Take the imitation or real crab meat and shred it into a bowl.Once you have it shredded and in the bowl add some spicy mayo. Carlito's used about 1-2 tablespoons of spicy mayo but you can add more or less if you'd like!

Step 3: Slice the Filet

Take your wahoo filet and cut thin, long slices and place them on the cutting board. Cut as many slices for as many rolls that you're making. *Remember: one slice per roll.

Step 4: Put Oyster Sauce on Slice

Now that you have your slices in front of you take the oyster sauce and squirt a line onto only ONE SIDE of each strip. Then, take a cooking brush and evenly spread it across each slice. This will act as your adhesive for the smashed potato chips and add a little flavor as well.

Step 5: Add the Crunchy Coating

Take your fish slices that have been coated with oyster sauce and place it in your smashed potato chips to coat one side of the fish. Make sure you place the strips down with the crunchy side up. We used original potato chips for this dish.

*Remember: Use whatever type of potato chips sound good to you. Get creative and let us know what you used!

Step 6: Make Small Portions With the Crab Mix

Once you have the crab mixed with spicy mayo make small portions on your cutting board. You can use as much as you like but I recommend using a small enough portion so it is not too difficult to eat in one bite. These rolls tend to fall apart if you try to take two bites.

Step 7: Wrap the Crab Mix

Once you have the portions that you want begin wrapping the crab mix with the crunchy fish slice. Make sure you wrap it with the crunchy side facing out. *Remember: the top and bottom of the roll will be left open.

Step 8: Add the Sweet Mango

Place the rolls on your dish and begin adding the sweet mango. Place it on the top half of one side so you still have the other half for the salmon roe.

Step 9: Add the Salmon Roe

Repeat the last step again except use salmon roe. It should be half mango and half salmon roe on top. This is what gives the salty sweet flavor to the dish.

Squirt a little curry oil and oyster sauce to add some flavor and make the presentation look pretty. Remember, this step is optional. If you don't like one or both of these sauces you can use a different kind or none at all, it's what you like.
