Sushi Cake

Recipe photo courtesy of Anna Williams

Serve this sushi cake as a precursor to a light Asian-style meal, or alone with hot or cold sake. Since no raw fish is used -- only cooked shrimp and lump crabmeat -- the cake can be made ahead of time and chilled until ready to serve.

Cook's Notes

Wasabi, nori, and pickled ginger can be found in the Asian-food section of some supermarkets.

    Unlike the picture, I would cover the entire top with crab! Also, since refrigerating rice messes up the texture, I would prefer to keep it in a cool place, and not let it sit around

    The recipe in the magazine called for 4 oz. of jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over. I would use Dungeness.
