Inari Stuffed With CrabFrom xerxes 8 years ago
- 1 dozen fresh or dried inari. If using dried inari, you'll need to steam them for a few minutes in a bamboo steamer over boiling water, about 10 min shopping list
- 16 oz fresh or tinned crabmeat shopping list
- 2 Tbsp wasabi mayonnaise (found at asian markets or finer grocers) shopping list
- 1/4 cup fresh snipped chives shopping list
- 2-3 sheets yakinori (the seaweed sheets used for sushi making) shopping list
- 6 eggs, beaten shopping list
- olive or vegetable oil shopping list
How to make it
- Steam the inari as described above, set aside on a paper towel
- In a medium bowl, mix the crabmeat with the wasabi mayonnaise. If you can't find wasabi mayonnaise, most stores carry wasabi by itself. Simply mix it with regular mayo or cool whip 1:3
- add in the chives
- fill each inari with the crab salad. Take care not to overstuff them, so you can fold the open end under to seal. Set these aside
- Heat a large griddle or skillet, and add the oil
- pour in half the beaten eggs, as though making an omelette, however do not fold in half
- once done, turn out the flat omelette onto a large plate or clean cutting board.
- place enough yakinori sheets over the flat omelette to completely cover it.
- Repeat the omelette step above, except this time turn out the 2nd one on top of the yakinori, thus making an egg/yakinori sandwich. Let this whole thing chill for about 10 min in the refrigerator.
- Once chilled cut the egg/yakinori into 2"X2" squares
- place a crab-stuffed inari on each egg square. Skewer each one with a toothpick and serve.
- Photo to follow soon! I promise!

This sounds really good. I've been to Japan twice and have had inari usually filled with rice and quite sweet. This would be a nice change.joe1155 in Munchen loved it
These sound delicious. If I still lived in Los Angeles I could easily find Inari, however, out here in the middle of the desert I am miles from anything even close to an Asian market. Still, maybe I can find a way. Thanks; it's a 5.shibattou in Fort Mohave loved it
