California Roll in a Bowl

The Man and I love sushi, but it can be a bit expensive to go out for it everytime I have a craving for it.  And while I do know how to make homemade sushi rolls, it can be a pain.  So I skipped the hassle and just tossed all the ingredients in a bowl.  The sauce could be made by hand if you’d like to, but it’s much easier to use a food processor.  You may like to adjust the amount of wasabi paste in the recipe, depending on how hot you’d like it.  This was a good amount for us, it gave flavor without being too hot for me (I’m not a big fan of wasabi most of the time).

2 cups cooked rice
1/3 cup lite soy sauce
1 teaspoon wasabi
1 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup water
8 oz. Fake Crab Meat
1 Cucumber
5 Sheets of Nori (Roasted Seaweed), Cut or Crumbled into Small Pieces

Cook the rice according to the package.
Using a food processer, blend the soy sauce, cream cheese, avocado, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, and water.
Peel and dice the cucumber and dice the fake crab. Coat with the soy sauce mixture. Mix into the rice.
Let it chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Top with a sheet and crumbled nori, if desired.

Too Much Time On My Hands

Baked Herbed Fish

I know how good fish is for you and I’ve been trying to find a healthy way to eat it that I would like. Unfortunately, I’m not sure that I’ve found it yet. The only way I’ve had fish that I I actually liked was my grandmother’s beer battered catfish, which I don’t think is really all that healthy for you (something about the deep frying that kinda kills the health benefits). I’m not saying that this wasn’t good, just not to my taste. The hubby liked it, but he did make a comment about it maybe tasting more like health food. He added a little lemon juice to his fish, I didn’t think it made much difference.

I served it with what I call baked potato slices. Basically it’s a potato sliced into 1/4 inch slices, sprinkled with some herbs or spices (which ones depend on the day) and then cooked in the microwave for five to ten minutes. You wanted them tender, not crunchy. I discovered these when I was trying to make homemade potato chips one day. They didn’t work for chips, but they were pretty taste and they’ve stuck around the menu.

Now on to the fish:


8 oz tilapia filets
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon basil
1 tablespoon rosemary

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, basil and rosemary in a shallow bowl. Coat both sides of the filets by pressing them into the flour mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, turning over about halfway through.
