Step by step instruction of cooking Appetizer "Snowballs" with crab mousse

Шаг 1

For the dough you need to cook the rice. I took groats in cooking bags of TM "Mistral". The rice need to cook for 15 minutes in salted water.

Шаг 2

A packet of ready rice get it from the pan and let the water drain out. Spread the rice on a plate and cool down completely.

Шаг 3

Now prepare the dough. In a blender put the rice and a protein, season with salt and pepper. Beat until smooth.

Шаг 4

From the dough you need to cook the hemisphere. If you have a semi-circular silicone molds, use them. I appropriate forms were not available, so I made a hemisphere of foil.

First you need to cut in half ball table tennis. And also need to cut a piece of foil about the size of 15x15 cm

Шаг 5

Foil folded four times (in half and in half again). Then put a piece of foil in half of the ball and your fingers to distribute it throughout the hemisphere, turning in edges.

Шаг 6

In the end, it turns smooth, hollow half ball of foil. Ready hemisphere need to be oiled.

Шаг 7

Now from the dough with wet hands to form small pellets and stick them around the forms of foil. Out of this number of ingredients it turns out 10 of the hemispheres. Bake at 180C until lightly Golden, approximately 25-30 minutes (focus on your oven).

Шаг 8

Ready rice hemispheres remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Шаг 9

Meanwhile you need to cook the filling for the "snowballs". In the bowl of a blender place the crab sticks, yogurt and season with ground black pepper (optional). All whisk until homogenous.

Шаг 11

You also need to prepare the tartare of cucumber and corn. Cucumber peel and seeds and finely chop with a knife.

Шаг 12

Corn finely chop or grind in a blender.

Шаг 13

Cucumber and corn mix, season to taste with salt and ground black pepper.

Шаг 14

When harvesting of rice has cooled, they should be separated from the foil. Walk your fingers along the edge, pressing the crispy dough to the foil. Then carefully remove the foil. Despite the fact that the foil was greased, the dough is hard enough separated, as it is very sticky. A little patience and everything will work out :)

Шаг 15

Just before serving, you need to fill "snowballs" filling. Within each hemisphere is put a teaspoon of crab mousse, spread on the walls and make a small indentation in the center. Him to put 1/2 a teaspoon of tartare of cucumber and corn. To do with all the blanks. 5 of them to put some mousse and glue with the other 5 pieces.
