Serves: 8
Ingredients
FOR THE CRISPY RICE CAKES:
  • 1-3/4 cups Water
  • ¼ Rice Vinegar
  • 2 cup Short Grain Rice
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp. Granulated Sugar
  • Avocado Oil, as needed for frying
FOR THE HORSERADISH CREAM SAUCE:
  • ½ cup 4% Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. Stone Ground Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp. Horseradish
  • 1 tbsp. Chopped Chives
  • 1 tbsp. Chopped Italian Parsley
  • Kosher Salt, to taste
FOR THE PICKLE SUSHI:
  • ½ lb. Thinly Sliced Roast Beef
  • Mt. Olive Dill Pickle Chips, as needed
  • Chopped Italian Parsley, as needed
Instructions
  1. Rinse the rice in cold water in a large fine mesh strainer for 1 - 2 minutes. Or until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  2. Bring water and rice vinegar to a boil in a large stockpot. Carefully add the rinsed rice, sugar and salt and cook according to the packaged directions. About 20 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.
  3. While the rice is cooking, whisk together all ingredients for the horseradish cream sauce. Set the mixed sauce in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.
  4. Allow the rice to cool so it’s easy to handle. Place plastic wrap along the bottom of a square casserole dish. Pour rice into the dish and cover with another piece of plastic wrap. Press until evenly flat, the rice should be in a square shape. Freeze for 45 minutes.
  5. Carefully lift the semi-frozen rice out of the casserole dish and cut into 8 squares. Heat avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Shallow pan-fry the rice squares on each side until browned and crispy. Drain on a plate lined with a couple paper towels. Depending on the size of your pan, you may have to work in batches.
  6. While the rice cakes are still warm, top with a heavy drizzle of horseradish cream, thinly sliced roast beef, pickle chips and Italian parsley. Enjoy immediately.
