Yes, my Spicy Crab Poke is super fast to put together, with chopping the vegetables taking the most effort and time. And yes again, it’s absolutely delicious with plain sushi rice or soba noodles.
But, this recipe was created for a Movie Awards Party celebrating this season’s best movies and shows.
So that meant upping the ante with gourmet garnishes like Fried Rice Balls and Fried Noodle Cakes! The juxtaposition of the hot garnishes on the cold Spicy Crab Poke is absolutely sublime.
If you decide to make a batch of Fried Rice Balls and/or Fried Noodle Cakes, you’ll want to do them first. They both take a bit of time to make, but most of it is the chilling time in the refrigerator before frying.
Both the rice and noodles use the same diced vegetables as the Spicy Crab Poke, so they take very little additional prep time. How’s that for efficiency?
The good news is, both the Fried Rice Balls and Fried Noodle Cakes can be gently reheated before serving time. I try to always keep my hostess duties in mind when I create a menu for entertaining at home. I insist on enjoying my own parties!
My modus operandi is to prepare the garnishes the day before the party. They keep great, tightly covered and chilled until ready to pop into a low oven to crisp up and heat through.
