Get creative with the catering at your next party with six inventive ideas for Asian finger foods and canapes, including Japanese finger food, Korean canapes and easy Chinese recipes.
A light and healthy party favourite, homemade Japanese sushi rolls are sure to be a hit at your next event. Fill them with fresh prawns, smoked salmon, teriyaki chicken or cooked tuna, along with cucumber, avocado and carrot. Serve on a platter with soy sauce and pickled ginger.
Filled with a blend of chicken, tofu and mild chilli, these Korean dumplings are ideal as a hot canapé. Serve on ceramic soup spoons for added finesse.
Make golf-ball-sized versions of these golden wasabi croquettes, and serve with Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise for dipping.
For an impressive dinner-party starter or canape, gently sear 24 scallops, then garnish them with matchsticks of fried nori seaweed for added umami flavour and texture. Serve the seared scallops on cleaned scallop shells or soup spoons.
Make a big batch of these char siu chicken rolls in advance, then reheat in the oven just before serving. Serve with a dipping sauce of yoghurt, mint, garlic and paprika.
A popular Korean street food, these dakkochi gui, or chicken skewers, are drizzled with a sweet and slightly spicy sauce. They’re great for outdoor events.
