Sushi meets sandwiches? Wait, hear me out. This sandwich is inspired by one of my favorite sushi rolls, the classic salmon and avocado, with a spicy Japanese-mustard kick. It combines smoked salmon, avocado, and wasabi cream cheese, served on dark rye or pumpernickel bread, and in addition to capturing sushi flavors, it evokes bagels and lox. Plus, it's a lot easier to make than sushi. Watch and see how it's done.

I caught these designer console skins from WaSaBi while cruising the merch area at this year's Tokyo Game Show, and spent about ten minutes trying to decide on whether or not to splurge. I'm kind of loving the cherry blossom theme on the right, but I can't tell if it would take away from the natural and minimalist feel of the Wii, and/or clash with the rest of my decor. The other designs are pretty sweet too but still, I've never been one to mod my consoles, even if it's with a $20 skin. Help me decide — what do you think?
Spicy wasabi peas can kick up your party-food spread, and this popular snack can do the same for a thick piece of salmon. The sinus-clearing punch of horseradish mellows out when the peas are ground up and used as a coating on roasted fish. Zest of lime and shredded cabbage make for a pretty plate, while another pea — sugar snap — offers even more crunch with a touch of sweetness.
