Seems as though Long Islanders can't get enough fancy fish rolls. Still, it's hard to separate the combinations that work from the ones that are merely ridiculous.

What distinguishes each of these maki rolls is they're colorful yet not crazy, featuring components that come together harmoniously.

At this serene and comfortable Asian spot, the jalapeño yummy roll features peppered tuna and yellowtail with avocado and jalapeño sauce, which offers an eye-opening jolt of citrus. ($13)

RUBY ASIAN FUSION & SUSHI BAR

Ornate but surprisingly harmonious is the Three Stooges roll, wherein pink soy paper enfolds a combination of spicy tuna, yellowtail and avocado. ($12)
