Note from Delish:

I got a request from one of my followers to prepare something easy and healthy and that kids will love. This tuna shanghai rolls is what I can suggest. I also used canola oil to make it even healthier.

Since I used grated potatoes, I have to drain or squeeze out its juice to avoid too much liquid on the mixture. I want to add texture to the filling that’s why I added potatoes.
