Our Creative Cooking Crew April challenge was to pair a cocktail with a canapé. Easier said than done as I like my wine and rarely touch strong liquor except for sake and vodka on occasions.
Friends came to visit from Ireland and brought us some smoked salmon which I decided to use for this post.
The martini was made with equal parts of vodka and sake, ginger sugar and wasabi for the rim.
Cut the salmon in strips and place around mold to create the rose.
This was so easy to make and it does pack a lot of flavor as the Japanese 7 Spice has cayenne, sesame seeds, orange peel, ginger, Szechuan pepper, poppy seeds and strips of seaweed.
