Over the years my love for sushi has grown exponentially. My first experience with sushi was in the form of a California roll, which consists of crab, avocado, and cucumber. The flavor combo is pretty great and while I do not order California rolls anymore because I prefer something a little more authentic with raw fish inside or on top, the flavors of a California roll never bore me. This dish is basically an open-faced California roll with a kick, it is easy to make since imitation crab can be bought anywhere and everywhere and is so cheap, especially in comparison to any other seafood. This is definitely a delicious dish that requires not much effort at all...give it a try!
8 oz package of imitation crab meat, flaked
2 Tbsp mayonnaise (we use Japanese mayo)
2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce (you can use more or less for your desired spicy-ness)
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
3-4 cups sushi rice (Calrose), cooked
1/2 cup nori (seaweed), crumbled (the seaweed snack pack from Trader Joe's works great for this)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
1/4 cucumber, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1. In a bowl, combine the flaked crab meat, mayonnaise, Sriracha, and green onion and mix until all the ingredients are evenly mixed and coated. Set aside.
2. Mix together the rice, nori, and sesame seeds until evenly distributed.
3. Assemble bowl into four portions with rice combo on bottom, then cucumber, then crab salad, and topped with avocado. Serve and enjoy!
