next pieces.

This type of deep fried maki have to eat while the roll is still warm or hot .I like to eat this type of deep fried maki as it's with out sauce.I know some people like to dip with shoyu and wasabi.It's not really hard to make.You can use any leftover fried food for the roll/maki.
