With Christmas and other holiday parties just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about appetizers to impress.  Something pretty that begins a conversation.  And something heavenly delicious that has your guests asking not only for one more, but also how you came up with this creation. 

Make an appetizer that represents an important experience you had in the past year.  Maybe you traveled to a new place with new flavors.  New Orleans, or Chicago, or San Francisco?  Or maybe to another country like Italy, or Mexico, or Thailand?

Or maybe Japan, with memories of eating the freshest fish at a restaurant you promised yourself to visit again someday.

Whatever place you visited this past year, take a few elements of the cuisine and create something eye-catching.  If it happened to be Japan, try making these wonderfully tasty Salmon Sashimi Wonton Cups

It is that time of the year to splurge a bit, so start with high quality salmon sashimi from Fish for Sushi and season it with some of our spicy Japanese Seven Spice.  Place the raw salmon slices in baked wonton cups, along with a dollop of cream cheese coated with a sprinkling of our festive colored Spicy Korean Chili Seasoning.  And finally, a slice of avocado for a color contrast, and a creamy, complimentary texture to the cream cheese and salmon sashimi.

Makes 30-36 appetizers

30-36 wonton wrappers
9oz of premium Salmon Sashimi (try Fish for Sushi)
