I decided to try something different and make a fusion dish. The tastes are complex, and depending on how you serve it you get two different experiences. The amusing part of this dish is the total cost of all ingredients run about $5.00
[Editors note: I am a 'techie' guy more then a chef, so the photo's / presentation is a bit 'rough']
Step 1: Ingredients
1 Pack of Wasabi rice crackers .99
1 Lb 'Kosher' Lox ends 2.50
1 tin wasabi powder .99
(You can also use prepared wasabi, just be careful that stuff is really strong)
Step 2: Preparing
put them in a mix master run it for about 20 seconds till the salmon is a tartar / chopped meat
consistency. Put in a plastic disk and cover, Chill in refrigerator for 20 mins.
Step 3: Making the wasabi cream cheese
remember that wasabi is a very strong ingredient and too much can turn your snack
into a practical joke.
Step 4: Preparing the dish
star or fish shape, put it on top of the base of cream cheese
Step 5: The Finished Product
about 1/4 gram of fat per serving (without the cream cheese)
Time to prepare about 20 mins
the flavor of the salmon, and wasabi cracker is really yummy, gentle and subtle
with the cream cheese you get a much stronger wasabi hit, but the lox still shines thru.
