Looking to create an at-home date night but not sure what to serve on the menu? These One Bite Poppers are so easy to whip up as an appetizer in a three-course meal or as a snack as you paint-and-sip at home. —Marie Lynn Whitted
What You'll Need
Oil (of your choice)
Seasoned Rice Vinegar
Black Sesame Seeds (toasted)
Wasabi - for dipping and presentation
Fillings of your choice (ex. protein, veggies, shrimp)
Prepare the rice. Bring water to a boil and add rice and oil. We used Super Lucky Elephant's Thai Hom Mali Jasmine Rice, Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil and a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat for about 15 minutes or until cooked. Set aside, removed from heat.
Combine the rice, seasoned rice vinegar and sesame seeds in a bowl. To avoid clumping, do not stir, but toss gently.
Use wet fingers to palm a layer of rice. Place in filling of your choice. We used diced cucumbers, smoked salmon and mango to make a variety of poppers. Roll firmly into a ball. Repeat using all ingredients.
Add to plate and top with Wasabi for presentation. Enjoy!
