Wasabi Rice Cakes
Rice, even the picture above, may not excite you until I tell you a little more information. The rice is sushi rice meaning its mixed with sugar and rice vinegar, it's coated with sesame seeds and furikake, fried lightly in sesame oil, and yes that white sauce on the side is wasabi-mascarpone. We served this as an appetizer, and it makes a tasty snack. Like the california roll salad, it is reminiscent of the sushi flavors, but with a much richer, not quite dessert taste that is new but familiar. The recipe can be found here.
