Poke Bowl

The free-wheeling cousin of sushi, a good poke bowl can be a make-your-own adventure meal with whatever you have on-hand. The fish can be sauced or un-sauced, depending on your preference. Here are some ideas:

To season your fish, mix together the following to taste:
Soy sauce
Sesame oil
Rice vinegar
Green onion

To make your poke bowl, compose many or few of the following together in a bowl:
Sushi rice flavored with rice vinegar and sugar and/or mirin
Tuna or salmon, seasoned (or not) as above

Sushi Bake

Who knew we'd been eating sushi wrong all this time? Apparently Filipinos and Hawaiians.

I used this website for guidance and accompanied it with this cucumber salad.

Crab Rangoon

All I can say is this crab rangoon recipe is ... delicious!! Shamelessly stolen.

Obviously, this is a "notional" recipe.

Roughly equal parts cream cheese (at room temperature) and imitation crab meat (chopped up)
(Go a little heavy on the cream cheese)
Chopped green onion
Dash garlic powder
Smaller dash soy sauce
Enough won ton wrappers (recommend cutting them in half and makings smaller pouches)

Mix ingredients together (except won ton wrappers).

Crabmeat Remick

From Emeril via the Food Network. Good but not great. Lumpy crab is key, but expensive. Even high-quality canned mixed with fake falls short. Needs something more?

1/2 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon tarragon vinegar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce
1 pound lump crabmeat, picked over for shells and cartilage
