Crispy Won Ton:

½ lb of your favorite poke
1 8oz package of imitation crab (or fresh crab, if available), chopped
½ cup seaweed salad, chop and mix with crab
8 oz prepared Kalua Pork" target="_blank" title="Kalua Pork - Click to order online">kalua pork, shredded (click to order)
½ cup lomi-lomi salmon
½ cup lite cream cheese
8 oz smoked salmon
To make the crispy won ton cups, preheat oven to 375° F and lightly spray mini-muffin tins with cooking spray. Brush each side of the won ton wrappers with canola oil then gently press into the mini-muffin tin sections, making a little cup shape. Bake until crispy, about 8-10 minutes. You can do this step a day ahead, just store in a sealed container.
Make a few of each kind of appetizer and you’ll have something for everyone! Fill a cup with poke’, another with the crab and seafood salad mixture, top shredded kalua turkey with a small dollop of lomi-lomi salmon, and top cream cheese with a rosette of smoked salmon. Serve immediately.
