It’s finally Spring, but New England kind of doesn’t care about seasons, so it’s already snowed a few times. But listen, I’m not here to talk about the drunk weather patterns of New England, I’m here to share a new recipe I’ve developed in partnership with Trident Seafoods, working with delicious surimi by Louis Kemp. Being a full-time student & working part-time is no easy feat, especially when you also need to find time to feed yourself & not break the bank. This is especially true for any working busybody or mom, so I came up with a recipe that y’all can bang out in 20 minutes or less!
If you’re new around these parts, hi, I’m Tiffany & I’m addicted to sushi. It’s always my default craving, however very expensive, especially when I want to blow my wallet on omakase. I admit that sometimes all I want is just a California roll–invented by Chef Ichiro Mashita who wanted to appease his LA customers who were turned off by the nori (seaweed) in sushi by flipping the rice inside out–because it’s an inexpensive & reasonable alternative to raw fish. This is especially appealing if you’re pregnant or scared of raw fish, so embrace this tasty alternative, y’all! Louis Kemp Crab Delights are made from Alaskan Pollock—a highly sustainable white fish also known as the world’s biggest source of palatable fish, which is commonly used in imitation crab products—and real snow crab. Let me just smash cut to the chase since I know you just HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT IS I’VE MADE THAT ONLY TAKES 20 MINUTES TO MAKE, HURRY UP. It’s a deconstructed California roll in a bowl! Let me introduce you to my version of a quick & easy California roll fix for busy moms, millennials, people, everyone: the Spicy California Sushi Bowl. Spicy is always optional, but it’s essential in my household because the kick makes life more interesting.
Spicy California Sushi Bowl
My recipe is simple, but very tasty. Who has time to roll sushi during the week? Deconstruct it & stick it in a bowl. Most California roll recipes ask for just some mayo to mix with your surimi, but that’s boring to me, so I spiced it up with Kewpie mayo, Sriracha, hot sesame oil, & ichimi togarashi. You don’t need a food processor for this, but I would highly recommend it if you have a small one. Make your chopping life easier!
Whether you want to make this a low-carb version by substituting the rice with salad, surimi can be served hot or cold, & is a good source of lean protein. It’s also high in omega-3’s, affordable, low in mercury—so all you pregnant ladies can gobble this up to satisfy your sushi cravings—& most importantly, it’s delicious. I always have a pack of surimi in my freezer. I love adding it to my ochazuke when I’m too lazy to poach an egg. Louis Kemp Crab Delights are nutritious, low in calories, cholesterol, & are fully cooked, making it a great choice for your next meal or snack. I especially love that it’s made with real crabmeat too!
