The Missus is “geared up” for making bento on Wednesdays so things had to be kept simple today!
As you can see it was almost all sushi!
After steaming the rice she blended it in sushi rice fasion addin finely shredded pickled daikon.
She fried shrimps she had beforehand seasoned and coated with a little cornstarch.
She shaped the te-mari sushi (small sushiballs) between her palms before pressing their top to form a small bowl in which she placed a little coleslaw and a shrimp.
She wrapped each te-mari in lettuce and placed them in the bento box.
For more garnish and dessert I had the onsen tamago again with its yolk beautifully running and sprinkled with black sesame seeds.
She also included daigaku-imo she made the night before with two kinds of sweet potatoes.
The daigaku-imo are called so as they were very popular with penniless students in Tokyo back a long time ago!
Tasty and hearty!
