Do you, like me, crave sushi at home? Perhaps you spend your free time creating elaborate home-crafted hand-rolls, but I prefer to make deconstructed sushi.
Pretty quick and easy. First, saute three scallions in a splash of canola and sesame oil, add a tablespoon each of minced garlic and ginger and cook until soft. Set aside to cool. Then, in a small bowl, add 1/8 cup of low-sodium soy sauce, a teaspoon each of minced ginger and wasabi paste and stir until well combined.
In a larger bowl, mix 1.5 cups of cold cooked brown rice with 6-8 ounces of good quality crab meat, a diced ripe avocado, a small diced cucumber and the scallion mixture. Then drizzle the soy sauce mixture on top and gently fold until well combined. Instant California roll.
For a cool, refreshing summer dish, consider making deconstructed sushi, and feel free to combine your favorite flavors to make the dish your own. Granted, it's not the prettiest meal, but it sure is tasty.
