Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentaschen are perfectly crunchy and delicious!
These little Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentaschen are addicting. They’re crunchy, savory, and with good quality sushi grade fish, they’re an elevated way to serve sushi.
It’s not original
Here’s the truth disclaimer: This is not my original recipe.
I’m very big on giving credit where credit is due. I was perusing Instagram and found Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice on @thefeedfeed by @Alexawhatsfordinner. Here’s the link to the original recipe: https://thefeedfeed.com/alexawhatsfordinner/spicy-tuna-crispy-rice .
I saw this recipe and knew that it would be perfect for Purim. I figured that instead of cutting the rice into squares, I could just cut them into triangles, top the crispy rice triangles with sushi tuna/salmon and they’d be amazing for a Purim appetizer.
Making the recipe my own
One of the big differences from the original recipe is the shape of the crispy rice. I also didn’t include any fancy sauces – I just used store bought spicy mayo, which was way easier. Especially when I’m insanely busy.
It’s a great recipe and I’m sharing it with you.
Here’s the recipe
I have just a few extra comments to add.
The Tuna & Salmon
One thing to make sure is that you get sushi grade tuna and salmon. Regular store bought tuna and salmon won’t cut it. Sushi grade is made to be eaten raw, the regular fish that you find in the store must be cooked. Some stores have better quality sushi grade fish than others. The better quality the fish, the better your sushi will taste.
It’s that simple.
The Sushi Rice
For this Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentaschen, you can be creative with your sushi rice, using black “forbidden”, brown or even bamboo sushi rice for more Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentasch fun!
In my book “Shabbos Under Pressure – Cooking with Pressure = Pressure Free Cooking” I added a recipe for Bamboo Sushi with Smoked Salmon. Bamboo rice is super exciting green sushi rice.
Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentaschen are crispy triangles of seasoned fried short grain rice, topped with sushi grade tuna and salmon. Garnished with zebra sesame seeds, wasabi and pickled ginger, and served with your favorite sushi dipping sauces, it’s a festive way to start your Purim Seuda!
For the crispy triangles
- 2 cups sushi rice, rinsed until water runs clear
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/ 4 cup canola or vegetable oil, for frying
For the Fish
- 2 ounces sushi grade tuna
- 2 ounces sushi grade salmon
- 2 teaspoons spicy mayo, or more to taste
- Sliced cucumber, shredded carrots, wasabi, pickled ginger (for garnish)
- Assorted dipping sauces, optional
For the crispy triangles
- Cook the rice according to package directions.
- Once the rice is done cooking fluff with a fork and stir in the rice wine vinegar, granulated sugar, sesame oil, and salt.
- Line a medium-sized baking pan (around 8×8) with plastic wrap.
- Pack the rice into the pan, I covered my hands with vinyl gloves and that helped keep the rice from sticking to my hands.
- Cover the rice more plastic wrap and refrigerate least 3 hours.
- Line a baking sheet with paper towels and place a wire cooling rack over the baking sheet. Set aside.
- Remove the rice from the refrigerator and, using a small triangle cookie cutter, cut triangles out of the rice. Dip the cutter into a cup of water in between each cut to help keep the cuts clean.
- Add the oil to a large skillet. Heat the oil over medium-high heat and fry the triangles, in batches, until browned on each side.
- Place the triangles on the prepared wire rack and allow to cool.
For the Fish
- Finely chop the tuna and mix with the spicy mayo. Set aside.
- Finely chop the salmon. Set aside.
- Top each crispy triangle with a small amount of tuna or salmon.
- Garnish with sliced cucumber, shredded carrots, wasabi and pickled ginger.
- Serve with your favorite dipping sauces.
Depending upon the size of your cutter, you may get more or less than 40 Crispy Rice Sushi Hamentaschen.
