My friend Coteya introduced me to this recipe a couple of years ago when we were at the university and too lazy too cook a prepare meal. Now every time I prepare it I think about my good friend and how much we both love this recipe.
It’s a fresh dish based in couscous that can be eaten as a side or as a whole dish. Since I’m not having any more gluten I started preparing it with quinoa instead but the original recipe is with couscous.
– 1 cup of couscous
– 1 pack of crab sticks (a.k.a kanikama)
– 3 boiled eggs
– 2 green onions
– 2 avocados
– sesame seeds
– soy sauce
Step by Step
– Put the couscous in a bowl. Add boiled water, salt and 1 teaspoon of oil. Cover with a cloth until the couscous absorbed the water. When it’s ready put some butter, mix and wait until it cools down.
– Cut the crab sticks, boiled eggs, green onions and the avocado in small squares.
– Mix everything in the bowl with the couscous and add 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.
– Spread some sesame seeds
Make a “fancy” version of it replacing the crab sticks for smoked salmon or shrimps.
You can eat Coteya’s couscous as a side salad for barbecues or for a buffet. Just eat it as a cold dish like we use to do back in the goods days. So delicious and easy to make!
