Made this for a catered event and it was a big hit! I stirred Furikake into the rice after it cooled slightly (added a great Nori flavor) then pressed it into the sheet pan. I didn't crisp them this time, I like them both ways but much easier to skip that step, especially when making 300 pieces. I topped them with a "California Roll Salad" with Sriracha Aioli (pictured), Asian BBQ Shredded Chicken with Sesame Seeds & Garlic Chives (pictured), and Avocado, Maldon Salt & Black Sesame Seeds (not pictured). I plan to make this again & again, trying out new toppings along the way! Thank you for an excellent & unexpected alternative to a crostini :)
What a fun original idea- I made it for a casual dinner party with the spicy tuna and other toppings on the side so people could make it themselves and customize it. Kids and adults loved it. I didn't make the eggplant- but i put bowls of spicy tuna, garnish, sliced avocado and I also offered a smoked salmon and sour cream option with dill garnish (which wasn't as good as the spicy tuna of course). Great idea- I would definitely make it again!
