In The Kitchen: BAKED SUSHI RICE

One of the things I miss the most from living in Hawaii is that there was a really strong sense of Ohana (Ohana means Family!) and family didn't mean your immediate relatives it meant everyone and anyone you knew!  There were always get-togethers.. it seemed like just about EVERY week there was a get-together/pot luck/BBQ happening.  Just amazing people getting together and having a good time.


At one of these said pot lucks someone brought this dish. 

And I swear when I tried it I was like WHOA.

It's so awesome, delicious, fun and interactive.


Ingredients:

4 Cups of Cooked Rice
1/2 Pound Surimi (Imitation Crab)
6 Stalks of Green Onion
1/2 Cup Sour Cream (I use Light)
1/2 Cup Mayo (I use Light)
1 Tbsp Honey
Cooking Spray
1/2 Can of Furikake
1 Avocado
Korean Seaweed
Wasabi (Optional)
Soy Sauce (Optional)


Pre-Heat Oven 300 Degrees F.

Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.


Fill with your cooked rice.


Pat the rice down firmly into the baking dish.

(You can use whatever pan/dish you have or prefer I just like to use a clear one because you can see all the "layers" that you "build" :)


Take off the plastic wrapping that separates your Surimi.


Cut each one in half.


Shred into small pieces.


In a cup mix your mayo.


Honey


And Sour cream and mix all three together thoroughly.


Dice your green onions and add it to your shredded Surimi.


Add your cream mixture to your green onion & Surimi mix.


Mix together thoroughly.


Sprinkle 1/2 of your Furikake on top of your rice.


Make sure to completely cover your rice.  

You can use less or more if you prefer but this is where a lot of the "flavor" in your dish will come from. 


Now take your creamy Surimi mixture and top your Furikake.


Spread evenly so that it completely covers your Furikake.

And pop into the oven about 15 to 20 mins.. just until you notice the Surimi starts to brown.


While your dish is baking you can slice your avocado.


After your dish starts to brown you can take it out of the oven.


Top off with your sliced Avocado!


Take your seaweed and add a spoonful of your Baked Sushi Rice and eat!

Enjoy w/ some Wasabi & Soy sauce!

Super fun and interactive so you can see why this is great for parties/get-togethers.

If you want a larger portion for a party ect just double up on all the ingredients :)

Sidenote: You should use a small spoon and drizzle the soy sauce on don't try to dip it INTO the soy sauce it will fall apart into the sauce lol.

(Shout out to Wei-Wei for sending me this recipe!! Thanks hon :)

  3. That looks yummy. I'll have to give that a try. Hawaii reminds me of Guam. We have fiestas just about every weekend, and almost everyone is invited. It's a lot of fun, and the food is so good. Most of the food is a combo of Guamanian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Filipino. Just thinking about it makes me hungry, lol! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
