King Musubi Bento


King Musubi Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Salmon today is furikake salmon. What is furikake salmon, you say?

Here's what I do: Get a nice filet of wild Alaskan salmon and squirt kewpie mayo and sprinkle our favorite nori fumi furikake on both sides. Pan fry till cooked through, flipping carefully halfway. That's it! Super yummy! I can practically guarantee your kids will love it. Also good traditionally with mahi mahi.

Since the fish is so flavorful I thought I could get away with packing a musubi (there's furikake in here too). I made a face with nori and radish, and topped with a crown pick. This little box still had room to pack some steamed peapods, broccoli and purple carrots (which I cut into flowers and skewered on a cute tulip pick). Fruit section has super juicy Cara Cara orange slices, strawberry and a grape. This box is a bit on the small side (450ml) compared to what I usually use, but I think I still managed to squeeze in enough to make him a substantial midday meal ^_^

  14. the musubi is so adorable! Love the crown pick.

    Still loving the purple carrot - can't get purple carrot here at all - I did try growing it one year though - might do that again just so I can get some purple in my bento

  17. Thanks Lil'chan: I hope you can try it, and I hope you like it!

    Thanks Token! Hope you like it :)

    Margot, your bento are so clean and delish, I love looking at them! Thank you!

    Bentobird, he liked this one a lot too, but the musubi was too big! I'll have to restrain myself next time. Thanks a lot!

    Thanks mils, I planted the purple carrot tops too, but can't tell if they came up purple. May have to start from seed, and I can't find them here. Good luck!

    Hi Deanna G, thanks for stopping over! I have LOTS of bento boxes, and get them all over: Daiso, Ichiban Kan, Marukai, Korean groceries, Kinokuniya, Japantown, and of course online: ebay, From Japan With Love, Bento&Co, jlist, and many more. If you live near a Japantown, I would look there first. Good luck!

    St Petersburg accident lawyer, thanks a lot!
