We wanted to get some sushi rolling practice in before teaching a Sushi & Sake class at work. Here’s the plate we came up with: Spicy Salmon, Spicy Tuna and our very own Blowout Roll!
Last recipe we did ceviche in lime juice. This time we tried lemon. How do you like dem apples?
This recipe comes from my favorite restaurant in Napa, Mustards Grill. It’s become a tradition to eat lunch at Mustards at least once with the family when out visiting over Christmas and this time I bought their cookbook as a present to myself after another great meal. Give them a visit the next time you’re in California wine country!
We were introduced to these bite-sized hors d’oeuvres at our friends’ wedding. After trying one, we immediately stationed ourselves by the door of the kitchen to intercept the waitress as she came back out with reloaded platters. They were just too good to warrant any self-control.
Ponzu has a very unique flavor profile. Salty at first with a vinegary, citrus finish. We’ve added some cayenne and pepper flakes to ours, which tastes great with the tuna if you don’t have wasabi.
