Well, it’s because I love the miniature versions of food, which are as adorable as they are delicious apetizers. They also work perfectly for kids who are picky about their food (like my son Tomás).

Same thing with the fresh crisp that lettuce has. Combine these with a spicy touch of ginger that, when mixed with soy sauce, gives the dish an original touch.
