In this episode of Ludo à la Maison, the LA chef grills up some delicious seafood for a sushi-inspired snack.
[MUSIC] Welcome to Ludo a la Maison. We are going to do a king crab roll with sushi rice and spicy mayo. As you know California is always hot. It's a boiling crab like this, with hot butter is good when it's cold outside or whatever. It's great. But how I can do that For every day. First we're going to do the rice, okay? So for that you need sushi rice. We put the rice in here. Look if you don't have sushi rice, use another rice, you can use basmati rice, it's fine, too, okay guys? Risotto rice, whatever you have its fine. Now we're going to add three cup of water, cold water. If possible, mineral water, why? Cuz it's better. [UNKNOWN] [FOREIGN]. So put it like this, we bring it to a boil, and after I'm going to cover it, okay? In the meantime, the mirin, the sugar, and the rice vinegar. So you have some butter, I'm going to [UNKNOWN] massage the crab with the butter. Right now, we're gonna cut the crab. Follow me over to the cutting board. Come here. King crab legs, you can get them anywhere in any store now. Don't cut yourself. Make sure your knife is sharp very well cause the shell of the crab are pretty, I would say soft, it's not like, it's hard but it's pretty chewy the shell, it's pretty to cut, you know. The best way is to have a knife with a little bit of a point like this. Crabs are shell first and then just crack it like this. So you know the story about where [UNKNOWN] is before guys.
