In the first place what we will do will be to put to cook the rice. In a pot we will put the rice, with the double of the volume of the rice of water and a pinch of salt. We will put to heat the pot to medium fire and, when it breaks to boil we will put the rice, we will stir and we will cover. Let it cook between 15 and 20 minutes until the rice is cooked to our liking. Once it is ready, strain it and let it cool down.
While it cools the rice we will prepare the filling, for it we will chop the lettuce, the surimi and the olives, we will grate two of the cooked eggs and the carrot. In a bowl we will mix all the ingredients along with tuna, peas and mayonnaise until you get a homogeneous paste.
Next we will prepare the base of rice, for it we will use a mold that we will cover with paper film so that it does not stick and to demold it with facility. Put half of the rice as a base in the mould, press with the help of a spoon so that it is pressed. We will add the filling and we will press again and to finish we will add the rest of the rice and we will press again.
Once it is ready, let it rest in the fridge until it is ready to serve. We can decorate it with a little boiled egg and sliced tomato. To give it a little more colour, sprinkle with chopped chives.
