Whether it’s Spanish soccarat, Persian tahdig or Filipino tutong, crispy rice is one of those simple, easy pleasures that elicits the same comforting response wherever you are in the world. Rice bowls can get repetitive, so this recipe uses crispy rice as a base instead, and brings a lot of texture to an otherwise familiar pairing.
To top our crispy rice, we’ve partnered with San Miguel del Mar to create a no-cook dressed topping that comes together in no time but highlights the quality of their premium tuna. What’s great about their product is that each can is made with no extenders, and no preservatives, and their 100% pure tuna chunks. Their bigger tuna chunks hold up to being tossed in a bowl with vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce, and sesame oil, so each bite packs a ton of bright, spicy flavor.
