I like my lunch meal served in bento boxes . Interesting and food served in bento helps to control food intake in large portion * I know Claire will surely ROFL at this statement * She used to laugh at me when I ordered big portion of food to the table :p I am a big eater and still is or better phrase it this way " I have good appetite " ahem..this sounds better LOL! So eating meals from bentos will be good for me. Food served in small portion looks more appetizing actually :) Food looks more dainty and delicious and a good way to control my gluttonous eating habit * wink . I am a fan of Japanese food and what a good excuse to prepare Japanese meal to take to office !
The last trip to KL, I bought a few packets of Japanese Hokkai Yamato ( a combination of dried seaweed, sesame seed and dried salmon bits with some seasoning ) I sprinkled them onto the japanese rice and shaped them into Onigiri - japanese rice balls...making the rice balls flavorful and tasty !. I served the Onigiri with Pan fried teriyaki Salmon Fillet with crispy ginger shreds , made some Tamagoyaki ( Japanese egg roll ) and seaweed salad. This meal looks like it involved a lot of work but I tell you...NOPE , not really. The salad can be made ahead and while waiting for the japanese short grain rice to be cooked, I got down to make the tamagoyaki. If you know how to make them , you can accomplish them in just 15 mins or less :p Love the whole combination and this is healthy meal for me :)
love this combination - onigiri, tamagoyaki, seaweed salad
and pan fried teriyaki salmon fillet with crispy ginger shreds
making these is fun...wrap them in cling wrap
and shaped them into any shapes you want while
they are still warm.....
this may not be perfect yet but it will be after a few
japanese seaweed salad with soy sauce.
red wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger juice ,sugar and sesame seed
A delicious Japanese bento meal
Have a nice day !
