Today’s Bento/Lunch Box (12/22): Cherry Shrimps & Broccoli Tamagoyaki and Karaage Bento!

Today’s bento was a double hit with the Missus’ specialties, what with tamagoyaki and karaage, not mentioning the great majority of local ingredients again!

Again, after steaming plain local rice she seasoned it with her own pickled Japanese pepper seeds/sanshyo!

She completed the box with stir-fried local green peppers and aubergines/eggplants.
As for the home-pickled radishes they come from her family’s garden!

Now, what did the Missus place inside the side box?
Plenty of colors to start with! LOL

First, her special karaage/deep-fried chicken (shallow-fried actually). I definitely tasted some garlic there!
Plenty of lemon for added zip and vitamins and lettuce from the family’s garden!

I very much doubt you could find such a tamagoyaki outside our Prefecture as the Missus made it Yui Harbor Cherry Shrimps and local broccoli! A real delicacy!
She completed the whole with boiled mini corn and snap green peas and more lettuce!
For dessert, imported cherries! Hey, this might be the first time that the word “cherry” has two different meanings in one of my bentos!

Do I need say it was another beauty? LOL

  1. Can you please thank your wife for my today’s lunch inspiration? As I had suspected I couldn’t resist making karaage today 🙂 Delicious, quick and easy as always (even though I make them only with breasts and without garlic). My pickled radish proved a perfect company.


  2. Beautiful, spring-coloured bento! It’s so funny because I have recently posted Pickled Radishes recipe too! Are these radishes pickled in vinegar or in salty brine?
    I think I will make karaage today… it looks too tempting.
